SOFT SKILLS

Soft skills are a combination of interpersonal people skills, attitudes and social skills. Unlike hard skills, soft skills relate to your attitude and intuitions. Why do soft skills matter? Most importantly because they are interacting skills. Soft skills are desirable in the work place and in our everyday life. They play an important role in how an individual is perceived.
