Soft skills: Smart skills for Organizations
Soft skills like leadership, decision-making, conflict resolution, negotiation, communication, creativity and presentation skills are essential for organizational success and for maximizing human capital in any organization. When balanced with a good management team and an effective human resource management system, soft skills provide a way to get the highest return to the investment in terms of human capital. While professional skills may open the door of opportunity, soft skills keep you in the driver’s seat. In other words, technical skills get you in the door, but soft skills keep you in the job.
Many organizations fail even though they have great ideas and great talent because they lack the appropriate structures and processes to move forward. In addition, when the focus is too much on “hard skills”, the dynamics in the workplace become difficult to manage and many organizations never see their first anniversary because they lack soft skills.
