You might be able to “communicate” with your wife and friends, but if you can’t do the same with your co-workers or boss – you’re actually lacking that “soft skill.”
According to Bruno, these are the 3 most important soft skills employers want you to have:
- Communication: Employees at every level must have open channels of communication with their superiors, co-workers, clients, senior management, and stakeholders. The ability to patiently explain and share technical or complex ideas and interact comfortably with people is a major employability skill.
- Flexibility/Adaptability: Today’s rapidly changing business atmosphere means that the companies that survive are those that evolve and adapt quickly. That means employees must be able and willing to adapt to evolving job roles and tasks companies go through organizational change.
- Problem Solving: Every company will face challenges in sales, efficiency, expenditure, etc. But if you’re an employee who can resolve challenges through initiative to save time and money for your company – you’re going to be valued greatly. Not to mention you’ll make a prime target for companies looking to recruit you.
