Soft skills have become hard skills
We hear it from organizations like A great place to work, we hear it from the recruitment industry – actually we hear it from everywhere today, how soft skills have become the hard skills – skills that really matter.
Soft skills like passion, ambition, your ability to inspire, your entrepreneurial mind and your trustworthiness determine your success at work, your career and how you succeed as a consultant, employee or entrepreneur. It determines whom your customers will listen to and whom they will trust. Can anything be more profitable to analyze than this?
Soft skills are a decisive factor, but my great surprise they are something we don´t analyze in a proper way. These are the factors that create your professional reputation together with your perceived expertise and experiences. Remember that your professional reputation is not what you say about yourself, it is what others say about you. The truth is always in the eye of the beholder.
