It’s Time To Get Serious about Soft Skills.
In the global LinkedIn report ’Talent Trends 2019’ they introduce four trends transforming our workplaces. At the very top of that list we find soft skills.
Soft skills have always been important, but never as much as today. Soft skills are not soft, they are the crucial skills that transform your expertise and experience into action with successful results. Without them nothing much happens. They are also the skills where AI simply can’t compete. And while the half-life of your expertise is dramatically shrinking, soft skills stay relevant and more important than ever.
Despite the crucial importance of soft skills, the most common ways to measure them haven’t changed over the past decades. We still struggle to accurately access them and Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, wrote that they are hard to tally. There is however one obvious solution – the self-awareness you get from knowing the content of your reputation will give you a full and trustworthy picture also of your soft skills.
When exploring an individual’s reputation, the results are introduced in a report – The Reputation Resumé. It´s the most important document in your professional life.
