Soft Skills Guide

        posted by , June 01, 2013

Soft Skills are like hurricanes — they often have wimpy names but they pack a punch.

Amongst the worst Atlantic hurricanes in history are Hurricane Fifi, Hurricane Flora and Hurricane Stan. It would be difficult to think up names that are anymore more wimpy for a massive storm. Why not "Hurricane Clint Eastwood" or "Hurricane Stallone"?

"Soft Skills" is also a wimpy name for a collection of powerful professional skills. Skills like leadership, negotiating, public speaking and influencing are prized professional skills that are notoriously difficult to master.

Each time you improve your soft skills good things start to happen. Even modest improvements in soft skills can improve your professional and personal prospects.

The following list of professional tools may help you to improve your critical soft skills.
