How strong are your soft skills?

Soft skills are personal attributes that enable you to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. Communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving, and adaptability are just some of the soft skills employers value. Create a list of your five strongest soft skills. Then identify three additional soft skills you could work on improving.

Why do this?
Strong soft skills create an excellent foundation for success—they are the perfect complement for the more technical skills you bring to your work.
LinkedIn’s 2019 Global Talent Trends Report indicates that 92% of employers believe soft skills are at least as important as hard skills in successful job performance. Skills such as creativity, persuasion, collaboration, adaptability, and time management—in combination with the hard skills needed to do your job—create synergy that will add value for you and your employer.
