Skills and training

 

The importance of soft skills training


Personal traits go a long way in determining the success rate for an individual in a fast paced and thoroughly competitive corporate environment. The only way to taste success is to possess the soft skills that are ever so important in organisations today.



Unlike technical skills that tend to be specific to a particular kind of activity or task, soft skills are not specific but are broadly applicable.



Soft skills if categorised into personal attributes would comprise: common sense, time-management, optimism, responsibility, sense of humour, integrity and motivation.  If categorised into interpersonal abilities would comprise: leadership, communication, empathy, good manners, sociability, etc.Most people have this misconception that only technical skills are the requirement, they miss out on the fact that technical skills are not enough by themselves to boost a person's career growth.

 

We have teamed up with Truro & Penwith College to offer our candidates a resource for skills training to aid their career progression.
