  3. 3. 3 INTRODUCTION Soft skills are personal attributes that enhance an individual's interactions, career prospects and job performance. Unlike hard skills, which tend to be specific to a certain type of task or activity, soft skills are broadly applicable across job titles.Soft skills is a catch-all term referring to various behaviors that help people work and socialize well with others. In short, they are the good manners and personality traits needed to get along with others and build positive relationships. Unlike hard skills, which include a person's technical skill set and ability to perform certain functional tasks, soft skills are broadly applicable across job titles and industries. It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get and keep the job. Soft skills is a term often associated with a person's EQ (Emotional Intelligence Quotient) the cluster of personality traits, social graces, communication language,personal habits, interpersonal skills, managing people, leadership, etc. that characterize relationships with other people. Soft skills contrast to hard skills, which are generally easily quantifiable and measurable (e.g. software knowledge, basic plumbing skills). A person's soft skill EQ is an important part of their individual contribution to the success of an organization. Particularly those organizations dealing with customers face-to-face are generally more successful, if they train their staff to use these skills. Screening or training for personal habits or traits such as dependability and conscientiousness can yield significant return on investment for an organization. For this reason, soft skills are increasingly sought out by employers in addition to standard qualifications.

However, it can also be transformed if a conscious decision is made to embrace a more positive mindset. It is important to understand that we can only perform up to our belief system and never beyond it. In order to perform to our fullest potential we need to understand our interferences or barriers that prevent us from doing so. Hence any development is impeded if our belief structure is not changed. Personality development courses that ignore the difficult component of shifting mindsets will lack the deep impact that is necessary for change to sustain. 3. SALES AND MARKETING TRAINING Although the definition of a sale is simple enough, the process of turning a prospect into a customer can be very complex process one needs to master.

CUSTOMER SERVICE Today how our organization delivers our products and services are as important as what they are. Competing goods and services don’t differ greatly from each other, so customers will choose where to shop based on the service they get. Before they consider spending any money, customers will already know whether they trust us and like us. They will have judged what we look like, what we sound like and how responsive we are. The only way to create customer satisfaction is to under promise and over deliver. It is the internal customers of an organisation that strive to provide satisfaction to their external customers.

By being better coaches and trainers to their team, the overall work atmosphere would become positive, thereby helping organizations greatly. Though the impact of high motivation is well known, it has been found that a vast portion of the capabilities of employees in an organization is severely underutilized. If businesses or individuals want greater success, then the answer resides within the ability to improve motivation, improve the use of energy and to improve talent. Yet, almost every time, the emphasis is on the technical or the hard skills with little or no focus on training on motivation or the soft skills. 9.

Don’t we remember a good teacher from our school or college days even after so many years, the same applies to the corporate training world, all we need to have the required delivery skills to leave an impact on our participants to remember. However this does not happen, most people go through different training programs and when it comes to deliver one, they simply copy what was used on them and end up giving a lecture, since training is different from lecturing. A important skill a trainer must aquire is distinction – which can only be acquired through practice and persistence.
