Why are Soft
Skills Important?
By Sanjeev Datta
Soft skills are the ones that help you build
strong and better relationships with people
around you. It is a combination of skills like
social skills, communication skills,
emotional intelligence, body language,
networking skills, different personality
traits, etc. You need hard skills to get
yourself a job but you need soft skills to see
yourself progressing and getting promoted
because of your attitude and flexibility in
working.
INTRODUCTION
97% of employers surveyed
said that soft skills are as
important or even more
important than hard skills.
Some Stats
According to research about new
employees that didn't meet
expectations during the first 18
months on the job, 23% of them failed
due to low emotional intelligence i.e.
one of the soft skills.
89% fail because of a lack of
soft skills, such as
professionalism or the ability
to get along with others.
Importance of Soft
Skills for Kids
Soft skills are required to be
taught to kids considering
their future self would be
dependent on how well the
kid has succeeded in those
skills. The soft skills of
determination, resilience, and
flexibility are critical for
success in life and the sooner a
person learns to use the skills,
the better.
With the help of developed soft
skills, the kid will be able to
communicate with others
clearly, understand the
importance of accountability,
and also begin to know and gain
a sense of empathy or in general,
emotional intelligence.
Soft skills for kids are
important for their growth,
development, and future
employment opportunities.

Importance of Soft
Skills for Career
Development
Soft skills help you deal with
collaboration, communication,
problem-solving skills, and
other emotional and cognitive
capabilities to work in multi-
member groups and attain
success in whatever project you
are assigned as a group.
Enhancing your time
management skill can help
you be more realistic about
your capabilities and
prioritize your workload to
ensure that you consistently
meet deadlines.
Taking responsibility will help
you earn the trust and respect
of your colleagues and that
stays with you in the long run.
When things don’t go to plan,
being clear about the part you
played and accepting your
mistake can lead you to learn
something important from the
whole experience.
Soft skills also make you gain
EQ, which helps in your
personal life. Hence, while
keeping your personal
growth consistently
increasing, soft skills help in
career development as well.
