Hard & Soft Skills – Why You Need Both
The Beauty of Balance
Hard skills are the technical knowledge, industry expertise, and knowledge that you bring to the job. They enable you to stay several steps ahead of what the company’s expectations. They are the foundation that propels you to the next level. Soft skills are your ability to get along with others, to communicate effectively, to blend in with company culture, and to be an efficient employee. These attributes are vital for creating your forward positioning. The most technically qualified candidate is not necessarily the one who gets hired. You may know the melody but without soft skills, you sing off key. Truly successful individual are ambidextrous, they have both hard and soft skills. Think of this as left brain/right brain – you’re only complete if you have both.
