Terra Soft Skills

Soft skills are personal attributes that describe an individual’s ability to interact with others. Soft skills, also known as people skills, complement hard skills to enhance an individual’s relationships, job performance and career prospects. It’s often said that hard skills will get you an interview but you need soft skills to get — and keep — the job.

Unlike hard skills, which comprise a person’s technical skill set and ability to perform  certain functional tasks, soft skills are interpersonal and broadly applicable across job titles and industries. Many soft skills are tied to an individuals’ personalities rather than any formal training, and are  thus considered more difficult to develop than hard skills.
