Soft skills, also known as common skills or core skills, are skills applicable to all professions. These include critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, professional writing, teamwork, digital literacy, leadership, professional attitude, work ethic, career management and intercultural fluency.
Some employers say that soft skills are either as important or more important than hard skills and that more than half of new employees that fail within 18 months do so because they lack soft skills.

Soft Skills For Workers in 2022
- Critical thinking skills
Critical thinking is the ability to think clearly and rationally, understanding the logical connection between ideas.
The skills that we need in order to be able to think critically are varied and include observation, analysis, interpretation, reflection, evaluation, inference, explanation, problem solving, and decision making.
- Communication skills
Being able to communicate effectively is perhaps the most important of all life skills. It is what enables us to pass information to other people, and to understand what is said to us.
Good communication skills can improve the way that you operate through life, smoothing your way in your relationships with others.
Poor communication skills, on the other hand, can sour relationships from business to personal, and make your life significantly harder.
- Teamwork skills
Teamwork skills are the qualities and abilities that allow you to work well with others during conversations, projects, meetings or other collaborations. Having teamwork skills is dependent on your ability to communicate well, actively listen and be responsible and honest.
Teamwork skills are vital to employers, as teams are a basic organizational unit within many companies.
- Digital fluency
Digital Fluency is the ability to discover, evaluate, and use information and technology effectively and ethically.
It involves the lifelong pursuit and development of knowledge, skills, attitudes, conceptual understandings, confidence, and persistence that evolves with training, experience, and experimentation with digital and information resources
Self-leadership is when someone is having a developed sense of who they are, what they can do and where they are going. Coupled with this is the ability to influence communication, emotions, and behaviors.
Self-leadership is the Critical Success Factor for individual and organizational success.
