Developing Soft Skills

$7.00

The Developing Soft Skills IQ Matrix explores the importance of spending time, energy and effort on developing key critical soft skills that are currently in demand. It is said that hard skills will often get you the job, but soft skills will help you keep it long-term. However, these days because technology and workplace environments are changing so rapidly, a University degree or certificate is often not enough. On-the-job experience is required. And as such, companies are now more than ever before looking to hire people with the right set of soft skills that will naturally complement the hard skills they will learn on the job.

Who is this map for?

  • Anyone wanting to develop key skills to advance their career.
  • Anyone who wants to become indispensable to his/her company.
  • Anyone who is interested in improving key life skill areas.
