Soft skills matter more than ever. In this age of automation, machines are becoming more efficient doing the mundane tasks. We are then left to handle the ever more important human part. In the 2018 Workplace Learning Report published by LinkedIn, it mentioned that the #1 priority for talent development in 2018 is training for soft skills. Individuals with excellent soft skills and sound technical skills will be hard to replace in this new economy. Hone your soft skills and you’ll be highly sought after. There’s no replacing empathy, compassion, love, care, humor, being present, listening, interacting (at least for now).
