“You don’t build a business, you build people, then people build the business.”

Well-rounded, highly-developed soft skills can be invaluable to business success but what are soft skills and why are they important?

Soft skills are an essential part of finding, attracting, and retaining clients. Highly-developed presentation skills, networking abilities, and etiquette awareness can help you win new clients and gain more work from existing clients. Honing your abilities to resolve conflicts, solve problems, and provide excellent customer service can lead to stronger relationships with colleagues, vendors, and other professional contacts. Ultimately, strong soft skills can help you gain confidence—an invaluable trait in the business world.

LinkedIn carried out a study in early 2018 across 100 metropolitan cities in the United States and discovered a shortage of 1.4 million people with communication skills. Since soft skills, such as communication, can lead to the prosperity of your organization, training your workforce in these vital abilities makes sense.

By investing in soft skills training for your workforce, you’ll see many benefits including:

Effective communication: Your employees will be able to communicate more effectively with each other and with your clients or customers. It will equip them with the skills to express themselves with more clarity, listen more effectively and handle complex situations.

Stronger leadership: Your employees will be able to delegate, provide feedback, accept feedback, take responsibility, and motivate themselves and others to reach their targets in a better way.

Improved problem solving: Your employees will be proactive when it comes to recognizing problems and potential barriers to projects, tasks, and goals. It will also equip them to think of ways to improve certain processes and make daily working more effective.

Enhanced creative and critical thinking: Providing soft skills training enables your employees to “think out of the box” both creatively and critically. Using these skills, they will be able to weigh up their options, take informed decisions, making them more likely to achieve the desired results.

Better teamwork, efficiency, and productivity: Soft skills empower your employees to collaborate and work together in order to collectively meet company goals and objectives. In turn, this leads to improved efficiency and heightened productivity.
