The soft skills necessary to be successful change as the workplace evolves, and certainly as we embrace new technologies and methodologies. You can’t rest on your laurels and expect to rise to the top. Learning new skills and ways of doing things can help you remain at the top of any candidate pool. But, what are these new soft skills you need to learn?
New Soft Skills for the Modern Workplace
As you’ll see in this infographic from Bay Leino Learning, most of the new soft skills you need to learn are simply the evolution of the skills employers have always sought. Communication, time management, and decision making lead the way. These skills evolve by adapting to the technology that facilitates modern business. For instance, communication is no longer just about face-to-face or telephone skills. New communication skills might involve fluency in webinars, online presentations, and Skype meetings.
Take a look. Then get a handle on just how traditional soft skills are evolving.
After all, learning these “new” soft skills can keep you in the game and make you an attractive candidate for any position.
