Soft skills are essential irrespective of the level of management – entry, middle and top level management. People rise in organizations due to hard skills but fall due to lack of soft skills.

We hear a lot about communication, leadership, problem solving, and so many other soft skills. And for good reason. Those skills are among the most in-demand by many employers.
However, there are seven other soft skills that, while not discussed as often as their popular counterparts, make all the difference. These underrated skills set candidates apart from other graduates, applicants and careerists.
