Soft skills are the same as human skills. The terms are interchangeable. When people talk about soft skills, they are referring to an individual’s ability to relate and communicate with others. Examples of soft skills are empathy, compassion, adaptability, resilience, persuasiveness, communication, teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, time management, critical thinking, decision-making, and stress management; and that’s just to name a few. As you can see, it’s a broad term that covers many human qualities that are hard to quantify but most people are aware of.
People with strong soft skills are able to connect with colleagues and customers in a meaningful way. This ability, in turn, enables them to foster a positive workplace, improve their performance, and build a successful career.
Yes, you can build, improve, and enhance your abilities through soft skills courses. One of the challenges of learning is to be totally honest with yourself. Attending an instructor-led course enables you to build your self-awareness through feedback from your instructor and your peers. Online courses in soft skills also present you with a safe space to learn and practice so you can make mistakes in a controlled environment and then start using your enhanced abilities for real in your job.

During an interview, employers will look for key skills that indicate that the prospective employee will stay and develop within the organization. They’ll also look for the ability to work with others and not disrupt a team, as well as the capacity to receive feedback and respond accordingly. The right attitude towards deadlines and time management matters too. Plus, they’ll be keen to see how committed you are to learning and developing your industry knowledge.

You need to ensure the skills you highlight on your resumé are relevant to the job for which you’re applying. Check out the job description and make a list of the qualities they are looking for. It’s always better to show your soft skills through examples, rather than just state you have those qualities. So, if you can think of occasions in your background - be that jobs, positions, projects, activities, or volunteer work - where you’ve applied your skills, make sure you include it in your resumé.
Yes, the vast majority of our soft skills courses are online. They are instructor-led and follow a set schedule of interactive online sessions where you will learn, practice, and discuss the course topics with the trainer and your peers. You will also be expected to do some work outside of the taught sessions, often in preparation for the next class ahead.
