The work of a Team Leader consists not only in supervising tasks 🙂 We develop the skills of our employees during training. This time, it was interpersonal communication.
Why is it so important to improve soft skills, especially for Team Leaders?
Skills such as listening, collaborating with others, presenting ideas, and communicating with others in a project are all highly valued in the modern workplace. Strong soft skills ensure an effective, productive, and healthy work environment, all vital attributes for organizations in an increasingly competitive world.
It is said that soft skills are harder to learn. Hard skills, these technical, are much easier to learn and use. Soft skills are more challenging to develop, since they have little to do with knowledge or expertise, but are closely linked with a person’s character. It takes conscious effort, ongoing practice, and a commitment to self-development to improve your soft skills. Hard skills may look impressive on your CV, but the soft skills are what will set you apart from the many candidates who have similar expertise to you. More about soft skills importance you can read, for example in the Oxbridge Academy article.
