Soft skills training is being highly prioritized and recognized today by corporate institutes as being essential to relationships. Often we are asked the question, “What are soft skills?” Soft skills are personal characteristics that relate to a person’s capability to interact effectually with others. Simply put, it is all about empathy.
Mostly people are offering the skill oriented training like communication, aptitude, interviewing, presentation, etc. whereas our graduates are lacking other soft skills like attitude, problem solving, people skills, etc. while they join in Industry. You can also impart behavioral training, attitudinal training, training on building confidence, etc. through exercises, games, case studies, role plays and simulation. The collegiate training’s are either theoretical or conceptual, i.e. telling what is what, which will give only knowledge base whereas the industry demands tough people to face challenges and resolve crisis.
