Soft Skills

Soft skills are a fundamental component of training. Although there is not a single definition for soft skills; they are associated with social-emotional skills such as time management, assertiveness, initiative, team work, planning and stress tolerance. The term "soft" comes from skills that are necessary for good professional performance, regardless of basic training. They are thus complementary to the scientific training necessary for the exercise of a job.

These skills have a great importance in the way people approach situations, so they are highly valued by employers. The expression soft skills is used in the same way as the expression “transversal competences”, especially in the labour market.
