Soft skills complement the hard skillsMany of us think that it is completely okay to not be so proficient in soft skills if one is an expert in hard skills, which is clearly orthodox and a laid back opinion. It's high time we should accept that soft skills are as important as hard skills and encourage everyone to develop them. These skills need to be inculcated in people since their childhood. Soft skills not only enhance the appeal of hard skills but also acts as a protective layer to hard skills and prevent them from rusting. Its importance is not merely limited to protecting and enhancing hard skills, it actually complements them.
After a period of time, when the basic learning phase ends, each one of us needs to display our soft skills along with the hard skills. Be it a studious student, a hard-working employee or a well-educated politician, without soft skills, none can progress. One or all of them may face may difficulties in expressing or presenting their views and opinions. They may face problems working or leading a group. Eventually, in life, people have to stop walking alone. They need to guide and be guided by others, directly or indirectly. That's where hard skills need to shake hands with soft skills.
It is also important to be noted that the development and inculcation of soft skills don't mean eliminating one's introvert nature to become an extrovert. It's more like being vigil when one is driving a car on the road and being one's true self while relaxing at home.
