Soft skills are important to succeed in almost any job. In recent years they have become a popular talking point among employers. These skills are not inherent but they can be identified, harnessed, and strengthened. However before trying to improve soft skills one should be self-aware. Self-awareness helps us acknowledge our own strengths and weaknesses. The full day workshop was conducted on mainly these aspects.
