“Soft Skills”

There was a paid content article in the New Zealand Sunday Star Times today, Sunday 1st December,  about the importance of communication for accountants. I couldn’t agree more with the contents, it’s vital, and not just for accountants but anyone in business to be able to communicate clearly and confidently. However, I don’t agree with the term ‘soft skills’. We are talking about vital human skills, these skills aren’t ‘soft’, they’re seriously important. With so many robotic and automated features taking over so many aspects of business and day to day jobs, it is paramount to have the best, most open, honest, confident, clear communication skill set you can to actually remain in business or your job. That’s it.
