“We have a powerful potential in our youth, and we must have the courage to change old ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.”
– Mary McLeod Bethune
In our colleges we are more busy generating more results and less inspirations, because of which majority of students after completing graduation/postgraduation are directionless. Our future leaders are educated but without a clue as to why they have no idea what should they do with their lives.
Studies have proven that Hard skills (Technical Skills) that a student learns at the school and the professional colleges contributes only 15% to his/her professional success and the staggering 85% depends upon the ability of the person to use his/her soft skills, unfortunately which we fail to develop due to the lack of proper education in this field.
Hard Vs Soft Skills
Skills can be classified into two areas—”Hard” skills like technical knowhow, aggressiveness, follow-through and speed. Examples include machine operation, computer protocols, safety standards, financial procedures and sales administration. These skills are typically easy to observe, quantify and measure. On the contrary “Soft” skills have to do with how people relate to each other like creativity, Leadership, Interpersonal, listening, communication and team skills.
We all have both hard and soft skills within us, which are a part of our personality and emotional make-up.
Hard skills are specific and can be easily taught, such as being able to read or type a letter. They represent the minimum skills necessary to do a job and are the first screen employers use to weed out applicants who are obviously not qualified for the position at hand. On the other hand Soft skills are more elusive and intangible. An example might be a bedside manner, a pleasant voice or a cooperative spirit. Leadership, creativity and the ability to teach and learn are all considered soft skills and they are really the core of what an employer is looking for in a job applicant.
It is proven that technical knowledge alone is of no use if a person is not good at interpersonal, communication, Time management skills (Soft Skills) etc. Due to the tight schedule or lacuna in our education system we pay less or no attention helping students build these soft skills.
What do we do?
We come into picture here by offering various specially designed sessions and workshops for students to develop these soft skills so that they have a total competitive edge over others in their future professional career.
