The soft skills debate

by Robin on December 3, 2012

I often wonder and worry about terminology.  I don’t think that training departments make life too easy for themselves by some of the terminology that they use.  In fact, it can be downright tricky to convince people to sign up to development initiatives when the vocabulary used to describe them seems woolly, imprecise or simply unattractive.  For me, the term soft skills fits all these characteristics.  You can join in the debate here – my latest blog post on training zone where the issue of soft skills has been widely discussed throughout November.  I look forward to reading your thoughts.
