On the other hand, soft skills are interpersonal (or people) skills like communication and negotiation skills, empathy, customer service, etc. These skills are much more difficult to define and assess, but yet, they are as important as hard skills. Individuals who do not have soft skills will find difficulty establishing connections with friends, colleagues and the people around them.
