Training is essential for organizations to be successful. The focus is usually on the hard skills related to the business or organization. This can be as a result of technology, new products, or changing requirements.
Soft skills such as communications, change management, team building and other personal development training are sometimes thought of as unnecessary. Consider the investment you have in the hard skills. While they are essential, they are only as good as the ability of your employees to communicate and work together.
This is like buying an expensive piece of machinery and not maintaining it. The functionality will decrease over time and affect your organization. Soft skills ensure that employees have the tools to obtain the most value from your training investment.
