Soft skills refer to a combination of people and communication skills, personality traits, attitudes, career preferences and social and emotional intelligence. Individuals undertake professional training to enhance these skills and navigate the professional environment to achieve personal and business goals. The training is offered through offline and web-based platforms and can aid in improving customer service, employee retention, increasing sales and job satisfaction and overall productivity of the individual.
