Soft Skills Programs

Rome Business School offers a range of self-growth programs to young graduates and business professionals, to give them the opportunity to develop and hone their personal soft skills, necessary for self and professional growth!

A soft skill is a personal attribute that supports situational awareness and enhances an individual’s ability to get a job done. The term soft skills is often used as a synonym for people skills or emotional intelligence. Unlike hard skills, which describe a person’s technical ability to perform a specifically-defined task, soft skills are broadly applicable across job titles and industries. It’s often said that while hard skills might get someone an interview, soft skills will help that person get (and keep) the job.

The secret key to a well-managed workplace and progressive career path, Soft Skills are highly demanded personal attributes that can affect relationships, communication, and interaction with others, therefore playing a pivotal role in achieving success in business and ensuring effective leadership in today’s technologically advanced society. 

Soft Skills are vital in implementing the workflow and techniques usually associated with technology and innovation, providing competence in several aspects, such as conflict management, problem solving, public speaking, time, stress and self-management, to mention just a few.
