Why are personal skills particularly interesting?

Personal skills are the characteristics that influence how you tackle and perform your work in daily life and in collaboration with others. And that is not depending of, whetever you are is analytical, independent, curious, detail-oriented, introverted, etc.

This means that it is seldom enough to use the professional competences to solve a task satisfactorily - in most cases it is necessary to use the personal skills because you manage your professional competences with your personality.

The truly inspiring, dedicated and talented employee always take advantage on their own personal skills. In other words seen through the glasses of a company , it is particularly interesting to have the personal skills put into play in the company - but it is also in the interest for the individual employee.

At the same time, there should be considerable influence for the individual employee to choose to which extent the personal skills should be used in a organization.

One final point is that there is no clear distinction between professional and personal skills, because the different professions define what are professional skills.

Personal skills is considered to be a prerequisite for getting value out of practical and theoretical competence
