Soft Skills is a term often associated with a person's "EQ" (Emotional Intelligence Quotient), the cluster of personality traits, social graces, communication, language, personal habits, interpersonal skills, managing people, leadership, etc. that characterize relationships with other people. Soft skills contrast to hard skills, which are generally easily quantifiable and measurable.
In this cosmopolitan world we are in a mad race to achieve professional accomplishments. Industries are flourishing and they are doing aggressive business with the greater world. Our students happen to be a part of this mad race and we help prepare them to combat with all the challenges in their life. To meet the requirements of this globalised world every student should have a strong command in English and should be adept in Soft Skills along with hard skill. Attitude and positive energy is what the industry needs which is impossible without proper soft skills training.
