Everyone knows that in order to do a job well you must learn a specific set of skills. If you hope to work in the business world, for example, you will have to learn about economics, marketing and communications. However, people sometimes forget that employers don’t look for only technical knowledge; soft skills are just as, and sometimes more, important.
Ability to communicate well with others, leadership, capacity to work with a team and critical thinking are some of the soft skills most appreciated by employers; traits they look for when hiring someone to be part of their team. And if you are considering a career in business administration, those abilities will probably be a requirement for any job you choose.
Over the years I have heard many speeches in my Effective Speaking classes, some leaving an indelible impression. In 2014, a graduating student gave her final “celebratory speech”. This particular student had previously recounted how she had been bullied in elementary, middle, and high school. The bullies knew that her disability made her “different”. They were brutal antagonists.
Think back to when you were a child and the things you learned growing up. You probably learned that when building a tower of blocks, the only way to make it tall was to keep each side even. When coloring with crayons, you learned that there was a happy medium between the child who scribbled all over the page and the one who spent hours making sure to color within all the lines. You may also have learned that when making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, too much jelly was way too sweet and too much peanut butter was just “yucky.”
In a story by Jack London entitled “To Start a Fire,” a lone man lost in the frozen wilderness is desperately trying to light a fire with the few remaining matches he has with him. He knows that if he fails, he will die. As nightfall comes and the winter chill becomes stronger, he seeks shelter under a tree and attempts to start a fire. One by one, each match is lost. One burns his fingers and is dropped; another is extinguished by a random fall of snow from the tree. Despite his desperate need for warmth, the woods and darkness are indifferent to his struggle. Eventually, he loses his last match and darkness ensues. The reader is left to understand that this man did not make it. During his attempt to survive, he never called out for help or expressed rage at the circumstances in which he finds himself. Instead, he went to his death doing everything in his own power to survive, but it wasn’t enough.
