Description:

This discussion is meant to discuss with other actuarial professionals the importance of soft skills in developing ourselves as we deliver our professional promise.

Soft skills are a combination of people skills, social skills, communication, character and personality traits, attitudes, mindsets, career attributes, social intelligence, contextual intelligence and emotional intelligence quotients, among others, that enable people to navigate their environment, work well with others, perform well, and achieve their goals with complementing hard skills. Soft skills are defined by the Collins Dictionary as “Desirable qualities for certain forms of employment that do not depend on acquired knowledge. They include common sense, the ability to deal with people, and a positive flexible attitude.”

Soft skills are, therefore, at the heart of lifelong learning and are considered important elements of Continuous Professional Development by many professionals and business leaders as we deliver on our professional promise. It’s a lifelong journey.

The expected outcome is to raise awareness among actuarial professionals and encourage ourselves to seek opportunities to develop our soft skills as we progress with our professional careers.
