Soft Skills….who should be responsible for teaching?

That’s a nice list, isn’t it? All great things!

When you think of soft skills…what comes to mind?  I think that they are either a personality trait or something that is fostered and taught.  Ahhhh but there’s the quandary.
Who’s responsibility is it to actually teach these things?

Parents? Teachers? Clergy? Bosses?

I can honestly say, I think a lot of it should come from the parents. Children learn by example. They mimic the world they are brought up in…no matter how good or how bad.  They can follow it or reject it altogether too.

For me: high school taught me the interpersonal, the flexibility was something I was born with, but the attitude was the biggest change for me. I used to have a crappy one!  But my last boss (who was awesome) taught me a LOT and he believed in me and respected me. He let me spread my wings and pitch in my ideas.  So my attitude changed drastically thanks to him.

How about your own experiences? Who do you think should teach these things? The modern workforce is clamoring for folks with these abilities…they are not being taught…so who should be doing it?
