    developing the soft skills


    Could you please paraphrase the expression "the soft skills" in this context?

    Second. Are you concentrating on what you’re doing instead of how you’re doing it? When you begin your career, visible demonstration of your talent is crucial. It’s important to exemplify the core, hard skills you’re hired for whether it’s graphic design, project management or programming.
    Getting to the next level, though, requires considering the behaviours you use. It is now more about developing the soft skills.
    So, if you’re already exceeding metrics set by your manager, as a sales quota, you now need to highlight you’re accomplishing this through collaboration and strategic thinking. These indicate your increased level of ability, readiness and leadership.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: developing the soft skills

    Soft skills are "people" skills. Commnications, relating to people, team skills, etc.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
