How Good Are Your Soft Skills?

In this Self-Assessment Soft Skills article, you can find out how good you are at a soft skill. Jack Ma, the founder of the £30bn company Alibaba said that with the advancement of AI, soft skills set us aside.

We have created simple self-assessments that help you to understand your strengths and your weaknesses by evaluating a specific soft skill. By completing one, or all of these soft skills audits, you will know what to use more. Moreover, you will know where your strengths lie, and what to work on, your weaknesses.

How Each Self-Assessment Works

Each soft skill has a separate self-assessment. Each assessment contains 7-10 questions, which should take about 4 minutes. The pass mark for each assessment is 80%. Do not be concerned by the pass mark because it is more important that you are honest with yourself.

The Questions Asked

In the assessment, you will be asked a question based on an essential quality. We have created a unique set of competency frameworks. A page for each soft skill. Within each competency framework, we have selected 7 essential qualities for that framework. For example, for the Time Management competency framework, one of the essential qualities is being able to capture what tasks are needed to be done. For Negotiation Skills seeking common ground is an essential quality. Each soft skill has 7 carefully selected essential qualities.
