In the earlier features — 6 reasons to thank your clients and How to make clients your allies — I highlighted the importance of client relationship management. Most people, however, pay little or no attention to their relationships with peers, bosses and co-workers, though this might seem an obvious thing to do. Here’s how you can become the ‘Go to’ person and get noticed at work.
Walk around for 15 minutes everyday – Give your colleagues importance – See/ hear your name – Join a committee or task force – Mediate a conflict – Offer a helping hand – Your best performance – Stay updated

The 60 soft skills mentioned can be classified into corporate skills, employability skills and life skills. In some parts of the world like in USA and Australia, soft skills are also known as world skills. readmore…

Soft skills play a vital role for professional success; they help one to excel in the workplace and their importance cannot be denied in this age of information and knowledge. Good soft skills — which are in fact scarce — in the highly competitive corporate world will help you stand out in a milieu of routine job seekers with mediocre skills and talent.
Soft skills “are as important, if not more important, than traditional hard skills to an employer looking to hire — regardless of industry or job type. This could offer a major breakthrough as educators and training providers seek to develop and cluster training courses to fit business and industry needs.” The Workforce Profile defined about 60 “soft skills”, which employers seek. They are applicable to any field of work, according to the study, and are the “personal traits and skills that employers state are the most important when selecting employees for jobs of any type.”
8. Team skills.
9. Eye contact.
Many young professionals are flooded with multiple job offers from various companies, giving them more options to choose from. This is good news for the candidates, but not necessarily for the employers.
Candidates often play it safe by accepting all offers, then choose the most lucrative one of the lot. In the process, they do not inform the companies they have rejected of their decision. Many candidates (especially in the IT industry) just do not show up on the proposed joining date. Obviously, the disappearing act proves inconvenient for the company.
“While you are excited about taking that dream offer, it is your professional responsibility to intimate other employers who also offered you a job,” says Shashank Dixit, CEO of Pune-based Krawler Networks.
It could be the compensation, job profile, location or perhaps all of them, but saying ‘No’ appropriately will make sure the organisation keeps its doors open for you in future.
