23 different approaches to work

A recently published book lays out and explains soft skills

Self-development at work, beginning with one’s individual skills – which, however, need to well understood and properly harnessed, in the awareness that everyone has particular soft skills that allow them to achieve unlooked-for results. With a team of collaborators, Gian Carlo Cocco – who has over ten years’ experience in the corporate world – explores these concepts, outlining features and uses of a capital that everyone possesses: 23 soft skill strategiche. Per valorizzare il capitale professionale (23 strategic soft skills. Enhancing professional capital) is the result of his work.

The book – of about 200 pages – starts by clarifying the basic concepts, such as the idea that human capital (also termed professional capital) comprises both acquired knowledge and, above all, personal attributes that should be exploited. Cocco then discusses soft skills in more detail, that is, the mental resources and practical attitudes that we can apply to different activities (negotiation, decision-making, conflict management, etc.) and that lead us to obtain the results we want. Soft skills can be empirically verified by observing simulated activities online and in person, which recreate real situations.
As such, the book identifies – as per its title – 23 soft skills: each comes with its own definition, a description on how to put it into practice, how to discern it in others, and how to develop it. Thus, we go from analytical to organisational, from communication to training, from negotiation and stress-management skills to those related to decision-making, long-term vision, flexibility, openness to innovation and much more.

This books seeks to be an important tool for workers, who would then able to become aware of, and enhance, not only their own individual value but also that of colleagues, collaborators and people who operate with each other in synergy. A tool also useful to young people, to help them identify and develop a capital they yet have to fully express, and to facilitate their entry into the work sphere.

On top of all this, these 23 soft skills also illustrate a multifaceted corporate culture, always in transformation, aware and widespread, the knowledge of which can only benefit those, whether entrepreneurs or managers, whose role is to oversee a production organisation.
