Soft skills such as communication, flexibility, tolerance and patience are crucial in a professional life. I have met many very bright PhD graduates who are academically brilliant but lack a pragmatic approach to professional and commercial situations. Furthermore, I rate the skill of being able to persuade fellow workers very highly, as it underpins good leadership. I specifically mean to persuade with knowledge and a clear argument, as opposed to coerce, which is often misconstrued as persuasion.”
