When you factor in soft skills as an integral part of hiring decisions, you are doing your team a favor.
The last thing your team needs is a new team member whose hard skills are valuable but disrupt team collaboration.
They may seem likable at first, especially during the interview process, but slowly starts to show their true self upon hiring.
It doesn’t matter how the quality of hard skills the person brings to the team if, on the other hand, brings the quality of teamwork down.
If soft skills can make or break your teamwork, it can also make or break your project.
