The 6st important soft skill of this century is judgment & decision making.
We are increasingly confronted with a complex and changing environment. The ability to judge and make decisions is becoming essential, combining critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to arbitrate between several options.
If decision-making is a strategic skill, it must be accompanied by 2 attributes: the ability to get teams to accept and embark and to transform the decision into action.
These skills are not necessarily innate, they are worked on, based on proven methodologies and developing self-confidence.
