Interpersonal relationships fail and businesses fail because of poor problem solving. Everybody can benefit from having good problem solving skills as we all encounter problems on a daily basis.

2. CRITICAL THINKING

Critical thinking means making a clear judgement. During the process of critical thinking, ideas should be well reasoned out. The list of core critical thinking skills includes observation, interpretation, analysis, inference, evaluation, explanation and metacognition.

3. CREATIVITY

It is a way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective that suggests unorthodox solutions (which may look unsettling at first). It is important to set aside plenty of time for brainstorming and to keep exploring even when you think you’ve found a good idea. The first idea is seldom the best.

4. PEOPLE MANAGEMENT

Simply put, some people are easy to manage and others are hard.  And “hard” takes many forms.  People management, also known as human resource management (HRM) encompasses the tasks of recruitment, management, and providing ongoing support and direction for the employees of an organization. 

5. COORDINATION 

Skills of coordinating include the capacity to organise one’s own work and to link it with the overall workflow. Coordinating includes attending to several activities simultaneously, prioritizing and switching tasks as necessary. It includes interweaving your work programme with the work streams of others. And it includes dealing with unexpected crises, obstacles or interruptions, then efficiently getting the work back on track, preventing further issues to rise. 

6. EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Emotional intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is the capacity of individuals to recognize their own and other people’s emotions to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately; to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior and to manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one’s goal(s).

7. JUDGEMENT AND  DECISION MAKING

Humans are not perfect decision makers. We depart from perfection or rationality in systematic and predictable ways. The understanding of these systematic and predictable departures is core to the field of judgment and decision making. By understanding these limitations we can also identify strategies for making better and more effective decisions.

8. SERVICE ORIENTATION

Service orientation, a.k.a personality traits and a predisposition to be helpful, thoughtful, considerate and cooperative, can impact your company’s reputation for customer service – an important factor for success in the hospitality industry. It is defined as “a willingness to treat co-workers and clients with courtesy, consideration, and tact” combined with the ability to perceive a customer’s needs and communicate effectively .

9. NEGOTIATION

Negotiation is a method by which people settle differences. It is a process by which compromise or agreement is reached while avoiding argument and dispute. However, general negotiation skills can be learned and applied in a wide range of activities.  Negotiation skills can be of great benefit in resolving any differences that arise between you and others. The point of negotiation is to try to reach agreements without causing future barriers to communication.

10. COGNITIVE FLEXIBILITY

Cognitive flexibility has been described as the mental ability to switch between thinking about two different concepts and to think about multiple concepts simultaneously. Cognitive flexibility has been more broadly described as the ability to adjust one’s thinking from old situations to new situations as well as the ability to overcome responses or thinking that have become habitual and adapt to new situations.
