These skills are needed in almost every single workplace. Examples: Be on time, work well as part of a team, work independently, communicate effectively, think critically, etc.)
Sometimes these skills are very specific to a profession or workplace, but not always. Examples: Use excel or other computer programs, drive a car, file papers, muck a horse stall, etc.)
Examples: The ability to measure things is a hard skill, which can be used in a lot of different places and jobs (in a home or commercial kitchen, at a science lab, on a carpentry site, in a frameshop, etc.). The ability to manage time is a soft skill, which can help you achieve your goals at home and in the workplace.
