Personality Development and Soft Skills

Personality Development and Soft Skills

by Barun Mitra




Personality Development and Soft Skills is designed to serve as a textbook that addresses the requirements of students of any discipline who are on the threshold of starting their careers. The book would prove equally beneficial to young managers who have already had a taste of corporate life.

The book aims to provide crucial insights into various facets of developing one's personality, as well as improve written, verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Full attention is paid to specific needs such as writing of effective CVs, participation in group discussions, and tackling job interviews. Special emphasis is also laid on honing one's public speaking and speed reading skills. The book also provides inputs on avoiding common mistakes of speech and behaviour.

By providing a rich array of case studies, personality improvement tests, and carefully developed classroom based exercises, the book attempts to provide the reader with hands-on experience to cope with the demands of the world of business.
