As Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage.” You are always on show and your soft skills define you. To have the self-confidence to know you are in control and doing the right thing gives you the opportunity to showcase your true authenticity and knowledge. Competitors may have the same technical knowledge; you can have that additional competitive edge, the ‘X’ factor.
