Abstract: The detailed study of the Soft skills reveals the various hues in it. This vastness of the subject makes it necessary to limit it to some extent and concentrate on particularly two Soft skills which are considered to be the major ones. This research study will help in justifying relevance and importance of Verbal and Non verbal (Soft) skills in the professional life. newlineThe research focuses on two soft skills. newline1. Verbal/ Oral skills The way one communicates plays a vital role in every person s success and well being in the society. As Herbert Simon puts it, Without communication there can be no organization, for there is no possibility then of the group influencing newlinethe behavior of the individual. Communication is the ingredient that makes organization possible. In this fast changing world, every organization is becoming more and more sophisticated. So, communication being an integral part of the process of change needs to be given due recognition, the realization about which needs to be brought. newlineAlthough communication is a necessary condition of human existence and social organizations still many times the required importance is not given to it. So, the study concentrates on it. newline2. Non-verbal skills/Body Language Body Language plays a very important role conveying exact views of the person. In the present, the importance of Body Language has been widely recognized. According to Birdwhistell, a pioneer in the field of Non-verbal communication, more human communication took place by the use of gestures, postures, position and distance than by any other way . As it has been observed that the Communication skills and Body Language play a major role in the Soft Skills, the focus of study of the researcher is on these two. They are the basic and important newlineskills for all, especially for the students of all levels irrespective of to which area they belong whether rural or urban. newline newline
