What is Personality?

Shri Harsh explained “Personality is an in-depth concept of beyond perception and beyond thought. It’s not about physical grooming; it is all about analytical ability or making the creative problem solving ability which defines your personality.”

Soft skills and Hard skills

Shri Harsh underlined that soft skill is the spine of the survival in the corporate world. “In simple words, soft skills mean how you showcase what you know. While hard skills indicate what you know,” he said.
