Adaptability does stand out among all the soft skills. While technical skills were driving factors during the previous generation job, soft skills are the key for the current corporate scenario. The last few decades have seen jobs shifting from one style to another very rapidly, in fact paving way for newer options too. The change has been so rapid that the skill sets (especially technical skill sets) you have today might even be redundant after a few years.
Adaptability keeps you relevant to your job
It is also assumed that 85% of the jobs that are going to be there after 10 years are not even conceptualized yet. In such a scenario, adaptability becomes all the more important; how can you stay relevant is essential.
Adaptability is important not only to accustom yourself to the new jobs that are going to evolve, but also to attune to the changing work styles, and changing personalities.
