It Pays to Be Human: communicate clearly, take initiative, problem-solve, get along with people

From WSJ:

It Pays to Be Human - The job market’s most sought-after skills can be tough to spot on a résumé. Companies across the U.S. say it is becoming increasingly difficult to find applicants who can communicate clearly, take initiative, problem-solve and get along with co-workers. Those traits, called soft skills, can make the difference between a standout employee and one who just gets by.

"Soft skills" are needed in medicine too. It is always great to be human. After all, we can't be anything else.

The top 10 in-demand soft skills are listed by LinkedIn here: https://business.linkedin.com/talent-solutions/blog/trends-and-research/2016/most-indemand-soft-skills
