Need help with tag suggestions?

Several soft skill lists are available on the internet. I am sharing a crated list that includes some elegant suggestions from @st3939 (Diverse Teams, Virtual Communication) and a very interesting one that I picked from @Chuks’s self-assessment - Patience. A soft skill that is extremely important in challenging STEM fields!

In some cases, you may want to use both the top level tag as well as the finer granularity one. And in other cases, the finer granularity one is adequate stand-alone.

I will keep adding to this list. Everyone is welcome to add suggestions!
