Softskills is the bridge to Hardskills (in the case of basketball hardskills as a player, your ability to perform your skill set on the court). Softskills relates to you as a person, your character, your ability to build rapport, and convey messages with whoever you are communicating with. With respect to basketball and my application of soft skills, I wish to impart beneficial knowledge which can be implemented to improve aspects of a players game. Perhaps your character and the confidence you emanate can be the difference whether players listen to you or not. Maybe knowing when to be stern is good aswell.
