How would you define hard and soft skills?

Hard skills are specific competencies, skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to perform a specific task or role. They can be learned through education and professional development. Usually, they are technical (but not always) and easily measurable.

Soft skills are personality traits, social competencies and skills, knowledge, and abilities used to perform interpersonal activities and unique tasks. Sometimes they are also called human skills.

If you could pick one set of soft skills you would like to work on to significantly improve your career, what would it be? And how do you think it would improve your outcome?
