Example if we are a good team player we can transfer our that skill in job which would really benefit us very much because in work place we meet different type of people and different people think differently so we should be able to work together with other people to run a office properly. Likewise if somebody is a manager in a workplace then he should be able to lead the people otherwise there may be a problem and the management cannot go smooth. Likewise if we have good mass communication skills then we can impress people by our words and thoughts. And we would be able to express yourself to the world.

If we have good skills in learning and reading, then we will be able to know other’s idea and with the help of that ideas we have create new different idea.

Time management

If we have self motivation skills, it will always lead us to development. Example when we are in school, if we don’t get good grades at first then we need to have self motivation skills to study more seriously so that we can get good results next time. And if we are able to acquire this skill then we can later transfer this skill in different place in workplace so that we would be able to do bring positive change and receive benefit from it. In other hand, time management is very important skill that everybody should possess because if we can’t be able to manage time then we can’t do anything. Example in a student life, we need to manage time for studying and extra curriculum activities. This is equally important for our knowledge and personality development. As well as, if we can be able to manage time then it will help us in future .As everyone knows time doesn’t wait for anybody and once the opportunity is gone then the same opportunity never comes back again. And to be successful in life we need to be able to know the importance of time. Example when we have to attain some meeting and we if we don’t be able to be in time we won’t be able to discuss about the subject and conclusion. So it is very important to have transferable skills and which would benefit us and to other people as well.
