I agree with it but I also disagree. They are all valuable skills but guess what? If I know how to be persuasive, I know how to present, I even see jobs asking for "self starters", "knows how to manage multiple projects" and maybe I learn how to do sales then... I just start my own thing. I don't need your job!

Of course all those skills are valuable for anyone, just like learning to play piano is. Doesn't mean you shouldn't hire people because they don't have those skills.
