As a Chef there is a need of large skill set. Below are the important personal and professional skills required for chefs:

1. Stay calm under pressure: There will be many circumstances when you will be under huge pressure. Some times people may not like your food or services. There will be pressure to perform, specially at some event. At that time, you will have to relax and stay focused. A minor mistake made under pressure will spoil the evening of many.

2. Multitasking: As a Chef you have to be really good at multitasking. At any given day you will be occupied with a number of responsibilities to deal with. From deciding the recipes to help the staff in cooking to keeping the discipline and maintaining the healthy environment, there will be so many tasks. It will be important for you to adjust yourself in all these requirements and perform every job well.

3. Team Spirit: As a Chef, you don't work individually. rather you work as a team. It's important to have people skills and be able to manage the people and guide them to do their jobs. Equally important is to work collectively and accept others point of views. Sometimes it becomes a challenge to work with different types of people. You will have to deal with that challenge.

4. Creativity: The creativity is very important if you want to achieve highest levels of excellence as a Chef. You will have to come up with new ideas and innovations in your recipe so that you can create new recipes. It's important to have good imagination for that.

5. Communication Skills: Working as a part of a team requires great deal of excellent communication skills. You need to communicate well in order to be productive at workplace.

6. Understand Health Aspects: The people are becoming increasingly concerned about their dietary habits and health consciousness. In todays world more than taste, the effect on our health - is how the food is measured. As a Chef you will have to have good knowledge of health related issues and how to preserve it through balanced diet.
