English term or phrase: "soft" behavioral skills
"Primary and secondary education systems need to do a better job at preparing our youth for their futures. Students must graduate with better basic skills, better math and science skills, and better "soft" behavioral skills."

aptitudes personales esenciales
Explanation:
If the "soft behavioral skills" are opposed to "hard, technical skills", and such soft skills involve attendance, follow-through, preparation, communication and responsibility according to the Washtenaw Community College, or problem solving, interpersonal skills, and positive cognitive styles in a paper prepared for the Office of Vocational and Adult Education, U.S. Department of Education, then we could speak of "aptitudes personales esenciales". In a more "hard", technical jargon, although less understandable, "habilidades conductuales esenciales" or "aptitudes conductuales esenciales".

Cheerio,
