Intersection of Technical Skills and Interpersonal Skills
Filed under: Mature professionals, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 8:12 am

Over the last couple of weeks we have offered suggestions
to have you consider that technical skills alone in this
competitive and changing marketplace will not help you
reach your professional goals.

1.  Computational, ie digital tools, and robotics and
database mining (big data) are merging with technical
skills.  These are targeted “hard skills”.

2.  Marketing skills have value as well.   [See also
link to the value of business cards.]

3.   Personal habits.  This past week I met and then interacted
via several kind professional gestures with M. M. Mitchell who
posed that we had common perspectives.  So, in
displaying a “wise skill” I am being an ally for her in
sharing several keen articles that I believe can result
in habits that will improve people’s perceptions of you.
     -  Improve your Self confidence
     -  People skills - Know what not to do
     -  Treat ourselves well
