Technical skills alone cannot take you to the next height

…I’d been a technical professional since the turn of the new century up until I decided to become a trainer in 2007. Between 2000 – 2005, I worked as a researcher for an international research organization. I also worked as a production operator and then a software engineer for a multinational corporation between 2005 – 2007.

These great opportunities gave me chances to work with so many outstanding technical professionals. The majority of these technically superb professionals, though experienced in their field of studies, they struggled to continually advance in their career and climb the corporate ladder due to lack of certain soft skills.

Many technical professionals in accounting, medicine, engineering, math, science, IT, and so on over depend on their technical abilities, and thus, give minimal attention toward improving their soft skills on a consistent basis. They assume that the technical skills that brought them thus far would take them to the next height. Marshall Goldsmith disagrees. He argued, What got you here won’t get you there.”…
