IT meeting - stock photoTECH REPUBLIC: Gone are the days when it may be assumed that the person in charge of your Information Technology (IT) will be shut away to “work with the machines”, having very little human contact. Today we now know that digital knowledge, sharing and learning, are best utilized in an open and inclusive environment. The ability to impart the scope of a project as well as determine the needs of clientele are all a part of what is known collectively as “soft skills.”

Communication, negotiation, and listening (referred to in this article as the more descriptive “Ergonomic sensitivity”)  are just some of the skills used to either enhance the workplace environment or grow a business. We don’t doubt that some of these qualities would have a positive effect on personal relationships as well!
