Relational Skills

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about an article in HBR that talked about the magic that “people people” do. Now the article is excerpted here.

And to go with it, here’s a snippet from a post by Dave Hoover, who, I suspect, is a very much a people person:

As I throw myself into a new, technically challenging project at DaimlerChrysler, I see great opportunities for deepening my technical abilities. But I also find myself in the familiar position of Waking Holgar. I believe that I will contribute more to my current project by working to improve the team than with any technical contribution I could make.

You dah man.
