Seventy-two percent selected social skills, compared to 28 percent for Internet skills.
Similar results were found in a study by Public Allies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating young leaders who can strengthen their communities. Public Allies sought the opinions of 18- to 30-year-olds on the subject of leadership. Among the items was a question about the qualities that were important in a good leader.
Topping the young respondents’ list was “Being able to see a situation from someone else’s point of view.”
In second place was “Getting along well with other people.”
Young and old alike agree that success in leadership, success in business, and success in life has been, is now,and will be a function of how well we work and play together.
