    The message from employers is clear ... there is a need for people who are technically skilled in their fields and have the ability to work effectively with their supervisors, colleagues and clients. More and more technical work is being performed — not individually — but in rapidly changing project teams and workgroups.

      “For the people who get into [their field] because they don’t like to work with other people, the reality of the job may come as a surprise. How do you get your brilliant design built if you can’t explain what you need? If you alienate your client, how do you get more work? Business relationships still come down to human beings conducting the relationship — and it’s important to have an understanding of how we tick.” (1)
