I read, “Wall Street Journal Article on MBA Skills”

I agree with Ronald Alsop when the article points out that leadership and communications skill come to the fore in distinguishing the managers whose careers really take off.  I’ve seen it at the NV Energy.  Hard skills get you into the job and into the business, but soft skills propel you up the ladder.  It’s interdepartmental politicking, and the people who have the combination of soft and hard skills stand out.  Hard skills get you respect from the people you work with and soft skills get you involved.  This was a great article.
