Skills are almost as valuable as attitude. Almost. Skills can be trained, taught and mastered. Attitude is harder to teach yet still must be mastered.
Even still most of today’s education, from preK to Post Grad is focused on skills development. Attitude is left to fend for itself so to speak.
“We tend to hire people for what they know and what they can do. We tend to fire them for who they are!” John C Maxwell
I believe we need to spend more time focused on attitude.
“Attitude Hack” is written and trained for this very specific reason. Sure we can train people to perform tasks and skills well, who wants to work with an expert who has a bad attitude. Leaders should learn to manage attitudes as well as KSAs.
