People Smart
May/June 2009 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 64-70
Wushow "Bill" Chou, IT Professional's advisory board
To truly succeed in our careers, we must go beyond just being accepted and knowing how to interface—we need people to like us and be willing to help us, and we need to build a successful network of professional contacts. To achieve these goals, we shouldn't outwardly appear to be aggressive, even if we're aggressive in our objective—rather, we should be generous and magnanimous. We must also have a sense of humor and humility. In this installment of our series about the "soft skills" all IT professionals must master to advance their careers, the author focuses on how to be people smart.
