No matter how much you know in life, it will never come close to the importance of PEOPLE. I've written a similar topic about this before on the importance of being able to learn to deal with people in the workplace environment. This particular case focuses more on the KNOWING of people rather than learning to… Continue reading Not WHAT You Know
