The invisible skill…

As often mentioned in this blog, we often talk about the characteristics and skills that professionals must have in order to succeed. Leaving aside the technical expertise, there are a few common desirables skills/traits for all professionals. For example, we talk about emotional intelligence, communication and collaboration skills, team working. Apart from those, there is something else.


What am I talking about? Patience. Assumption: patience is not against ambition.  Your will to grow and drive show ambition; for example, you want to challenges yourself working on the next steps of your career or embracing new challenges. However, waiting can improve your chances of being successful. Obviously waiting 6 months to get what you think it is a deserved promotion is frustrating and painful; but, isn’t it more frustrating to get a role before being ready to take that responsibility? Patience is a real skill.
