    A recent Productivity Institute survey reported these three skills as most important (in order of importance):
    1. communication skills
    2. ability to work with others
    3. knowledge

    What do you think?

    I'm not surprised that 2 of the top 3 are soft skills. I would also add ability to positively impact the bottom line, flexibility and the ability to work under pressure to that list.
