“Attitude is everything” might be a great poster slogan, but some people who have great attitudes lack the necessary skills. One of the most heartbreaking tasks is to tell somebody who has a great attitude that it’s just not working out, that the organization is not the right place for him, or that he simply doesn’t have the required skill set.
We need more than attitude. Attitude can be the foundation, but we also need skills. The best way to acquire those skills is to work for the right organization- one that gives us the opportunity for training and development. Yet if you work for an organization that doesn’t offer development, you’re not off the hook. Go out and see how to get better.
