The People Factor
Studies have indicated that 15% of job success is based on technical competence while 85% is related to interpersonal skills. There is no doubt that the people factor is one of the most important issues to be dealt with as we strive for competitiveness and increased productivity.
Consistently, the top or second issue for business is recruiting and retaining the right people and then shaping them into motivated and well functioning teams.
I believe we have to bring new strategies to bear on this challenge. Increasingly it is agreed that People skills are central to personal and organizational success. Therefore it is my contention that Behavioural styles and Interpersonal approaches require the same rigorous analysis and training investment as technical areas.
