Bringing Out the Best in People
Stanford Research Institute says 85% of the reason you get a job, will keep that job, and move forward in that job has to do with your people knowledge. Only 15% depends on your technical skills and knowledge, regardless of the profession. As we all know – “people don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”

There is a great man who makes every man feel small.
