‘Critical skills’ or ‘life skills’!

‘IQ gets you hired, EQ gets you promoted’
What are the factors that play a major role in the success of individuals? Bookish knowledge, academic qualifications, and tech gyan? “Not enough,” say Naresh Purushotham and Lakshmi Kruti Vasan, co-founders of Crestcom India. You would also need a whole set of soft skills, including a positive attitude, and tact in dealing with people, even while being persuasive and motivational, they insist.

Back in 1994, the duo had promoted Counter Point Management Plus, an early franchisee of Crestcom International Asia, to “market and deliver training in the areas of sales, recruiting, customer service and particularly management skills development.”
Each month, thousands of executives and managers from more than 200 major cities in 50-plus countries on six continents participate in Crestcom Training, says “Versions of the training are available in more than 25 languages.”
