Currently a SC, and I feel like as you move up the ladder to SM -> PPMD Microsoft Office skills along with logical thinking coupled with emotional intelligence amongst other things become the key driving factors for your success and efficiency. Is this accurate?

Office skills aren’t as important , but storytelling is. How to tell a story with the 2 line sub headers and a few pictures on the slides are key, along with crafting your speech to tell the story. So I guess kind of related to PPT. But yea, emotional intelligence, client relations, etc. is definitely key

One of my mentors used to say when you start your career it’s about IQ and as you go up the ladder it’s about EQ. Seems so true

Can’t tell if this is sarcasm but office skills diminish with each rung you move up. Emotional intelligence is really dependent on the individual as plenty at the level that lack that. Logical thinking is about the only one right here. Add ability to sale, think on your feet and be able to quickly understand issues and provide guidance and direction to teams.

Time and mean I don't have to ask an analyst all the time? Sure! Does it also mean I probably do more work than I should bc I can? Def.

I think knowing how to structure a deliverable and consolidate a ton of info into meaningful summaries and conclusions/recommendations is key.

Dear boomers: please stop believing everything you see on Facebook or Twitter is the truth. You guys have no idea how many times I've had to chat with my parents about the fact that if an image or a text post isn't coming from a proper source, then it was probably written by some teenager in their bedroom. Anyone else?

Really wish recruiters would stop trying to push in office work when they themselves don’t even work in office. The pizza party days and “team building activities” the retain/ attract employees are a thing of the past. 90% of what people want : a clear career path, the potential to earn more, a environment that isn’t toxic. It’s really not that hard. I won’t even look at a job that isn’t at least hybrid at that point because all that company cares about is one thing..control
