Thinks that building up knowledge (learning hard skills) is essential, however, improving personality (soft) skills is of no lesser importance. What is an excellent programmer good for if they cannot work in a team? What is a knowledgeable manager good for if they cannot deal with people? What is a businessman who can identify new opportunities good for if they cannot negotiate a fair price?
