However, it takes more than just hard-core technical knowledge to get ahead in IT departments. While skills and hands-on technical experience are required for any IT professional, some of the most important contributors to a successful IT career have nothing to do with speeds and feeds or bytes and bits. The Value of Soft Skills Technology pros who also have the ability to communicate effectively, negotiate conflict, work well in teams and are adaptable to the ever-changing needs of a dynamic market are much more valuable to their organizations, especially at the managerial and executive level, says Matt Brosseau, director of Information Technology, Instant Alliance, a recruiting, staffing and consulting firm based in Chicago.

Creativity Quotes Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. SCOTT ADAMS, The Dilbert Principle Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on ... the disciplined adult intelligence. NORMAN PODHORETZ, Playboy, Dec. 1968 The creative process is also the most terrifying part because you don't know exactly what's going to happen or where it is going to lead.
