Research shows that only 15% of success is due to technical skills, while 85% is due to our social skills. Our society increasingly calls for highly trained people who often lack these social skills to connect and communicate with others. The result-- The quiet person fails to thrive, to be promoted, to find a mentor, or to connect with other employees, clients and customers.
