Research consistently demonstrates that, although technical skills are necessary for engineers, there are certain thinking, communication, and interpersonal competencies that set some technical professionals above the rest:

The Rarest & Most In-Demand Skills:

Bloomberg Businessweek’s Job Skills Report found that companies state that the least common and most desired skills comprise the following: communication, creative problem-solving, leadership, and strategic thinking.

The Most-Critical Skills for Technical Teams:

Google studied their workforce in Project Aristotle and found that communication and interpersonal skills topped the list as most-critical for their technical teams.

The Skill with Force Multipliers:

Harvard Business Review published a study finding that top leaders viewed strategic thinking as twice as valuable as communication and 10 times as all other behaviors.
