“A Sense of Perspective” – Kimble CMO on Soft Skills for the Tech Sector
The digital magazine IT Business Edge consulted business leaders, including Kimble CMO and co-founder Mark Robinson, over what are the key soft skills which are required for the fast-paced environment of technology.
Robinson identified a sense of humour and in particular, a sense of perspective, which helps to stay the course in this dynamic and challenging area. He said: “From geeks to fast-talking salespeople and unicorn-inspired egomaniac entrepreneur founders, you need to be able to work alongside all of them and keep your sense of perspective. So being able to take a more light-hearted view of some of your colleagues’ antics will help.”
Other skills highlighted in the article include: empathy, the ability to collaborate across disciplines; communication skills; listening and flexibility; a customer service mindset, an ability to connect with other people, time management and the ability to prioritize work tasks and to meet deadlines.
