The core of any company, the people counted on to rise to the occasion, have similar soft skills and often different hard skills. The company does not need everyone to have the exact same skill set. If everyone only had one set of skills, only one aspect of the job would be accomplished.
The soft skills for the entire core team are the same. The skills are loyalty and the ability to work as a team, care for the company’s output and reputation, and find alternate ways to get the job done correctly.
The hard skills of the core team are varied. Those skills include purchasing needed parts, shipping completed products, manufacturing, packaging, customer relations, and an ability to find needed resources.
It is very hard for you the be the best at everything. Work well with others, share your talents, and be positive. It’s better for your ability to fit into a situation and sought out than not to be looked on as reliable.
