Do you think that if you want to have success you should try to absorb as much knowledge as possible? Well, at least not only! Success, whether we talk at professional or personal level, derives from three factors: knowledge, competencies and attitudes. Most of the people, however, pay an excessive attention to the knowledge component while neglecting the development of the other two.
Employees who have the right attitude that translates to the best behavior are said to be the more competent. Competency is still equated or defined as skills, ability to perform, capacity, and knowledge. Competency takes more than skills and knowledge. It requires the right and appropriate attitude that eventually translates to behavior. A knowledgeable and competent person, but if he does not arrive on an appointed time to deliver, is similarly incompetent.
"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up."
~ John C. Maxwell
