There are LOCAL SKILLS and GLOBAL SKILLS.
A local skill at best would make you a local champion; a global skill will give you 21st century relevance.
A skill is not a talent.
Talent is cheap; skill is rare.
Talent is just potential; skill is cultivated potential.
Skill is an ability and capacity acquired through deliberate, systematic, and sustained effort to smoothly and adaptively carryout complex activities
Skill is processed talent.
No body pays you much for raw rice…but they pay alot for processed and cooked rice.
What gives you value is not really talent…what gives you value in the market place is skill.
Your CERTIFICATE or degree will give you accesss to that job interview; your KNOWLEDGE will give you the job ; but it is your SKILL that would give you a promotion.
So how do you develop GLOBAL SKILLS…What are they , in the first place?
