Communication skills-careful listening ，clear writing ，close reading，plain speaking， and accurate description—will be invaluable.

Ability to learn will be everything else in importance-empowering people to grow in effectiveness and help their companies achieve desired objectives.

The top employees of the 21st century will be flexible, creative and motivated toward making a positive difference in the world. They will seek balance ,growth and fulfillment in both their work and home environments. The corporation of the future must respond to these needs and desires; otherwise they will find themselves hampered by a lack of qualified people to accomplish the organization’s work.
