I have a theory that there are 2 elements required for career success:
- What you know – you are hired and compensated because you have excellent skills and abilities that are in demand and few others have.
- Who you know – you have an ability to make things happen because people like you and trust you, people are willing to open doors for you and you are able to add value to yourself and others based on this ability.
Most people in the world that are successful use a combination of these two knowledge points. Some are more “What you know”. Some are more “Who you know”. Few are solely one or the other.
What is your knowledge mix for success?
