I heard a business professor (from the East Coast of the U.S.) share his thoughts about the demise of people – and how data is really all that matters in many fields. While this may seem shocking, it’s far from news.
Yet, I would strongly disagree. Without the people side of the equation – no matter how flawed human beings can be – so much is lost. The most successful people I have ever met are definitely more than competent on the data and financial side AND they have a knack to make others feel valued, appreciated, and important. The real power success duo is data and people – especially if you want to have a happy and enduring career and life.
