Paritosh’s Answer

I have been working in Manufacturing for last 15 years and have realized the following few skills that have been useful in my career advancements:
1. Strong Work Ethic and Hard Work - nothing can substitute that. One needs to be sincere to their commitments and push themselves to fulfill all their commitments always the ethical way
2. "Can Do" attitude - new skills can be taught but Attitude is something a person has to develop himself/herself
3. Adaptability - Changes are inevitable and one needs to learn to adapt to changes in environment surrounding them, changes in business situations, changes in policies.... there are many and adapting to those changes is the only way forward
4. Continuous Improvement mindset - Attitude that never lets you rest on the achievements of today but encourages you to see what's better than the status quo and how to get there and continue doing this time and again
Hope this helps!
