Today I was listening to a panel of educators discussing where things should be going in schools.  They talked about the concept of enabling skills.

These are the skills that set up a student in their early years so thyey are better equipped for learning in the mid and latter years.  Typically numeracy, literacy and problems solving fit into this set.

It got me to wonderring what the enabling skills are in our profession.  What do you need to know first in able to set yourself up to continue to grow and improve in your role?

I suspect it's not the obvious candidates.

Dear readers - I'd love your comments on this one.

    I agree with your opinion but in today's world tath every thing is changing daily, it is not a good solution unless you were not fitted to your position in organization.

  2. Thanks for the comment Sadegh.

    Could you clarify your point a little further for me?
