Re: Soft Skills
A critical "soft skill" Jonathan eludes to here is the ability to look at the problem they encountered as an emergency worker would. That understanding of the business mission is indispensible.

Re: Soft Skills
I agree with you Rob. It's nice to see recognition of the soft skills which are in many instances some of the hardest skills to master for IT professionals.

IT Team Bonding
I imagine the drill experience also proved a powerful morale booster for Jonathan's team. Under pressure, they showed their stuff in an area of vital importance. Can you provide such an opportunity for your team?

But we worked through them without (much) finger-pointing.
