It's All About People and Minds
Career and job-related content on how to work with people, including content on the different personalities and how to deal with them. It is essential information for any job since every job in every career works with people. Each person, including yourself, has a unique personality. Understanding how people "tick" is key to being able to effectively work with them. The Career skills builder program has two classes of people and minds.
The business analysis section discusses how to handle analyzing and solving business problems. Business analysis is a necessary skill that will get you to the right solution in the right time.
