Problem solving? Critical thinking? Communication? Discipline? Manners?

Mastering the culture of the workplace – how to sound, how to act, how to dress, has a disproportionate impact on your success.

The ability to navigate the work environment – to fit in – may be the most valuable skill you acquire. Counterintuitively, having this skill also allows you to change the culture.
