Editor's note
Curiosity, once scurrilously associated with killing cats, has
been rehabilitated on TrainingZONE this week. Godfrey Parkin
maintained it was the single most important skill that would
significantly improve the performance of organisations and some
of you agreed. But what about passion, imagination,
communication skills, honesty and touch-typing, which have also
been thrown into the ring? Read the arguments for each of these
skills or nominate your own at:
