Elite athletes keep their skills sharp with regular training. IT professionals are no different. It takes training and ongoing education to keep on top of the ever-changing tech game. Increasing your knowledge and honing your skills puts you in a position of authority and leadership with your customers. It can help you have the level of conversation that impresses your customers and builds their confidence in you.
