Consider Emotional Intelligence for the future.  More and more we will see elements of this type of subject matter sought out in the hiring and promotional processes.  Personality profiles as well as other self assessment tools help us determine where we are in our emotional development.  This is an effective way to accomplish a needs assessment which identifies where we are, compared to where we want to be.  Emotional Intelligence will slowly overtake traditional requirements regarding the priority placed on knowledge, skills, and abilities.
