In a video posted on LinkedIn, Buffett said,
If you can't communicate, it's like winking at a girl in the dark--nothing happens. You can have all the brainpower in the world, but you have to be able to transmit it. And the transmission is communication.
He added that investing in developing your communication skills -- both in writing and in-person -- "can increase your value by at least 50 percent."
The Oracle of Omaha also once said:
We look for three things when we hire people. We look for intelligence, we look for initiative or energy, and we look for integrity. And if you don't have the latter, the first two will kill you.
Tony Simons in The Integrity Dividend argues for integrity as the predominant characteristic that "touches every aspect of your business." When practiced in its best form, says Simons, integrity enhances the value of the business and drives profitability.
Buffett: "You will move in the direction of the people that you associate with. So it's important to associate with people that are better than yourself."
As the famous saying goes, we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Make sure to associate with those further along the path who can potentially help you learn new things, grow, and advance your career.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
