    Develop the "art" of what you do. After entry, developing you technical side is unlikely to garner as much promotion as developing your leadership, communication, negotiation, values, judgement, problem solving, etc.

    Communication. Breaking big/med problems into executable tasks, Setting metrics, hitting metrics, building team cohesion, humbleness, lead by example, accepting failure as a necessity. Just my $.02.
