Selection of appropriate media for the message is implied. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental Awareness: Perception and understanding of what is transpiring in the world and how it directly or indirectly affects the organization’s vision, mission, goals, strategies, plans and actions. The environment is made up of current and future perspectives of customers, competition, and technology within the context of social, political, economic, scientific, and demographic driving forces for change. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple Skills: A well-rounded, broad perspective with expert capabilities in several key skill areas. These areas must include life skills as well as organizational skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Teamwork: Working effectively with and through others.

Innovativeness requires an understanding of the organization, its interaction patterns, and most importantly, how ideas flow within the organization to become accepted. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge: The accumulation and management of products of the mind.
