workers posses the following qualities communication skills, problem solving
skills and ability to work on teams and ICT Skills.
2. Reflect on whether you have these qualities .
3. What are your strengths and weaknesses related to these qualities?
 It has been indicated that a knowledge worker must possess the qualities
which include communication skills. In my field of profession, as nurses ,since
we deal with people it is essential of us to develop or at least master our
communication skills, be that of intrapersonal or interpersonal skills because
of the reason that communication is necessary for delivering the best care
needed for our patients that we serve. Like for example, if we are getting
information from the patient we must see to it that pertinent information is
necessary and so communicating well with the patient is therefore necessary
because if we miss something necessary it will equate to misleading of the
patient’s diagnosis and we base our care upon the diagnosis .Working on a
health care team, nurses most of the time stay at the patient’s bedside
more than any member of the health care team and so problem solving is a
skill necessity for a nurse to have. A good problem solver entails critical
thinking abilities. Critical thinking is a skill needed by nurses and being
developed through time. In our modern times, ICT is necessary to be able to
cope up with the fast changing world. Being digitally proficient helps us to be
globally competitive.

multidimensional skills. Second thing I learned from the subject that
technological changes and innovations drive the development of the
knowledge based economy through their effects on production methods,
consumption ,patterns and the structure of the economics and lastly, the
concepts of knowledge economy and knowledge workers are based on the
view that information and knowledge are at the center of economic growth
and development.
