Nick Abruzzi has worked in the Parks and Recreation Department in Waltham, Massachusetts for 20 years, and currently serves as its Director. Throughout his career, he has found the following five skills the most important in serving his city's population.
1. Interpersonal Communications
Though digital media has provided a number of great tools for multitasking, Abruzzi notes that confidence in having face-to-face interactions is a must. "You need to be able to work with and sell to a lot of different audiences," he says. In his classes at Lasell, Abruzzi structures assignments to reflect the nature of the work, so the majority of in-class time is spent working together and problem-solving through conversation. "It helps if you are interested in interacting with a variety of personalities," he says.
