The Power of Transferable Skills

Recently, I did a podcast with Dr. Pelè who is a bestselling author, musician, and host of the PROFITABLE HAPPINESS™ Podcast, where he features the stories of highly successful executives, experts, and entrepreneurs who exemplify the use of happiness to build profitable workplace cultures.

 

Transferrable skills are those strengths and competencies acquired through experience in one field of life and work, and then re-imagined and applied to a new life or work situation. They are amongst the most valuable skills one can possess because you are able to approach a new situation with a wide variety of perspectives, each with their own unique powers to transform and elevate creativity and success in one’s new working environment.

 

In this episode, we meet creativity thought leader, musician, and corporate business executive Christopher Caliendo. Christopher is the Vice President of Business Development at Opus Bank, and has leveraged his vast musical success and background to add creativity to the banking industry.

 

My favorite quotes from Christopher Caliendo (paraphrased):



“Sales is the Art of Listening!”

“Never Stop Networking!”

“You are more than your business title!”

“Music is a Recreation of Reality!”
