    The skill I have chosen is TEAM CREATIVITY. Creativity inspires employees to work with each other. As they have new ideas, they seek out colleagues for their feedback. By design, the creative process encourages collaboration, and this is the most important benefit of offering a workplace where creative thinking can occur.

    The skill I have chosen is team problem solving.

    I am going to tell the environment officer why it is most important to them.

    My reasons are the art of problem solving would help the environment officer to tackle many new environmental issues which are unpredictable and the environment is changing gradually due to climate change. Having this skill, he will be able to get creative ideas to solve any issues instantly and when any problem will arise, he will be automatically motivated to speak up to solve the crisis and he will be smart enough to hear other's point of views and take opinions to solve a problem fruitfully. Problem solving leads to creativity, speaking and listening in my opinion.

    The skill I have chosen is creativity.
    I am going to tell the environment officer why it is the most important to them.
    My reasons are:
    Creativity helps the man to overcome a difficult work through improvising. They have to be creative in selling drinks, for instance, they can give plant for free if a customer buys 2 or 3 drinks at a time. This initiative can inspire people to be conscious about the environment. They can use electric cars to travel or to transport drinks one place to another because these cars produce no carbon dioxide emissions when driving. Again these are environment friendly and less energy consuming. So I think they should improvise every situation with creativity to play a role in saving the planet. Creativity will help them to think or make new methods and innovations to do the work easily and creat a green planet.

    interviewed the cleaning team, which I called the “beauty makers” and asked the team: Do you think your job as a cleaning team is considered green jobs?? They answered, yes, of course, because we enhance the quality and preservation of the environment and its aesthetic appearance, and we work to reduce the spread of environmental hazards such as garbage, and thus prevent the spread of diseases. In the street, to know the extent of the positive impact of hygiene work on individuals in the community. They replied that we have all respect, appreciation and thanks to them for their great effort in improving the environment and its cleanliness. Then I interviewed a supermarket manager to ask him about the extent of the impact on him by the cleaners, and he replied with enthusiasm, we thank them for their great efforts, as I am a manager I throw the supermarket waste and I want to get rid of it. The cleaners will raise the waste and dispose of it, so they have done well with these waste and waste, and if it wasn’t for the cleaners, we would not have been able to live in an environmentally and aesthetically clean environment. Our environment is from environmental degradation and this green job after people thank and praise it, green jobs It is imperative in our societies to advance them and I say “No unemployment with green jobs” and together and together to encourage green jobs

    The Skill I have chosen is "Team Speaking."
    I am going to tell the supermarket manager why it is most important to them.
    My reasons are.... Firstly for a supermarket manager it is very important to have a great communication skill so that he can communicate with the customers easily along with a polite and befitting manner and the speaking plays the most important role in this case as it enables him to communicate with others.
    Again as a supermarket manager, one needs to make the employees understand of the rules and also make them bound to follow the rules... so in this case the speaking style has a great effect. The way of speech presentation of the manager to the employees determines the reaction of the employees towards him to a great extent.
    And it is the speaking skill which helps one to present his taken decision in front of others and also make others understand of the importance and effects of the decision.
    For the above mentioned reasons I think SPEAKING SKILL plays an important role for a supermarket manager.

    I think creativity is an important characteristic because creativity helps develop self-confidence, because the creative person deals with a lot of positive and negative situations, and is prone to failure many times, for example, the artist can draw paintings knowing that they may never see sunlight, and all this makes him More able to discover that failure is something that can be dealt with and survived, and this will help him achieve a better job and get rid of the fear of failure or trying new things, and thus develop his self-confidence more.

    The skill I chose is listening. My reasons are because it is a flexible skill with which we can solve problems and also we can show respect to the speaker and we create strong relationships When we listen to the whole talk we can understand what we are talking about whether the talk is a problem or something else and we can avoid misunderstandings that many do and problems arise From nothing and there are indications that you are not a good listener, first of which is using the phone while listening to the speaker and checking your accounts or messages. Unfortunately, this phenomenon is used a lot. Secondly, you take possession of the conversation, as if your friend is explaining or summarizing a book he has read and you interrupt it and talk about a book that you have read. Think about the answer, and I mean that when you want to respond to a person and think about the answer well before you speak, there is also etiquette to respond to a person, which is if you disagree with his opinion, do not speak brutally and in an impolite way, reveal yourself but in a polite way and be honest and frank in your words but arrange your words carefully And don't say things that hurt him

    In a job like an environmental officer, communication is the most important tool you can have, as it assists you in educating others in the most environmentally friendly ways to go about things. Speaking is a key role in teaching and instructing-sure an email could get the same point across,but not with the same feeling and emotion of a speach.How are you ,as an environmental officer,going to get across the urgent point :our planet is dying,we need to do all we can to stop that,without the deep emotion of speaking,simple words can change a persons mind,and lead them on the correct path of environmental justice.

        I think listening. listening is what we miss when communicating . To listen, we need to make a conscious effort not to just hear what people are saying but to take it in, digest it and understand. Not only does listening enhance your ability to understand better and make you a better communicator, but it also makes the experience of speaking to you more enjoyable to other people.

    My reasons are, When you manage or run a place, you need to be aware of problems and good at solving them. People always tend to turn to leaders if any problem arises. Also, problems may arise among customers and employees in a supermarket. If the manager is good at problem-solving, he can use that intellect to keep a good environment in and around the supermarket. Moreover, he can solve the problems that may arise due to the rules given in the supermarket. There will be people who would not want to follow the rules. So, with this skill, he can also overcome this. Finally, to sum it up problem-solving is a skill that is most helpful to the manager.

    The skill I'll be on her team is listening, and I will tell the Environmental Officer how important my skill is to him, by showing him how it will generate important theories that will make a difference
    I think that the most important quality that he should possess as an environmental official is listening, as he will listen to the problems of the environment attentively, so that he can propose logical solutions that take into account all the aspects that were discussed when raising the problem , or when ignoring a specific problem, he will listen to the group most affected by it and help them to solve it, also listening to the theories and ideas of others will help give everyone the right to listen to him and his ideas , It will also result from the interest that resulted from listening, realizing a new theory or innovation that will solve global environmental problems and its solution will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions, for example, when he hears a theory from a person who works with him in the environmental organization, this will help him to think and delve deeper into the theory, which will result in the creation of a new theory, and also, we do not forget the skill of listening in spreading environmental awareness, as it is represented in listening to the problems that people may face when coexisting with the procedures related to building greener,this will help in solving problems before they occur, thus making it easier for the people and the world to face the change of lifestyle

    In a job like event organizer the most important thing is communication with others . in this job you have to make people(your co-workers) understand what your customer wants . Giving correct directions and making a project successful you need a commanding power. By the speaking skill you have to guide your co-workers properly.

    in a profession like environmental officer speaking skills is very precious because good speaking skills allow others and you to understand your concepts and information more accurately and quickly . In contrast, poor communication skills lead to frequent confusion and exasperation . if environmental officer have speaking skill he pass information to other people, and understand what is said to others. he able to understand the roots of environmental problems and issues better equips one to effectively communicate about how to resolve.

    The skill I have chosen is creativity, and I am going to tell the environment officer why my skill is the most important to them.

    We must admit the fact that, "Every skill is equally important, none of them are efficient for us if we don't have creativity." Doesn't matter if you are a good speaker or listener or problem solving, you must need creativity in your mind to make them useful. Because when you can't think about something new and out of the box, your words and skill don't have any values. Creativity is the reason why we human beings are that much advanced compared to any other creature. In the job of an environmental officer, it's needed even more.

    Being an environment officer, thousands of situations, thousands of issues you would have to go through. To solve those, you must need creativity. Because the more creative you are, more efficient thoughts and solutions you will be able to get. Being a good speaker or listener you obviously can contribute a lot, but only and only if your words and CREATIVE AND EFFICIENT. The world needs solutions to overcome this climate change issue, and I believe creativity is the most needed thing we need in this sphere.

    The skill that I have chosen is Creativity and I am going to tell supermarket manager why it is important to him/her.
    Traditionally customers are accustomed in using plastic bags for packaging purposes. Here the creative skills of a supermarket manager will be in effect. Promotion of jute bags or bio degradable bags of unique designs and color will work as a cynosure for the customers to replace plastic bags. Whereas if a supermarket manager thinks out of the box, the creative ways like installing charging station for electric vehicles will bring a convenient environment for eco-friendly electric vehicles, working as an alternative to diesel fuelled transports, thus promoting a greener approach in the whole community. Introducing a recycling zone where the customers can get groceries by trading recylable wastes like unwanted clothing, plastic bottle, batteries, glass etc will work as an inceptive for the people of the community to be green. Another creative solution could be developing an app that will notify the subscribed customers when the shelf life of a product will come to an end and selling those products in a discounted price will minimize the overall wastage in the marketing sector.

    The first reason that I will give is the skill creativity increases one of the other skills mention above that is problem solving. As an environment officer, creativity is very much important also for the reason that with the ability to think creatively and outside of the box, people are more likely to come up with unique and innovative solutions to obstacles they encounter like climate changes. This eagerness to solve problems can lead to new ways to accomplish tasks and adds to a more efficiently in doing the researches on the solution of the environmental and climate change problems.

    I have chosen the team creativity skill and I will tell the supermarket manager why exactly it is important for them to come up with creative and innovative ideas for their supermarket.

    People are a fan of the fancy. If there isn't enough spotlight on a good product, people barely even care to notice. Good businesses have failed time and again to get popularity because they lacked the shine and polish. I would tell the supermarket manager to perfect their team's creativity practices. Because if they come up with new and gorgeous ideas, people WILL care to notice. The rest is up to them to make the idea fruitful. For example, weekly/monthly offers to give discounts. Through this, the customers will be more interested in their products during that time. Another example would be to create aesthetic decorations for placements of products where the products that are most bought will be in the front lines to make the shoppers’ lives easier. Creativity will also help the supermarket to be up to date with newer ideas and improvements.

    Besides, creativity is a skill that helps almost everywhere. It might make one’s job easier, might create better results than the traditional methods and what not. Creativity is one of the most vital skills in most job sectors.

    It’s also more important than the other skills like listening, speaking and problem solving because creativity will make them do newer and innovative things that include problem solving to implement new ideas, speaking might also be a part of their creative ideas, as well as listening. That is, if they come up with ideas like taking customer opinion, they will have to listen to their customers. Again if they plan to advertise through voice, they will need to have good speaking skills. In a way, many skills are needed to apply creativity in any place.

    I have chosen Team Problem solving.

    As a team of such motives, I would like to pick the environment-related problems out and find secured and long-established solutions for them. When the people leading from the front will come up with different creative ideas, speak for or against the point and implement them, a lot of crisis might arise. My team of problem-solving can play a great role in handling such situations while leading the other people to the safest zone of their mission of saving mother nature.

    I think team problem solving is more important than the other team of skills because issues in projects might arise and cause downfall. My team can be the light in the darkness leading them to the destination.

    The team that I've chosen is the "Team Speaking". Yes, there maybe a lot of queries regarding my team selection but according to my belief, this team is capable of accomplishing every single task through their special ability that is the "Speaking". In this platform, all of us are talking about the green skills which represents all the the knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society. I won't be opposing the rest of the special teams. But I do have a strong belief that my Team of speaking will always be ahead of the rest of the teams because at this moment in this mundane world, the most important skill that an individual must possess is the "Speaking ability". If you are good at speaking than you are good at everything. The world runs on this sacred ability. If we want to be a good leader, motivator, entrepreneur all we need is the speaking skills. I may perform a lot of activities and can have a loads of knowledge but if I don't have the guts to stand in front of people to express myself than all of my rest of the skills will surely be in vain. I am going to tell the above visitors about the speaking skills and behind my supervision there lies a thousands of air staunched reasons. We all know the importances of creativity and problem solving skills in the above mentioned areas. But what's the point of having such excellent qualities but lacking the power to express those potentialities.

    We all know the present demand of oil among the world superpowers. The oil rig worker is being deployed in one of the crucial economical sector. While working here, if he or she does not know how to conduct the works in an oil field, then surely it will be bringing hassles both for him and for his company even. Now he is working at the grass root level of the oil field but within someday , that same worker maybe standing in the position of a supervising position, where he/she will be commanding others how to be more specific and efficient in their works. Now at this moment, if that supervisor is on the spotlight but he/she could not annex all the skills of his/her past working factors and skills than surely all his creativity skills and problem solving abilities will be a part of futiles. The supermarket manager's job is in my belief standing on the base of speaking abilities where he/she advertises the quality of products and commodities which will help him in running the shop profitably. Lastly, the environmental officer has to be precise in his contents to spread consciousness regarding the safeguarding of environment and if he is full of ideas but lack in expressing himself than the environment's safety is surely in a void space.

    So let's just bring down the team of speaking to guide the visitors to ensure an efficient future for them.

    Thank you.

        Thanks a lot for your concern Mam. Yes, it is obvious that what we say is definitely important . At present, the words uttered through the tongues of human beings are the deadliest weapons . You can win a war just through your spur words which will be igniting millions of the freedom seeking populace. Now let's go down straight. What we say to others is definitely an important cart because our choice of words, use of contents, abilities to touch the hearts of the listeners so that our one word becomes the reason of their one step forward to glory. For walking we have to use our legs, for listening we have to use our ears, similarly for having the listeners listen to us we need to use good points, reasons and logics during our speaking. Otherwise, as a broken leg leads to crippled walking likewise a content-less speaking ability brings a wasteful time of pressuring the ear muscles.

    I am going to tell my supermarket manager that team creativity is the most important skill they need to progress .
    In a supermarket , every day , the employees interact with various people and often time those people like the service provided by the employees . With team creativity , we can find many innovative ways to solve the problems of customers , entertain them and increase the business etc. Also we can use various modern carbon free , artificial intelligence to improve the systems . With creativity we can substitute various green products with harmful products .
    So I think team creativity is vary important .

    I have chosen the team listening skill and I will tell the environment officer why it is important for them to achieve it in order to ensure a better habitable environment around.
    My reasons for choosing listening is because I believe when you allow others to talk, you could begin to appreciate new ways of thinking. Considering different points of view could help you and your team think more broadly and critically about things to come up with better, more innovative solutions for more green and better environment by detecting the actual problems that prevails.

    As the environment officer already said in his speech that he has to ensure that people are being environment friendly which includes the minimum energy and fuel waste and to ensure there should be an active communication between the officer and the people of the community regarding their approach and thoughts to it.

    To get to a better environmental state it is necessary to detect the problems first and then work accordingly,for that listening to the actual prevailing problems by the people who faces it is a must.The other skills including speaking,problem solving or creativity comes after the detection of issues.

    in any kind of professions facing adverse situation is a usual condition.And i think if one has got the capacity to listen to the adversity of others facing similar situations beforehand ,then he might get ideas how to overcome or find solutions for the trouble.

    The skill I have chosen is speaking, and I am going to make it clear to the environment officer why speaking is the most important skill among others.

    In a such type of job, the most important thing is to make others motivated to do their jobs properly. There is no other way as effective as speaking, as speaking can touch ones heart and bring the true change in the person. We can encourage the people to save our mother earth from dying and come forward to spread awareness and sincerity. Speaking is the main factor for leading a team or group. We can command or order them to do something but their works will not be perfect and not be coming from their heart. We can bring the true change among them so that they do their jobs with utmost dedication and passion. Many people are aware of the fact that our planet is on they way of collapse, but they do nothing. Its because they are not inspired to do so. A good speaker can trigger their souls and make them realize the depth of the matter.
    Of course the other skills are very much important. But it will not bring out any effect if you are just a listener and don't posses the ability to lead. Also problem solving skills and creativity will also not be effective if you cant express your thoughts to others. And research shows that in most of the cases a good speaker is creative and also a good listener. So, I will surely go for the skill 'SPEAKING' in this regard.

    The skill I have chosen is CREATIVITY.

    I am going to tell the supermarket manager why it is most important to him.

    It's no surprise that creativity outperforms all the skills of the list. This isn't just a valuable learning pursuit; it's also vital to success in school and in the workplace. For this reason, Creativity Fluency is used in thousands of schools all over the world.

    The question might arise, "Why Creativity Matters?"
    The global marketplace is more competitive than ever. Innovative products thrive on an organization's ability to design and present them in aesthetically pleasing ways. Creative thinking and application grab consumers' attention and secures their loyalty. Ultimately, creativity is a common language we can all learn to communicate our passions and ideas with.

    I will chose the team creativity. From my view, creativity is associated with the other skills listening, speaking and problem solving. Through creativity we can come up with pragmatic and innovative ideas that will help in problem solving. Listening and speaking also require creativity. Of course for that we have to think in a 'green' way while solving problems. In this way by creativity we can come up with ideas to save our environment.

    How can one express himself properly? Definitely it is through speaking . And through this skill one can explain oneself properly . If an environmental officer have good listening, problem solving and creative skills but he lacks in the aspect of speaking than he will lag behind. Besides speaking properly also means convincing and this speaking capability works in the system of fission process. Like a message has been derived from the speech of an environmental officer and two people listened to it . Then those two people will deliver that message to four people and it will increase in the same manner . And through speaking skill the environment officer will be able to spread awareness among people real fast and also implement his duties and other skills into action .

    The skill that I have chosen is "Problem Solving." This skill is the most important among all other skills because in the end, we all will face problems and if we are not able to solve these problems, the whole process won't be of any use. In the end we all face environment problems too and problem solving is the first and foremost way to solve things.

    I have chosen team speaking. Because, I believe that speaking is an art. A super market manager can use this art as his biggest weapon.
    present world loves to follow. They follow the celebs most. Environment officer can take help of the Political leaders of their localities who can speak for environmental benefits as political leaders have a big fan following.

    These speaking skill is important because its our words that can change a person, a state, a subcontinent and above all the whole world. Like Martin Luther king ,Nelson Mandela ,Sheikh Mujibur Rahman did.

    I have chosen "team speaking". And I am going to tell the supermarket manager how my skill can benefit them in achieving an environment friendly system.
    What is the most important thing to bring change in the society? It is definitely motivating people to change their own behavior. And the most effective way is through "Speaking". We have seen Winston Churchill, Dr. Martin Luthar King jr , the idol of youths :Greta Thunberg and many more who brought changes in the society by raising their voice.
    being a Public Speaker I work for the marketing branch. The innovations in the supermarket to shift towards an environment friendly business is done by our lucrative marketing of the features.

    At first we've to realize why problem solving is important & how it can help us to work for our environment. Yes, speaking, listening or creativity are also important skills. But when there will be a problem or tough situation, then without having problem solving skills we won't be able to think out of the box by thinking creatively to solve the problem. If we can have problem solving skills then it will be helpful for the environment officer to solve any new problems or to overcome any tough situations.

    The skill I've chosen is problem solving, and I'm gonna tell the environment officer why it is the most important to them.
    At present, people are becoming more indecisive in critical situations. There's no shortage of problems in this world, but what we need is the ability to solve those problems. A lot of pollutions, carbon dioxide emissions and so on are occurring as we speak. Rather than turning this planet into a toxic wasteland and looking for another planet to go to, we need to innovate new ways to deal with these problems. It's easy to make a choice, but the challenge is in making the decision. And so, we need the synergy of everyone in solving the problems collectively. This will require a lot of brainstorming and teamwork to ensure the best chance o9f success. The skill of problem solving is often overlooked, but I believe it's more significant than listening, speaking or creativity when talking about climate or environmental changes; where speaking or listening won't make the changes but the skill of problem solving will. In order to reduce the harmful effects of climate change, it's necessary to think of new solutions and implement those accordingly. Speaking is good, but the CONTENTS of speech matter here in order to eradicate those problems. Same goes for listening. Creativity is auspicious but it doesn't guarantee the solution to any problem, and creativity won't be used unless there's a reason like solving a problem. That's why it's necessary to know the purpose of using any skill; where in this case it's about the protection of the environment.

    1- Creative skill (the ability to think outside the box) and come up with creative solutions is a rare feature, in inventing and discovering modern machines, means and methods to overcome climate change and help the environment.
    2- A critical thinking skill (the ability to think rationally and studied), where scientists and even ordinary people want to think about a problem and determine the best steps needed to complete it, and it is considered a green skill because it helps in the correct thinking of solutions to the climate change crisis.
    3- The skill of visualization (imagining outside the box) and getting out of limited thinking , when you imagine impossible things, you may think that they can become reality, when you visualize, questions come to you (why - what - how) and these are the required questions, as scientists have become, It is considered a green skill because it helps visualize and anticipate the right devices and plans that will be used more frequently in the climate change crisis.
    These three skills are very important and related to each other.

    The skill you chose is a natural herbalist..(Replacing chemical cosmetics with natural cosmetics,)

    I will tell the shopping manager that replacing chemical cosmetics with natural cosmetics will be much better on the skin, and its effect is less harmful than chemical preparations, safer for the skin, cheaper and less harmful to the environment.


    This skill will be very important in the future because it does not have any side effects on the skin and is beneficial and less harmful to the environment.

    This skill helps farmers in producing large quantities of herbs for use in cosmetics and treatment as well

    My skills are more important than others because they depend on nature more than chemical and protect the environment from the first degree

    The progress of science and the spread of industrial development in various parts of the world. And the consequent increase in waste that harms the environment, the atmosphere and the ozone layer, so the environment is one of the most important topics that are taught and taken care of and graduate specialists who are able to study and preserve it. Preserving the environment, and we are working on graduating specialists with the help of many environmental cadres in various fields related to the environment. As for my skill to be important in the future, the strength of the need for it will determine its importance because the environment around us is the most important determinant that must be preserved to ensure the health of society as a whole, and preserving it constitutes the most important challenges In front of the world in the future. My skill as an environmental technology specialist becomes more needed in the future as much as the need for environmental solutions to these problems to educate people about the dangers of environmental pollution. My skill can help other jobs significantly and effectively in participating with each other in achieving environmental goals we seek. My skill is more important because it has a strong impact on the environment 'and studies environmental pollution sciences and ways to conserve.' The environment 'studying issues of water and air pollution and working to address them', examining the file of good environmental planning, working on developing health facilities and getting acquainted with environmental quality standards.

    The skill I have chosen is creativity. I would tell a supermarket manager because if you are creative, then you can create new ideas and inventions, that could help solve problems, which include listening and speaking problems as well, so therefore you would get better them, and solve other problems. This skill would also be useful in their job, because it could help solve certain common problems in stores such as: waste, plastic packaging - could be turned into paper, energy waste etc. With creativity they can create a solution for these issues like donating leftover things to charities, rather than throwing them away. They can also create posters or a notice board in the store speaking up about environmental problems.

    Creativity is important for the future, seeing that the future will be mainly revolved around technology, hence they could create a new invention like a robot that goes around the store and picks up any unneeded things, and then it is emptied, and those things are donated. Another idea, would be a robot that welcomes, or says goodbye, to all the customers with a short message of the problems affecting our planet, or maybe a machine that turns waste into new oxygen,clean air/ cold air, ventilation, so that people aren't too hot, and all they have to do is put their rubbish in the machine not in the oceans or on the floor. However, to conclude my point for this idea, you need creativity to be able to invent all of those ideas.

    It could help them do other jobs they want to do, as, if you are a creative person, you can create many new ideas, and make things a lot more interesting, thus, if you a writing a CV for a job, or just generally want to work something that includes invention/ideas - which would need creativity, this would be a key skill.To add on to this, if you are creative you could, help with advertisement, business cards, make you store more interesting etc.

    This skill is more important than the others, because if you posses this skill, you are able to use it for the rest of the skills, as well as being useful for the rest of the skills. By being creative, you can also think of a way to spread the word for environmental problems.

    I have included the word create throughout my explanation because it is key to creativity because you use creativity to create, whether it will be some new invention, or just an idea, even a drawing or story.

    The skill I’ve chosen is CREATIVITY. I'm going to tell the environment officer why it is the most important to them.

    In my opinion, CREATIVITY IS THE KEY TO OPEN ALL DOORS OF THE OTHER SKILLS. In 2006, ‘Julie's Bicycle’ is an organisation devoted to bridging the gap between sustainability and the CREAT6IVE arts. From solar-powered music festivals, green theatre tours and museums acting as community energy providers, Julie’s Bicycle is one of the only organisations operating within such a niche. Founder Alison Tickell heads up a team running a programme of events, offering free resources to companies who want to improve their carbon footprint and herself contributes to international policy development on climate change. “We need to reduce our impacts rapidly and the creative community is a great place to start," the founder tells Euro news Living. "Disappearing nature is also disappearing culture, it takes with it words, crafts, knowledge and traditions," she continues, adding "this crisis is a cultural crisis." At Julie's Bicycle, the aim is to "interrupt and reframe the stories we tell ourselves”, by working together as a creative community.
    LIKEWISE, most of the people who are working for the environment like scientists, political leaders, social activists, etc. are contributing and finding so many fruitful solutions only because of their creativity skills.

    If an environment officer is creative, he would be able to find fruitful solutions in any crisis, in any interval of time. Listening, speaking, team problem solving skills are also important. But when you don’t have the thing called CREATIVITY inside your mind, those skills are literally of no use.

    That’s why, I have chosen creativity over any other skill.

    The skill I have chosen is speaking, and I am going to tell the environment officer why my skill is the most important to them. Well communication helps understand people better and creating clarity of thoughts and expression. It also educates people. It bridges the gap between individuals and groups. Employers who invest time and energy into delivering clear lines of communication will rapidly build trust among employees, leading to increases in productivity.

    The team that I've chosen is "Team Speaking". Speaking skills are a great way to convince and persuade people. Mentionable skill can be the persuasive speech skill. This type of speech is arranged in such a way as to hopefully cause the audience to accept all or part of the expressed view.
    I would highly recommend the environment officer to improve this skill because if only he can make people aware about what our environment is demanding and how we need to care for the environment the people would be aware. The speaking skills make people turn into a representative too. Of course sometimes we see in a community or group the one who can speak well or deliver a good speech by engaging the audience is selected a s a community leader or sometimes a representative. So this skill is quite crucial for an environment officer.
    Not only that I would love to say the oil rig manager he can develop awareness about the use of fuel and try to convince the world leaders or political people that we have to turn our faces to the renewable resources.
    The supermarket manager stays in a position in a community where almost all types of people comes and goes. Starting from businessman and innovators and other types of people. So if they can talk to all these people about the importance of clean and green environment, the people will love to use the products those are recyclable and also eco friendly. And the supermarket manager always holds a position where they have to engage the buyers. This way they can gather more people and make them aware by speaking skills. People believe that effective speaking is a natural talent. Either you have it or you don’t. But this is not true. You can learn different types of speaking skills and become good at it. he whole point of speaking skills is to be able to sway people’s opinions. It’s to get them to act in alignment with your goals.

    The skill you chose is listening
    And I will tell the supermarket manager that
    We all have two ears to hear, one mind and one mouth
    So we have to listen more
    Good active listening produces ideas
    We can make a proper analysis
    It gives us the opportunity to think without stress
    And expressing a balanced opinion. There is no doubt that we then need the skill of creativity, speaking and solving problems according to what we have heard and made sure that the information is delivered in a correct manner.

    How does one express oneself correctly? definitely from
    During speaking, because through this skill the ability to inform, persuade and direct, and speaking clearly and confidently can draw the attention of the audience, which provides a golden opportunity for the speaker to make the message known, and also the speaking skill enhances the personal life of the individual and helps the ability to fluency in expression and independence of opinion, and now I asked a question on myselfWhat is the most important skill of speaking or writing according to the opinion of speaking, the biggest example of this competition I try a lot to clarify my opinion, but with difficulty unlike speech, when I express my opinion through speaking, I feel that it is more understandable than writing and this is not limited to the importance of writing, no, this is my point Because everyone has a different opinion.
