I think the most transferable skill I learned on the internship and in my involvement since is conflict resolution (and ways to avoid needing it in the first place). It’s a skill that comes in handy in all facets of life – with friends, family, co-workers, or even the cable guy. The insights into human behavior I’ve gotten from working with MK2MK have enabled me to better relate to people both on a personal and professional level (and everywhere in between).
