Tech sales, management, liaising with business, etc.

But any tech role has communication - presentations/training and the like.

Services consultant is the perfect role for you. Normally product companies have these kind of positions in which you would not be in development but you need to have the complete knowledge of their product line. You would be responsible for a few clients at any point of time and your job would be to work out the integration of a solution for that client. Lots of communication with client on one end and development team on the other.


You know what I am saying ?

There is actually an interesting quote from Mad Men -- "You’re not good at relationships because you don’t value them”.

Communication is a valuable skill to have, but it needs to be more than a checklist item. You truly have to believe that it is easier to solve certain types of problems via the phone than with a computer. You truly have to believe that it is vital to the project vs just being vital to your career. And of course, you have to want to do it -- instead of it being a necessary skill for your career.

Having said that, if this is for you, then communications is the key for the communications role. Talk to everyone around you. See if there are any roles which may be opening up. etc. The skill that this desired role needs, is the same skill that you can use to find and obtain that role.
