The three essential skills or competencies are :
1. Technical skills – involve process or technique knowledge and proficiency in a certain specialized field, such as engineering, computers, accounting, or manufacturing. These skills are more important at lower levels of management since these managers are dealing with employees doing the organization’s work.
The technical skill involves the manager’s understanding of the nature of job that people under him have to perform. It refers to a person’s knowledge and proficiency in any type of process or technique. In a production department, this would mean an understanding of the technicalities of the process of production. Whereas this type of skill and competence seems to be more important at the lower levels of management, its relative importance as a part of the managerial role diminishes as the manager moves to higher positions. In higher functional positions, such as the position of a marketing manager or production manager, the conceptual component, related to these functional areas becomes more important and the technical component becomes less important and the technical component becomes less important.

2. Human Skills – involve the ability to interact effectively with people. Managers interact and cooperate with employees. Because managers deal directly with people, this skill is crucial. Managers with good human skills re bale to get best out of their people. They know how to communicate, motivate, lead, and inspire enthusiasm and trust. These skills are equally important at all levels of management.
Human skills are also the ability to interact effectively with people at all levels. This skill develops in the manager sufficient ability.
a) To recognize the feelings and sentiments of others
b) To judge the possible reactions to, and outcomes of various courses of action he may undertake and
c) To examine his own concepts and values this may enable him to develop more useful attitudes about himself.

3. Conceptual Skills- involve the formulation of ideas, conceptualization about abstract and complex situations. Managers understand abstract relationships, develop ideas and solve problems creatively. Using these skills, managers must be able to see the organization as a whole. They have to understand the relationships among various subunits, and visualize how organization fits into its border environment. These skills are most important at the top management levels.
Conceptual skills refer to the ability of a manager to take a broad and farsighted view of the organization and its future, his ability to think in abstract, his ability to analyze the forces working in a situation, his creative and innovative ability and his ability to assess the environment and the changes taking place in it. In short, it is his ability to conceptualize the environment, the organization, and his won job, so that he can set appropriate goals for his organization, for himself and for his team. This skill seems to increase in importance as a manager move up to higher positions of responsibility in the organization. Thus, technical skill deals with things, human skills concerns people, and conceptual-skill has to do with ideas.

Actually its not a comment!... I am seeking answer to a question.
There would be a team of 5 employees, out of 5 employees one employee is very aerogent and difficult to handle such person. even if the team lead ask him to come to conference room for discussion about his problem he would not come. even if he comes he will speak arogantly.

Being a team lead please suggest how to handle such guy.

Every individual is first of all different. Then each person has a unique way in which he processes information in his mind. When the team lead does not understand the info processing mode of a team member, there are greater chances of developing an unpleasant experience. Behind every behavior of every person (though may look bad to others) has a positive motive. The only problem with some (or sometimes most) is that they don't learn how to manage their positive motives and align them with socially acceptable behavior. Most of the times there are conflicting motives within the person which he is not aware of. Sometimes its a perspective which is causing this unwanted behavior in the person. Now this perspective can be supported by many other perspectives which are formed throughout all the past experiences and interpretations of events by the person. It could be a belief working as a barrier for desired behavior. You will be able to see....that there is never one reason or way to deal with issues like this. The best way used by orgs is to throw out such people. But in realistic world, every person is problematic to some extent. The question is how much is bearable or how much is acceptable.
Leaders must learn deeper skills and strategies to deal with people in general and people in specific.
