|| Hi Sudhir,
depends on the size of the team, your team spirit and your role. There are two extremes: if you were a developer before, you might internally calculate how difficult it might be to implement an improvement and reject the "expensive" ones. When you have no clue and you face a defensive development team, they might brush you off with "can't do" statements.
If I had to make a pic as a UX pro: improve my tech skills or my people skills I would opt for the people skills. Of course my view is biased my my technical expertise .
