Posted Thursday, Jun 28, 2012 by
Want to become a mover and shaker that people respect?
It’s doable. You just have to make sure all the right things are in place.
There’s a lot of competition in the world. If you plan to get ahead, there are several skills that rank high on the list of people who make things happen.
If you’re presently working in a profession, or are close to graduating from college, the following skills may be the keys to your success:
- People – No matter what kind of career you pursue, people skills can help make or break your opportunities to move forward. People skills include the ability to understand others, express thoughts and feelings clearly, ask for and give feedback and build upon your ability to influence others in a positive way.
- Public Speaking – If you can’t speak or present yourself well, it’s difficult to convince superiors that you can drive business. Build public speaking skills by volunteering to speak in front of small groups. Take a public speaking course.
- Teamwork – There’s always a possibility that you’ll work with team members who have their own way of thinking and expressing ideas. Like you, they deserve the respect of having their opinion heard.
- Career Management – This can be a lifelong process of investing your resources to get to where you want to go in life. And it can involve continued learning and building valuable relationships.
