8 Magical Skills You Should Have
We’ve allِ heard theِ run ofِ the mill career advice.
Dress forِ the job youِ want.
The world ofِ business hasِ alwaysِ been ever-evolving, butِ now it’s evolving atِ anِ exponentially faster pace.
1. Bear hug the passion for lifelong learning
There isِ beauty inِ beingِ open toِ lifelong learning inِ bothِ your personal andِ professional life.
When itِ comesِ to yourِ career, youِ mustِ beِ open toِ learning more.
Friedman says, “When youِ haveِ anِ accelerated pace ofِ change, theِ single mostِ competitive advantage isِ to beِ a lifelong learner.” Take advantage ofِ your employer’s continuing education fund.
2. Master the art of communication
In a world whereِ everythingِ is moving atِ anِ insanely quick pace, communication isِ more valuable thanِ ever.
Because we’ve becomeِ so reliant onِ email andِ text message, proper verbal face-to-face orِ phone communication isn’t easy forِ everyone.
Articulating yourselfِ isِ important, butِ there areِ two sides ofِ communication — speaking andِ listening.
3. Take a pause to find your creativity
Do youِ everِ feel likeِ you justِ need toِ step awayِ from a project forِ a while.
Allowing yourِ creativity toِ blossom throughِ hitting theِ pause button isِ a valuable skill.
4. Create a sustainable workflow
Everyone hasِ a workflow ofِ sorts.
If you’re spending a ridiculous amount ofِ time shuffling throughِ emails allِ day, you’re probablyِ a person whoِ would benefit fromِ creating a moreِ sustainable workflow.
This method allows forِ increased productivity onِ projects thatِ would otherwiseِ beِ interrupted byِ incessant email alerts.
5. Check your ego at the door
One steadfast way to annihilate your career growth. Your ego. Everyone has an ego.
6. Learn how to fail
Believe itِ or not, failure isِ a beautiful thing.
For manyِ successful business people, failing isِ merely a means toِ anِ end.
That endِ beingِ a betterِ solution, a betterِ idea, andِ a betterِ awareness ofِ what doesِ andِ does notِ work.
7. Stay current
The importance ofِ staying current hasِ never beenِ more apparent thanِ itِ isِ now.
The ramifications ofِ beingِ out ofِ the loop couldِ cost youِ theِ promotion you’ve beenِ vying for.
Beyond theِ promotion, it’s important toِ knowِ what theِ heck isِ goingِ on inِ the world.
8. Always be open to change
Embracing theِ evolution andِ change inِ the workplace isِ crucial toِ beingِ identified asِ anِ asset.
It’s common forِ workplace change toِ notِ beِ well-received.
Just makeِ sure toِ keepِ a positive attitude throughِ itِ all.
