Focus On The Individual
Good communication skills: There are 3 elements to communication skills. They are speaking, writing, and listening.
Good attire: You must dress for success. The way you dress makes a statement about you before you even open your mouth.
Promptness: Being on time, or ahead of time, is so important. It shows a degree of respect to those you’re meeting with.
A thirst and a hunger for knowledge: Anything that you do to increase your knowledge about your position will set you apart from others.
Interpersonal skills: We’re not longer separated by great distances. We’re in a global community.
The people we deal with are different than us. We can still work with them.
Dealing with adversity: Another thing we’ll face is adversity. Having a good foundation will you through these storms.
Have fun: When you have the right foundation, nobody cares who gets the credit. This allows us to have fun.
