Five Important Skills to Achieve Success in Your Company


August 8, 2014

Many traditional business practices, technologies, and strategies are quickly becoming outdated. Similarly, traditional business-oriented character traits are rendering obsolete. While the basic traits of a good executive are still deemed valuable, a new array of demands from the public is accumulating.

Here is a list of important skills a business executive should have today:

  1. Visionary

New-age business executives should be able to articulate, form and lead a vision they or someone else may have. However, it’s also crucial to maintain a clear and distinct vision of the company for talented newcomers to be enticed by. A well-thought out and planned vision will attract the top talented employees to your team.

  1. Presenter

Having a talented and publicized presenter in your company has the ability to attract more customers and clients to your business practice. Leadership is important, but how that leadership is translated through the many modern day platforms is what will set your business apart from the rest. Having someone in your organization deliver a TEDx talk for example, might just be the ticket to make your company stand out from the rest. Significant industry events deliver pubic awareness of your company to potential customers, so it’s crucial to have a presenter within your organization.

  1. Communicator

When people have context for their work they tend to work harder and better. Today, a leader who creates open discussions around work tasks, listens to feedback from employees, and provides useful information in return – will provide their staff with a greater context and meaning and will therefore generate greater results and productivity in the workplace. Communication is a vital aspect to any company.

  1. Technologist

Today you can’t get by without any technical knowledge. Everything is slowly moving online, and companies are changing their practices and methods for productivity all the time. Having an understanding of the technology your business is based on, whether it’s simply apps and software’s, or selling online services/devices to your customers – you should be educated and knowledgeable on these topics to ensure company success.
