KEY ISSUES

Matching personal and company values

Knowledge - Anybody knows everything so what you do with what you know is key.

Portfolio careers – good companies invest in developing to hold good people – you won’t always be doing what you thought you might, or when or where

Quality and speed of decision-making will be your point of difference.

Skills for Business Leaders

Constant personal development ethos – formally and informally. Where you are at in the next 5 years will be dependent on three things – the goals you set, the books you read and the people you associate with

Interpersonal communication skills-

“The Internet more than ever will distinguish those with exquisite people skills” - Mark MacCormack. IMG

Humility, communication skills and understanding other people

Flexibility in thinking – traditional rigid distribution channels, work practices and company structures are disappearing.

How can we do business,

not how do we.
