Building Business Relationships
You can't do business without business skills.
Logical of course.
But you don’t necessarily need an MBA or to have attended university or business school to have key business skills.
It does mean, however, that you have (or have the desire and drive to attain) certain skills which most successful business people have.
So what are business skills?
Well they include communication, influencing, negotiation and line management.
They are also likely to include advanced skills such as leadership, presentation, strategic thinking and project management.
When it really comes down to it, the single trait you really need to do well in business - the single skill you need (and that you can develop) - is to be motivated, both to do well and to translate your passion and expertise into success.
Business skills are important at whatever level you work within an organisation: from working in a mailroom to running the company, good skills make you attractive to fellow-workers and employers.
Business skills, whether acquired in a formal setting, a training room or even the school of life can make a huge difference.
This is because good skills will give you the ability to communicate effectively with colleagues, get your ideas across, make people want to listen to you - hear what you have to say.
Key business skills can give you an edge
Business skills give you an edge in the way you work with clients, plan a marketing campaign, challenge the competition, bring in new business, etc.
Lack of them could mean you stay run of the mill.
More and more companies expect their employees to attend business training courses because the better skilled their people are, the better their chances are of survival in a very tricky time in our economy.
Training budgets are often the first things to get slashed during an economic downturn.
The smart companies know that quite the opposite needs to happen.
Their people need to acquire more business skills to be able to cope with added pressures, scaled down staff and higher expectations.
However you get them, good business skills will last you your entire career and may even have a good impact on your personal life as well!
