Knobull Helps Job Searchers Build Critical Skills

By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Nov. 13, 2023 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull noted, "Leadership and management rank highly in the top five skills listed as a key requirement by employers advertising jobs on LinkedIn.

But how do those successful leadership traits really think? What are the secrets of their business and career growth and how can you adapt these principles into your own career?"

Leaders Push The Envelope

Exceptional leaders make a name for themselves because they push the limits of what seems to be radically possible. They're not content to settle for the status quo.

They are adventurous by nature and push as far as possible until nature itself or circumstances beyond the scope of their control say no. When you push perceived boundaries, this results in the creation or evolution of ground-breaking results.

Leaders Are Solutions-Focused

It's easy to complain about what you don't like or what you would want to see less of in your workplace. But imagine what enormous possibilities could unfold if you pushed the envelope, and then proactively developed a solution? Innovation, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving are soft skills in high demand.

Leaders Possess Accountability

Hold yourself responsible for your work and its results, no matter what the outcome, and take pride in your projects. Own your share of work and seek to master it and understand the most effective and efficient ways of completing your project.

Leaders Inspire Enthusiasm

As an aspiring leader, your energy should be contagious. It's easy to settle into the water cooler talk of how terrible the stakeholder meeting was, or how you can't wait to finish work on Friday or leave early, or how difficult it is to win everyone's consensus at the morning team meeting. Take edX courses at Knobull to further boost success.

Leaders Lead By Example

Take pride in performing your work ethically, set high standards for your own performance, and be the one who maintains unquestionable character and embodies the values of your organization.

Leaders Gain Fresh Perspectives

You will grow stale as a leader if you surround yourself with the same environment day after day. Seek to expand and unleash your creativity by networking with others on your level or higher, learning from them, seeking mentorship and training, and seeking new partners to complement you or your organization's expertise.

Leaders Use Their Voice

As a leader, it's important to establish your personal brand and your unique voice. Become a dominant voice in your industry, and lead by sharing your insights on your area of expertise.

Bentley concluded, "Becoming a leader will require a shift in mindset and skill development before you shift in actions or job title. Apply these skills learned at edX, found at the Knobull homepage. But if any aspect of this mindset is new to you—don't worry!"
