Communicate Indiawrites about the skills one need to have to become successful communication mavens.
Change and shift in business strategies have led to rethinking hiring within companies. While conventional hiring methods included a printed resume and a face-to-face interview today digital resumes and video conference interviews have taken over. The shift in hiring trends has caused a transference in the needed skill sets to be hired among professionals. For those looking to succeed in this market, here’s a list of skills you need to have to
become successful communication mavens:
The Human Touch – Over the next decade, there will be a shift from the conventional means of business to automation and
analytics will be in demand and the fastest growing.
Emotional Intelligence – The dynamics of today’s workplace is very demanding on any individual and hence candidates with a high emotional quotient are valuable to most organizations. According to the Goleman’s model, employees with a higher EQ are able to regulate and motivate themselves, reducing any possibility of procrastination, improving self-confidence and increasing focus on achieving long-term goals.
Businesses are dependent on their people more than anything, to engage and adapt to both internal and external changes, be innovative and creative. Individuals who upskill and are willing to adapt to the needs of the ever-changing business markets are the ones that can achieve more and succeed.
