Building and managing a business requires a lot of skill. Most leaders share certain traits and skills that helped them get to their position, but to successfully lead takes more.
From improving and maintaining finances to handling current staff and hiring more skilled employees, leaders need to know how to do it all. Here, 14 members of Business Journals Leadership Trust discuss some of the most underrated skills all leaders should work on and why.
What Beth had to say:
Having a sense of curiosity
It’s vital to maintain an innate curiosity about one’s industry and those of your clients. But given that so much of what we learn happens across life in general, it’s crucial to never stop learning. A sense of curiosity is what enables us to think outside the box when it comes to problem-solving, resulting in more creative and well-rounded solutions for clients.
