While there are bound to be different skill sets that will lead to success in certain industries, there are certain professional strengths that are universally appreciated. These are just a few that we look for in Lime Light Management interviews:
” The Ability to Concentrate: We live in a world of constant distraction, so anyone who knows how to tune out the commotion of everyday life and immerse themselves in a task stands out in a crowd. While some people seem naturally talented in this area, there are helpful apps like Self-Control and Freedom to help the rest of us.
” An Open Mind About Feedback: Giving quality advice is nice, but it’s the way in which a person accepts and uses honest, relevant feedback that matters most. We know this is difficult, so Lime Light Management is here to help. Check out “Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well,” by Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen for a step-by-step guide on how to improve critical listening skills.
” Time Management Know-How: It’s ok (even recommended) to bite off more than we can chew on occasion, but it’s not a good habit. It’s better to overestimate the amount of time a project will take and get it done early than underestimate and run late.
These soft skills carry weight in any industry. We share more of our success insights through our Lime Light Management Newswire feed; visit us there and share your thoughts.
