- Relationship building and communication skills. Simply a must.
- Desire to learn - not only skill based but also a never ending curiousity in your company perfromance, your marketplace and your world. Globalisation means that you must understand the underlying trends in the world.
- Self Awareness - understand your strengths and play to them, understand your areas of development and work on them or ensure you fill those gaps by others around you.
- Developer of talent. Think of the companies people want to work for - they all have the ability to get the best out of people...giving them the chance to explore their individuality and yet still feel very much part of the team.
- Diversity of experience and the ability to bring together diverse opinion.
These are by no way the only attributes and I want to give more thought to it and would welcome your comments. Think we need to explore more over the next few weeks....
