You Need the Critical Skills to Get Ahead and Stay There!

In fact, everyone does!

“Why?” you ask.

Well, without them you might have some problems. You have limited ability to communicate your ideas. You have difficulty making things happen. You are not an effective contributor as a member of a team. You are unaware of the appropriate technology available to solve a specific problem. You don’t seem to be good at collecting and evaluating information and data, and when you conduct an analysis of a problem, you don’t have the discipline to apply logic to go from information to findings to conclusions and to solid recommendations. You can’t seem to get your priorities straight and manage your time to get things done. You don’t seem to keep your knowledge and skills consistent with the times.

“What are they?” you ask?

There are eight “Critical Skills” that span industries, functional areas, and, in general apply to everyone who wants to get ahead and stay there.

These “Critical Skills,” discussed in detail in this blog, are as follows:

  • Communications
  • Production
  • Information
  • Analysis
  • Interpersonal
  • Technology
  • Time Management
  • Continued Education

“So, what can I do about it?” you ask.

That depends on your perspective;

  • As an individual trying to manage your own career
  • As a manager
  • As an educator
  • As an executive recruiter (headhunter)
  • As a student

So let’s learn more about these things called “Critical Skills.” After all, that’s the purpose of this website/blog!

Enjoy yourself – learn something – share your stories – and let’s get started!

      Thank you – I just uploaded the video that was made back in 1987. Describes the Critical Skills in their early stages and also introduces “The Doom Loop.” (There will be a separate blog about the Doom Loop soon.)
