You're a Success, Now Get Down to Work

For this week’s Tuesday Reading, we turn to the Career Strategies Column in the Wall Street Journal for a short piece “You’re a Success, Now Get Down to work”.

Near the end of this piece, its author Alexandra Levit writes:  “Just because you’re skilled or talented in a particular area doesn’t mean you should simply pass go and collect your $200.”  Or, as Marshall Goldsmith puts it, “Strong leaders don’t coast.”

So what do you need to do:

1.  Continue to sharpen your people skills.  Listen more carefully.  Think before you speak.  Reciprocate favors.  Manage conflicts diplomatically.

2.  Regularly look at yourself, identify your weak points, pick one, and really work to get better in that area.

3.  Begin now.


Have a great week.  .  .  .  .   jim
