How Much Would You Pay For the Formula to Success?
Success is a very individual achievement, only you will know when you have achieved it, equally, not every vision of success is the same.
For some women in business, success is represented by financial independence and material rewards, for others it revolves around the relationships we have in our lives, for most it is a combination of the two in varying degrees of importance.
How is it, therefore that, some women in business appear to become successful very quickly, they get promoted earlier than most and, at the same time, they seem to have a very good life outside of work? Why is it that other people who work very hard struggle to achieve the same success?
According to research carried out by Dr Derek Biddle, Co-Author of The Self Directing Professional (ewNetwork Members only), what differentiates the successful, effective people from others who are less effective is one Key Attitude and a set of Seven Skills.
The effective people had naturally acquired this attitude and skills, and it was nothing to do with having a high IQ. It was more to do with EQ – Emotional Intelligence – taking charge of your own learning and life and being self-directing. The exciting part is that these skills and mindset can be studied and learnt by anyone.
So understanding and practising the attitude and skills identified through this research is the key to developing your own personal excellence.
In this everywomanNetwork Challenge we help you assess whether you have this mind set and set of skills, and then help you to understand and address any gaps you identify.
