When in the presence of someone who has achieved success in business, it is natural to question: What is he or she doing differently than the rest of us?
Many people conclude that highly successful people are those who are blessed with higher intellect, more charisma, or simply luck. However, this is usually not the case. Recent accounts by business leaders suggest that the strongest factor tying successful people together is simple: their ability to be self-aware.
Billionaire founder of Virgin Group, Sir Richard Branson, cites self-awareness as key to his business success, stating, “I’ve found that knowing yourself can help you to know when to follow your instincts, so you can find the courage to move ahead and ignore the advice of naysayers.”
Self-awareness is the foundation for achieving higher levels of performance. Successful people are those who know what they can offer, how to promote their talents and how to avoid the pitfalls that could limit their success. And, most importantly, this is a skill that can be taught to everyone.
In October 2013, Ian Cameron, Managing Director of the McQuaig Institute, and Louise Kursmark, Director of BlueSteps Executive Career Services, hosted a one-hour webinar focusing on how you, too, can learn these key skills and unlock your full potential.
This webinar covered:
  • How to utilize your 'unique selling point' to advance your career
  • How to identify and exploit your core strengths to ensure you make the right career move
  • How to align your personal temperament with the demands of your current job to get noticed
  • How to showcase your past accomplishments effectively
A complimentary recording of this seminar is now available.
