Use tips from the breakthroughs of others to jump start your success. Speaker, author, adventurer, and host Heather Hansen O’Neill takes you on the journey from fear to fire. Today we talk about career tools and essential skills that are critical for our success.
This week’s theme: Career Tools
One of the most important things to remember while thinking about how to succeed is that leadership skills can be learned. Leadership can be cultivated and developed, despite how difficult it may seem at first. It’s not necessary to be born with “it.”
Although the term “leader” conjures up images of Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King Jr., anyone can develop leadership skills, and those skills will help you become a more successful entrepreneur and business owner. You don’t need an MBA or a Ph.D. to be a successful leader. Anyone can learn to lead effectively. Self-improvement is within our reach.
