Soft Skills Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Barack Obama Say is Crucial for Leadership

800px-Jeff_Bezos_at_Amazon_Spheres_Grand_Opening_in_Seattle_-_2018_39074799225By: Justine Rex Llanes       Original Post:

Leadership is a fundamental “soft skill” to succeed in any organization. However, leadership is made up of different skill sets and facets.

Great leaders in their different organizations have their own interpretation of how leadership should be expressed. Nevertheless, all their insights make them great leaders in their field.

All these instruments are crucial and should be fundamentals to what a good leader should be.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Barack Obama are undoubtedly great leaders of the modern era. Their success in business and politics are products of their leadership.

Looking at their leadership styles and recommendations are invaluable gems in whatever field you want to excel be it in business, your professional career and even at home, these skills are crucial.

Let’s take a look at what insights and recommendations they have on leadership.

Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos has been a household name for a long time. His success (and failures) as captain of Amazon have been almost legendary and copied by other great institutions.

Amazon famously has its 14 Leadership Principles as part and cornerstone of the company. Interestingly, its fourth principle, “Be Right, A Lot”, is one of the most important according to Bezos.

Amazon’s fourth principle says that leaders should be right a lot. They should have strong judgment and good instincts. They should also seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm their beliefs.

Sounds easier said than done right? Well, it does. But according to Bezos, it is more than possible. Bezos said, “You’re not going to be right all the time, but I think with practice, you can be right more often.”

How does one do that? Again, let’s take it from the man himself, “People who are right a lot, they listen a lot, and people who are right a lot, change their mind a lot,”. 

It may be hard for most people as most people seek out information to support their already biased minds and beliefs. However, according to Bezos, “People who are right seek to dis-confirm their most profoundly held convictions, which is very unnatural for humans,” he said. “Humans mostly, as we go about life, we’re very selective in the evidence we let seep into us, and we like to observe the evidence that confirms our pre-existing beliefs.”.

So how does this work in the real world? Leaders with multiple viewpoints and clear understanding of the bigger picture, rather than having a narrow mindset increase the chance of them making the right and informed decision.

Let’s take a look at what this great leader has to say again. “Life is complicated, the world is complicated,” Bezos said. “Sometimes you get new data, and you change your mind. Sometimes you don’t get new data, and you just reanalyze the situation, and you realize it’s more complicated than you initially thought it was, and you change your mind.”

Need I say more? Let’s move on.

Bill Gates

Another household name. His accomplishments and philanthropy often overshadow how great of a leader he is. But what makes him a great leader, you asked? Well, according to Gates, there is one simple habit that separates successful leaders from everyone else. I’ll let the co-founder of Microsoft say it all:

“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”

This quote by Bill Gates is counterintuitive on what most of us understand about traditional leadership. It is not about being a “Big Boss” who merely gives orders and uses their authority to drive fear and produce results.

People tend to look up to leaders who inspire them, not feared by them. Leaders who include everyone and letting them know that they matter. Leaders gather light so that they can scatter it.

Barack Obama

He is considered to be one of the best orators of recent history. Barack Obama has mobilized the people of all races and creeds. His leadership pulled the American people from crisis after crisis.

According to him, one of the greatest and most underrated leadership skills is being an effective communicator.

Now let’s say you have as a leader, created the best mission and vision statement to your organization, it is specific, timely and actionable. However, you lack the leadership skills of being able to get your message across to your people. It sounds like an impending disaster regardless of the mission/vision statement.

Barack Obama’s skill as an effective communicator can be summarized into 3 key takeaways.

  1. Connect. Effective communication means that your audience can be able to relate to what is being communicated. Be personal, relatable and hit close to home. Your audience should be able to know what’s in it for them or why they are affected so that they would take action.
  2. Openness. Obama has been known to reach across the aisle, between the Republicans and the Democrats. The reason for this is his openness to listen and to sincerely hear what both sides have to say. Being open to all sorts of viewpoints and opinions makes a leader more informed and better at making big decisions.
  3. Inspire. It is the idea of filling someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. Obama does this by having and showing conviction not only in his speeches but also in his actions. During times of crisis, he maintains his composure, showing the people his courage under fire. All leaders should aspire to be the same.

Bringing It All Together

Now, there are a million skills, interpretations, and styles of what a great leader should be. But if I were to get lessons on great leadership, I would look up to those who inspire and have done something greater than themselves.

Jeff Bezos’s open-mindedness makes him a great leader by having many viewpoints and can see the bigger picture with clarity. This makes his decision making more chances of being right.

Empowering and inspiring others is what makes him and his institution great. With his leadership, he is able to bring people closer to his organization’s goals.

Why you need to own 0,02 Bitcoin

Screenshot 2019-10-21 at 15.54.55Contrary to popular belief you can buy small amounts of Bitcoin which are called Bits or Satoshis. A satoshi is the smallest unit of a bitcoin, equivalent to 100 millionth of a bitcoinBitcoins can be split into smaller units to ease and facilitate smaller transactions. The satoshi was named after the founder, or founders, of bitcoin, known as Satoshi Nakamoto.

Bitcoin itself is 10 years old, and that is almost half the lifespan of the average currency which lasts approximately 27 years, according to a recent article The rise and fall of fiat currencies. The article references a study of 775 fiat currencies by, there is no historical precedence for a fiat currency that has succeeded in holding its value. Twenty percent failed through hyperinflation, 21% were destroyed by war, 12% destroyed by independence, 24% were monetarily reformed, and 23% are still in circulation approaching one of the other outcomes.

The average life expectancy for a fiat currency is 27 years, with the shortest life span being one month. Founded in 1694, the British pound Sterling is the oldest fiat currency in existence. At a ripe old age of 317 years it must be considered a highly successful fiat currency. However, success is relative. The British pound was defined as 12 ounces of silver, so it’s worth less than 1/200 or 0.5% of its original value. In other words, the most successful long standing currency in existence has lost 99.5% of its value.

Looking at the main title you are probably asking why you need to own 0,02 and how much is that worth? – Currently the price of Bitcoin is just shy of $8000, so the price would be about $160 or R 2500 (South African ZAR), which may or may not be a lot of money. Of course if you have the resources you may even want to get some more, or if you are like me ‘as much as you can’. I am not an investment advisor and this should not be taken as investment advice, but if you are thinking of going to an investment advisor who knows nothing about cryptocurrency or Bitcoin, well that is like asking a horse breeder to to tell you about horsepower in a car. So be wise in whatever you do.

Let’s look at what your 0.02 BTC could be worth using the Stock-to-Flow chart on a page inspired by Medium article Modeling Bitcoin’s Value with Scarcity written by Twitter user PlanB.

Screenshot 2019-10-21 at 12.14.00
For my South African & Nigerian readers I have done a chart in ZAR and Naira which can be found at the bottom of this article.

As previously mentioned I am not an investment advisor, but putting some of your hard earned money into Bitcoin may just be more than worthwhile in a couple of years time.

Is it risky you may ask? Firstly without risk, there can be no reward. The biggest risk in my opinion is not to have considered the possibility today. Spending $164 in May 2025 will only get you 0,000123951 Bitcoin.

The other factor you may have to deal with is when your children and grandchildren ask you about the time you could have bought $26000 worth of Bitcoin for $164. What will your excuse be then?

There will only ever be 21 Million Bitcoin, and currently there are 18 Million, however due to carelessness many people have misplaced or lost their Bitcoin wallet passwords and keys. This has made Bitcoin even more scarce with an estimated 3-4 Million that have been lost through carelessness. So please be careful and keep your Bitcoin safe.

This could be the biggest generational wealth creating opportunity in history and you have an opportunity that may never happen again. My advice would be to get some Bitcoin even if that is just 1% of your investment portfolio. In my opinion it is worth the risk.

Make your Bitcoin grow and work for you with Mirror Trading International

No trading required!

Screenshot 2019-10-17 at 15.15.39This is a fast-growing opportunity to help grow your Bitcoin and make them work for you, instead of leaving it in your wallet where it will do nothing.

When you register with Mirror Trading International, you can join with a minimum of $100, which will go into a pool. From there it is traded on your behalf, so no trading knowledge is necessary at all. Each day from Monday to Friday, trades are opened and closed and you will receive a statement the following day, detailing the trades and the profit made. At this point the trading is realizing a profit of about *10% a month, but this is a conservative quote and in reality the profits may be higher. We like to understate rather than promise the moon!

This is all you need to do should you wish to just invest and sit back while your Bitcoin quietly grows at a slow but steady pace. Get started now

Should you wish to refer anyone to MTI, you will receive a 10% affiliate bonus.

Now if you would like to build a team, this is where you stand to make some excellent money. Based on the  traditional binary system, you will need to refer at least two people, one on the left and one on the right. From there you can find out from your up-line which leg you should concentrate on building. To qualify for the  weekly binary bonuses you will need to have a minimum of $200 in your own position, and have the two referrals. As soon as these criteria are in place, you will start earning the binaries.

Binary bonuses are paid on the volume invested in your smaller leg. It doesn’t rely on the number of people, but rather how much each individual has invested in the pool. For example, the left leg may have two people who invested $1000 each, but the right leg has 7 people who invested $100 each, therefore the right leg in this case is the smaller leg and you will be paid accordingly.

Now imagine as your team grows, and the amount of Bitcoin in each leg increases…so too will your weekly Binary Bonus increase. This bonus is about *0.7% per week, which may not sound like a big amount, but for every $1000 invested in the smaller leg, you will earn about *$7. This is per week. An additional *$28 per month in this scenario and it only grows from there!

Please remember that Mirror Trading International is a real company, and like any business, if there are no profits there can be no bonuses for that week. The trading profits are divided among the members, admin, traders and the binary bonuses.

This is a real opportunity and it is already starting to change lives. I personally have been able to pay all my monthly expenses on time, and every day we hear how people are able to pay school fees, make purchases they have only dreamed of before, book holidays etc. Withdrawal requests are processed within 48 hours, so long as it is not over a weekend.

You too can start to benefit from this marvelous opportunity. Remember, your trading pool balance will fluctuate with the changing Bitcoin price, but your Bitcoin WILL be growing, and when the price of Bitcoin rises, you will be perfectly placed to take full advantage.

Videos on all aspects of the business are available on how to register, fund your account, team structuring, withdrawals and more, and we will be happy to help guide you and set you on the road to financial freedom.  Join the team

*Past results are not an indication of future results.

Public Speaking, No Longer a “Soft Skill”, Here Are 7 Ways to Improve Them


by Justine Rex Llanes

It was Plato who said that “Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men”. The ancient philosophical masters recognized it, even back then before mass media, before the internet, how important spoken words are.

The thing is, you should not just say whatever pops into your mind. There is a subtlety required in speaking with other people, and more so when speaking publicly. This is also the reason why Plato said it can rule the minds of men. It can persuade. It can convince. It can inspire.

And it is for these reasons why we don’t think that it is just merely a “soft skill”. It is a requirement if you want to do well in whatever career path you’ve chosen.

In fact, here are three key benefits you’ll get once you’ve mastered it:

  • You will be able to sell anything. That million-dollar pitch. Your company’s worst-performing product. Yourself, to gain employment and finally land that dream promotion! The list goes on…
  • You will be able to change other people’s minds. The competitor is about to sign a big contract from the client you’re also targeting for? It’s not too late. You can still change the tides!
  • You will be able to inspire and motivate. Finally, whenever you observe your team falling a little bit behind, or getting too stressed, overwhelmed, and demotivated…imagine having the power to boost their morale after just a short pep talk?

Pretty powerful, right? It’s a shame that some people call this skill “soft”.

In this article, we are going to share with you the secrets to unlocking public speaking. We are going to share with you three proven powerful public speakers and tips on how to improve your skills, lifted from their own experiences! Ready? Clear your throat and let’s get started.

Public Mover #1: Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is one of the richest men in the world with a net worth of almost $83 billion. He is also known as one of the smartest investors of all time, even earning him the nickname the “Oracle of Omaha”.

Now, do you know what Buffett considers the secret to his success? Yes, you’ve guessed it. It’s public speaking. In fact, he claims that mastering the art of public speaking can raise a person’s value by 50%!

Here are three lessons that we can learn from Buffett’s experience:

1. Take a lesson. Buffett proudly displays his certificate on a Dale Carnegie public speaking course he took back in 1952. The actual course can be taken in person. All you need to do is sign up on their website. However, for those who are looking for an online version, then we recommend taking “The Complete Presentation and Public Speaking/Speech Course” at Udemy.

2. Raise your awareness. If there’s one public speaking technique that Buffett loves using, it’s using analogies. The problem is, how can you use them if you don’t know any? Take cues from history, popular fiction, even current events, and social influencers. One of Buffett’s recent analogies (and a powerful one, at that) is about LeBron James, saying “If you have LeBron James on your team, don’t take him out of the game just to make room for someone else. … It’s crazy to put money into your 20th choice rather than your first choice.”

3. Don’t let nerves hold you down. It is absolutely normal to feel butterflies in your stomach, so don’t let it hold you down. In fact, Buffett even had a little bit too much in the past when he dropped out of the Dale Carnegie course after signing up for it for the first time. Fortunately, he was able to win through his fear and was able to complete the course upon the second time of signing since it changed his life forever.

Anyway, let’s now move on to the second public mover. *Drum roll*

Public Mover #2: Jordan Belfort

From the Oracle of Omaha, let us now move on to the Wolf of Wall Street. Have you seen his biographical film starring Leonardo di Caprio? It is a must-watch for any budding public mover and investor.

We understand that a lot of people have a love and hate relationship with him, especially since he spent 22 months incarcerated for his misdeeds, BUT that doesn’t alter the fact that he is one of the most efficient public speakers who ever lived! As for the lessons we can learn from him, we got two for you:

4. Focus on the “why”.  According to Jordan Belfort, “If you give people a good enough ‘why’, they will always figure out the ‘how’.” People usually take this as valuable advice on how to start a business. The road is going to be rough and you need a solid “why” that can serve as a mantra during those when all you want to do is give up.

However, we can also use that in public speaking. Trying to convince someone to buy something? Then focus on the “why”, and if they don’t have one, then it’s your responsibility as a public mover to figure out the answer and give it to them.

5.The words “must” and “will” are very powerful. You can use them to motivate yourself to push through, or better yet, you can use them to move other people.

Public Mover #3: Chris Anderson

Finally, an article on how powerful public speaking is will never be complete without talking about TED and one of its founders, Chris Anderson. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, then chances are, you have probably heard of TED talks. TED is a media organization who publishes moving talks online from the best public movers—Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon) and Bill Gates (founder of Microsoft) included—for FREE.

They have a vast library on their website and on YouTube.  But check those out later, though, and learn the last two tips we have for you from Chris Anderson:

6. Speaking to others has one important goal and that is to convey an idea. Focus on that. Ideas are abstract, so how are you going to convey them with words? Should you use difficult concepts or use simple words instead? Will you be able to express it more clearly with visual props or none at all? There are a lot of different elements that go into the writing of public talks, but ultimately what’s important is to be able to get the message across in the easiest and most understandable way.

7. Connect with your audience. Finally, you should learn how to connect with your audience. How do you do that? Apparently, according to Anderson himself, this comes out naturally when you’ve effectively conveyed the idea that we were talking about a while ago.Fortunately for us, Chris Anderson offers an online course over at Udemy for those who want to learn more about public speaking directly from him! We highly recommend that you check that out pronto.

The Bottom Line

Public speaking is a life skill that everyone, not just entrepreneurs or investors (and most of all, rich people), should invest in. It has the power to change your life and the lives of the people you interact with every single day. So get that pen and paper out, make an outline, turn it into a speech, and practice in front of the mirror today. Who knows? You might just be the next TED speaker we’ll all be listening to a year from now!

9 Reasons why Mirror Trading International is not a Scam

A5Mirror Trading International is fast becoming a popular way to grow your Bitcoin. This is achieved through the trading activities using Bitcoin as the base currency. To date over 170 Bitcoin have been placed in the trading pool, and the membership of Mirror Trading International is close to 3500 members at the time of writing this article.

I will refer to Mirror Trading International as ‘MTI’ for the rest of this article.

What makes MTI Legitimate? Firstly it is important to note that Bitcoin is used as the trading currency. Bitcoin is decentralised and cannot be controlled by any government or central authority, and members in Mirror Trading are part of this unregulated environment. Therefore members need to use their own discretion, and weigh up the facts and what MTI offers, before making a decision to participate.

In my opinion these are the reasons why Mirror Trading International is not a scam.

  1. Predictability – In business nothing is predictable, you have no guarantees that you are going to make a profit or not. MTI  therefore makes no promises. Whenever a company promises you a certain percentage daily or monthly, there has to be suspicion of it being a scam.
  2. The test of time – MTI started in April 2019 and continues to grow stronger, most scams can’t last 4 months before showing signs of failing.
  3. No Recruitment Emphasis – MTI has a Affiliate program that only pays a 10% direct bonus. If your focus was on recruitment then the referral bonuses would normally be up to the fifth level, as this rewards the big recruiters. Again in MTI the focus is not on recruitment, it’s up to you whether you want to build a team or not.
  4. No Packages – With MTI there are no packages, you are free to add and withdraw whenever you like. To me the first sign of a scam is when a company has packages that have a maximum earning percentage and that will expire at some time. When this is done it is a sure sign that the company is wanting to get as much as possible from people, and that things are predictable for the company and their greed.
  5. Minimum – The suggested minimum is $100, however due to the fluctuation in the Bitcoin price your account will always trade regardless of the balance you have. MTI has no strange rules to advantage themselves and disadvantage you. Other companies would simply enforce the rule and keep the money for themselves.
  6. No Fees – MTI does not have any subscriptions, membership fees or even withdrawal fees. MTI is a sustainable company with resources of their own, they make a percentage of the daily trades and they have no need to charge bogus fees like other greedy companies.
  7. Trading is the Focus – Trading and growing your Bitcoin is at the heart of MTI, they use advanced trading software which provides consistent daily results which amount to around 10-12% monthly. This is certainly not enough to attract the average person looking for a quick buck.
  8. Open and Honest Profit Split – Each day the trading results are openly communicated and the profit is split as follows: 40% to the Members, 30% to the Trading System, 20% to the weekly binary bonuses and 10% to MTI to cover administration and affiliate bonuses.
  9. 100% Sustainable Profit Sharing – The bonuses I have mentioned are only possible if there is a positive trading result, MTI is a real business and cannot guarantee profits. If they were a scam they would have offered something more definite to attract more members.

Due to the licence agreement with the software providers MTI is unable to show the live trading. This is to prevent people from copying the trades on the Trader Platforms, thus protecting the intellectual property of the developers and ensuring sustainability of the trades for MTI Members.

Those are my 9 reasons why I know that Mirror Trading International is not a scam.

Getting any attention lately?

Screenshot 2019-10-02 at 20.47.21If you ever want to be relevant you need the attention of people. However if you don’t want to change, you will become irrelevant.

Doing the same thing over and over again, then expecting different results is what Einstein defines as absolute insanity.

If we have any desire for success we are going to need to get the attention of others and retain some of that attention. However if we are not making a conscious effort to change what we do, then there is a danger that we will become bored. It sounds extreme but if you are bored with what you are doing, you are invariably in a rut and whatever you doing will have extremely low energy. It is almost guaranteed that you will not be getting the attention you are looking for.

This is a complete waste of time and energy, rather do different things and do things that you will get excited about. If you are excited about the things you are doing, then it is almost guaranteed to get the attention you are looking for.

Mirror Trading International – Questions and Answers

Screenshot 2019-10-05 at 20.38.58Hi I am Rich Simmonds a member of Mirror Trading International ‘MTI’, I joined the company in April 2019 and I have decided to build a business using this opportunity.

Here is a link to the Q&A video if you prefer:

Why Mirror Trading International?

MTI offers you one of the best opportunities I have seen to grow your Bitcoin.

Why Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is in my opinion the strongest currency in the world, it cannot be manipulated and it is extremely scarce, there will only ever be 21 Million Bitcoin, you can’t just print some more like you can do with any other currency.

How does MTI grow Bitcoin?

Your Bitcoin does not stay with MTI, it is sent to the trading pool immediately. This pool is with the brokers and trading is done on the Forex markets using Bitcoin as the currency.

How is the trading done?

MTI has a licence for sophisticated trading software which performs trades for MTI on the brokers platform.

What about Risk?

Mirror Trading International is a real business and there is always risk. However the risk is mitigated by the software as it removes emotion and exposes small amounts of your capital by placing multiple trades and scalping quickly.

Can the live trading be viewed on the Meta Trader Platform?

The brokers does not own the trading software. In terms of this trading software licence agreement MTI members are not permitted their own broker accounts.  To protect the intellectual property of the software provider, this licence further restricts live trades from being shown to MTI members in order to prevent them from copying trades with copier software and selling the trades/signals.

How are results communicated with members?  

Members receive individual daily statements of the trading results via email and also in the members back office.

Can I withdraw my Bitcoin at any time?

Yes you can, MTI pays within 48 Hours.

Why 48 Hours, surely Bitcoin payments are instantaneous?

Remember your Bitcoin is in trade and it is working for you. The process is as follows: at the end of the trading day 0h00 GMT the statement run takes place and at that stage the withdrawal request is submitted to the Brokers and then your withdrawal is done by the brokers.

What does a package cost in MTI?

That is what sets MTI apart from the rest, there are no packages meaning you can have any amount in the system, and as long as you have a balance in the pool your account continues to trade. There are no yearly subscriptions, admin fees, etc.

Are there any withdrawal fees?

No, there are no withdrawal fees.

If there are no fees, how does the MTI company make money?

The total bonus for a trading day is divided as follows:

40% to the member

30% to the trading system – the brokers and trading system fees.

10% to the MTI company to cover the referral commissions and other admin related expenses, such as the website and support staff.

20% to the Binary Profit Sharing Bonuses

How do you know MTI is not a scheme?

Schemes have predictable results, that is what makes them so attractive to the average person. With MTI the results are unpredictable and members will only receive bonuses if the trading results are favourable.

Have the results been favourable?

Yes since the implementation of the trading software system the results have been favourable with each day producing a positive result.

Mirror trading International is a Trading and Networking company, does this mean I have to recruit to earn?

No trading is at the heart of Mirror Trading International, the idea of having to recruit is totally wrong. If MTI never got another member again, the trading would continue and members will continue to receive their daily bonuses.

Why is there a Networking component to the company?

I am not a greedy person, when I find something good and I feel others can benefit just like I have, then I would like to share the opportunity with others – this is when the networking kicks in. I love to help people and see them have a chance at becoming financially free.

Rich, are you happy with the results you are getting from MTI?

Yes I am extremely happy and I can see myself growing from strength to strength with the company.

Has MTI changed your life?

Most certainly. When I joined MTI in April, one of my biggest contracts had just come to an abrupt end and I was cash strapped. I joined with $80 and worked hard to build up to where I am today. After 6 months MTI has changed my life and now I am able to pay all my expenses from the bonuses I receive from MTI – and I even have some money left over at the end of the month.

Do you know the CEO and Founder Johan Steynberg?

Yes, just a reminder I am a normal member like anyone else. I have met Johan Steynberg on numerous occasions, he lives about 4 hours away from me in Polokwane. Probably what I like most about Johan is his desire to help people and to provide a system that can make a difference in people’s lives.

You mentioned referral bonuses earlier, how do they work?

You receive a 10% referral bonus when you introduce a new member. This is 10% of whatever they put into the trading pool and if they add more Bitcoin you will receive 10% on that difference.

I have heard that the Binary Bonus is different from any other company, how so?

Yes the MTI Binary Bonus is rather unique as it is a Bonus that is shared amongst all of the binary qualified members and it is paid weekly.

How does a person become binary qualified?

A a member you will need at least $200 in the trading pool and have personally introduced two paid up members, one in your left leg and one on your right leg.

The binary is paid weekly and for how long?

All bonuses in MTI depend on the trading results, if there are no positive results there can be no bonuses.

However with positive results binary bonuses are paid weekly to all binary qualified members, and they will continue to pay weekly.

Does this mean that through the binary bonuses you could actually earn more than what is in your weakest leg?

Yes definitely, you could have earned more than that in Binary Bonuses in about a year and a half. The trading provides the bonuses and that is what makes MTI 100% sustainable.

What advice would you have for someone who wants to use the MTI Opportunity to build a future for themselves?

Firstly be honest. One if the first things people will ask you is have you made a withdrawal? Make a withdrawal so that you can share the experience with people.

Secondly be consistent, remember people are watching you. I have had people watch me for a few weeks before they have joined the business.

Thirdly use all channels at your disposal and whatever you do try be different, posts things that you are passionate about not just the things that other people post.

What is your vision with the company going forward?

I would like to have leaders all over the world that I can share my experience with and support. For me it is vital that I have done the things that I suggest to my team. I would never expect people to do something that I have not done or I myself have achieved.

It’s about Authentic Leadership and I look forward to working with people who have a real desire for success.

According to Linkedin CEO Biggest Gap in Workforce Is Not Programming or Coding, It’s Soft Skills

action-adult-advice-1120344-v1by Justine Rex Llanes

LinkedIn needs no further introduction. It is the world’s largest professional networking website. Basically, anyone who wants to be someone needs a LinkedIn profile because someone in the industry use this network as a tool to find you.

Don’t have a LinkedIn profile yet? Then go make one now! Don’t worry, we’ll wait.

Done? So let’s move on with the article. Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn’s CEO had dropped a bomb in saying that coding (easily the trendiest skill of all to have right now) is NOT the most in-demand skill being sought after globally. Instead, these are four soft skills and that’s what we are going to share with you in this article together with solid tips on how to improve each of them.

The Big Four Soft Skills Sought After Globally According to Jeff Weiner

Skill #1: Written Communication

Let us start with your LinkedIn profile. How did you present yourself through your profile? That’s written communication right there. Whenever you express yourself (or basically anything else) via written word regardless if it’s going to be on screen or on paper, then it’ll be regarded as written communication.

So, how do you level up your written communication skills? Here are some tips:

  • Focus on clarity. Use simple words—terms that most of us would be able to understand, regardless if your readers are in the same industry that you belong to or not. We recommend preparing an outline first and filling it in. The finished product will be your first draft. Next, go back, reread it, and remove everything that is redundant and irrelevant. This simple and straightforward process can improve your written work drastically.
  • Don’t forget transitions! Your written work should be fluid. Never switch around between topics haphazardly lest you confuse and lose your readers.
  • Finally, make use of available online tools. Grammarly, for instance, is a great example. It is a grammar checker that you can use for free across different platforms. It even has a pro version with even more features.

Skill #2: Oral Communication

If you can express yourself through written words, then you must be able to push ideas forward verbally as well. In fact, Warren Buffett, one of the wealthiest men in the world, says that learning the art of public speaking can improve your career value by a whopping 50%!

Again, here are some tips on how to improve your oral communication skills:

  • As in writing, you should speak clearly too. Remember, it’s easier to lose your audience and get misinterpreted when you’re talking. There’s no way for your audience to reread what you have just said, and of course, there’ll be no pause and play buttons. That being said, this leads us to the next tip.
  • Talk about your most important points first. That way, even if you lose the attention of your audience mid-way, you’d have already expressed what you really want to say already. The rest is simply details, supporting arguments, examples, and further explanation.
  • Practice, practice, practice! Grab every opportunity to socialize and talk with other people. Plus points if you can practice on a slightly larger crowd and ask for their feedback.

Skill #3: Team Building

Aside from honing your communication skills, you should also invest in team-building skills. By the way, if you really have mastered the previous two soft skills, then you will be happy to know that they can be utilized to improve this skill too.

However, other than learning how to communicate with your teammates efficiently and knowing which method of communication works best, what are the other tips that one can practice to improve their team-building game? Here they are:

  • Build on trust. Trust, such an easy thing to say, but not always a simple thing to give. However, as a team leader, you should recognize that you are simply part of a bigger team and that without them and without trusting them, you will never accomplish whatever project or goal you’ve set out to do. You can start by giving your members to take on more important tasks and make crucial decisions. Not only will your members feel trusted, but this will also give them a sense of responsibility and much-needed confidence to tackle harder and bigger tasks as you move forward and your team gets bigger.
  • Foster friendships within the team. There are some hardcore and competitive team leaders and project managers out there who might frown on this tip, but according to Adam Grant of the New York Times, it’s actually better to foster friendships at work. That’s because, to quote the article “when friends work together, they’re more trusting and committed to one another’s success.”

Skill #4: Leadership Skills

Finally, let’s move on to the last skill: leadership. And just like the previous tip, did you know that having excellent communication and team-building skills will also build upon your leadership skills? They all work and complement each other!

Here are some tips on how to improve this skill:

  • Respect your people. We’re not going to change the tone of this article into a discussion about faith, but the quote: “treat others the way you want to be treated” is a good start to learn a thing or two about respect. And if you respect your members, they will come to respect you too because you’ve earned it.
  • Display your passion. Wondering why your team’s completely demotivated? Look yourself in the mirror and gauge how passionate and motivated you to look. If you’re staring at a zombie, then there’s no wonder why your people are starting to work like zombies too. All zombie viruses, after all, are contagious.

Finally, want to really level up on EVERY skill mentioned? Here’s one last tip: STUDY.

There are a lot of different online courses out there that you can access in order to improve on the skills you already have and learn new ones that you don’t have. In fact, we’ve found an interesting online course for each of the soft skills we’ve mentioned in this article today. Here they are:

For improving your written communication skills, you should try the “Write Like a Boss: Master Your Business Writing Skills” course by Elizabeth Goins, a business communication expert who personally writes for Fortune 500 executives.

For your oral communication skills, we highly recommend “The Complete Communication Skills Master Class for Life” by TJ Walker, a bestselling author and former President of the National Speakers Association, NYC.

And finally, for both team-building and leadership skills, we definitely recommend for you to check out Udemy’s “Management Skills – Team Leadership Skills Masterclass 2019”.

We bid you good luck in all your learning pursuits. Looking forward to learning again with you soon!
