How Well Positioned is Your Career?


Wherever you are in your career - how well positioned are you?

Beyond technical skills and the obvious of course.

To get a job and keep it, you need more than technical skills.

In October 2019 I was asked to be part of a panel on career positioning in the digital age alongside representatives from the largest banks and financial institutions in Nigeria including Ecobank.

Before the panel, I was given the opportunity to present my thoughts on the most important skills for CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) candidates and holders to keep in mind - what I describe as the X-Factor.

The X-Factor is emotional intelligence.

I shared the different components of emotional intelligence and outlined simple steps the audience could take to improve theirs.

Emotional intelligence is like a muscle and it needs to be worked out. 

Emotional intelligence accounts for nearly 90% of what sets high performers apart from peers with similar technical skills and knowledge (Goleman).
