5 Skills You Need To Develop for Success - Sophia Belnap - Blog

5 Skills You Need To Develop for Success

If you want to be successful in the workplace or life overall, there are specific skills you need to develop. This set of personal abilities can set you apart from others and help you go above and beyond your greatest expectations. Personal skills allow you to express your thoughts and feelings easily and effectively, thus improving your ability to handle any situation. Here are the five top skills you should concentrate on advancing.

1. Communication

Have you ever dealt with someone who didn't listen to anything you said but expected you to pay attention to them? This scenario can be frustrating for both parties and can make doing a job challenging, which is why proper communication skills are vital.

Communication encompasses the capacity to speak, listen and write with purpose, whether in person, via email or by phone. When someone is speaking to you, you should make a conscious effort to listen and understand what the other person is telling you and respond appropriately.

This skill is particularly useful during negotiations training. To reach an agreement, two or more parties need to hear each other's sides and weigh the pros and cons. Everyone needs to have an open mind rather than believing their ideas are the best.

2. Problem Solving

Identifying problems and figuring out the best solutions can help you get through life much easier. Employers look for candidates who possess this skill, as they want their team to be self-reliant and able to thrive on their own.

To successfully solve an issue, you need to fully identify the problem, which may involve researching in-depth factors. Once you've figured out the root causes, you should think about possible solutions, maybe even contacting others for their opinions on the matter. Evaluate each resolution and make a plan to implement the best course of action to remedy the problem. While most people stop at this point, it's important to go one step further and assess how well your solution worked so you can try something else if need be and learn from the experience.

3. Organization

Staying organized is easier said than done. To ensure your work maintains order, you need to keep up with an organizational strategy. If you procrastinate, you'll end up working in complete chaos and have a difficult time catching up on the structure needed for success. For example, suppose you have paperwork to file for every customer you talk to but wait until the end of the day to organize each file. In that case, the process can become confusing, overwhelming and time-consuming, which may stress you out.

4. Attention to Detail

Overlooking minor details can be detrimental to completing tasks. It's not always about the big picture when completing work. If you ignore the small things, you may do something incorrectly along the way and have to redo the entire project, which your manager would not appreciate. 

Instead, make sure you review guidelines frequently to ensure you're staying on task. It's much easier to alter your course early on in an assignment rather than waiting until it's due or nearly complete.

5. Leadership

Being able to manage others is highly desirable to employers. This skill can help you stand out and be a valuable asset to any team.

Leadership is more than just being the head of a group. It involves training each person and ensuring they are thriving. If they're having trouble, a manager should be willing to figure out ways to help them succeed.


While other skills can also help you thrive, these abilities are some of the most desired. If you apply them in everything you do, you'll have no problem obtaining your highest goals.
