Situational awareness, good manners and the ability to communicate are the keys to success

January 24, 2016 | Phil Fersht

Following on from our recent discussion on Social Intelligence, I drew some real inspiration from this recent speech from Bollywood actor R. Madhavan, who touches on three critical elements for success (combined with your sheer determination to succeed and to seize opportunities):

  1. Situational Awareness: Being completely aware of everything that is going on around you at all times;
  2. Good Manners: Being courteous and pleasant at all times really helps makes the most out of opportunities when they come along;
  3. Strong Communication: Being able to express your desires, capabilities and determination to be successful will help you maximize opportunities when they come knocking.
