Problem-solving, especially when looking at it creatively, goes hand in hand with communication and leadership. Using logic, alongside your imagination, to make sense of a situation and develop an intelligent solution is critical in many industries. In fact, the best problem solvers actively anticipate potential future problems and act to prevent them or to mitigate their effects. 

Talk the talk

It is fantastic if you can code – but can you express yourself too?  

Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, your communication skills can always be improved. A combination of both written word and oral communication produces successful communication. Your digital body language tells your manager, your team and all your other stakeholders who you are as a person. Are you making the right impression with the tone you adopt in emails and texts? Does your tone replicate how you speak to people in a zoom call? With communication being on top of the wish list for most employers in 2021, what are you doing to improve the way you interact with others?

Leadership is not just for leaders

There are so many leadership lessons that anyone, at any level, can benefit from. Authenticity, prioritisation and analytical analysis are all traits that are associated with leadership and are all traits that your next employer is looking for. If you can bring people together with passion and for a common purpose you can help, make any company a better place to work for.

Creativity is intelligence having fun

We choose the attitudes we have now

Professionalism, and how this links through to a company’s core values, is one of the main attribute's employers look for during the interview process. It is becoming all too regular to see professionalism dropping off an employee's radar when working from home, or in an environment other than the company office. At the end of the day, professionalism and confidence are vital to the success of every organisation.
