How To Get Promoted

by Marquette Turner

in News & Views

A study at Stanford Business School examined the qualities that companies look for in promoting young managers toward senior executive positions, particularly the position of Chief Executive Officer.

The study concluded that the two most important qualities required for great success were, first, the ability to put together and function as part of a team. Since all work is ultimately done by teams, and the managers’ output is the output of the team, the ability to select team members, set objectives, delegate responsibility and finally, get the job done, was central to success in management.

The second quality was found to be the ability to function well under pressure, especially in a crisis. Keeping your cool in a crisis means to practice patience and self-control under difficult or disappointing circumstances.
