Career – Activity: Develop Work SkillsTop 10 Skills and Qualities Employers Want

There are many skills that are important for work. A good starting place for developing work skills is the Skills Guide at Illinoisworknet.

  1. Job skills are specific to an occupation, like filing or writing a report.
  2. Transferable skills are general work skills like the ability to use a computer program or attention to detail.
  3. Self management skills are personal qualities like being analytical or reliable.

The Daily PlanIt Development Center also has pages to develop skills in: Communication, Goal Setting, Time Management, and Computers. Customer Service, Meetings, Telephone Tips, Teamwork, Work Ethic are included at the Work Skills page of the Daily PlanIt Sticky Wiki, as well as lots of links to assess skills. Master basic work skills, then develop Leadership skills like Constructive Feedback, Conflict Resolution, Delegation, and Team Building.

  1. Assess your skills.
  2. Choose the skill that would provide the most benefit if improved.
  3. Choose the best way to increase the skill level.
  4. Choose the next skill to improve.

This week, I will choose one work skill to improve, and set a goal for developing it.

This is one of the weekly activities for a Year of Personal Development.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
