As a part of one of the Top MBA College in Hyderabad, I come across one question a lot. Why MBA? Did the top business tycoons in the world went to MBA College before they started their business. So why? Well! If they have decided to learn everything the hard way, not necessarily everyone could do that. MBA colleges do not make business tycoons but they show them the path and an understanding level to start walking towards the right direction.

Today, I am laying down a simple yet effective approach to coach oneself to success. Remember MBA Colleges in Hyderabad or anywhere can guide you to success but you need to walk on that path alone. So here are some tips to make the road easy for you:

  1. Know what you want – As simple as it sounds, it is very difficult to know and accept what you want in life amidst all the insecurities of life. But it is easy to identify what do not make you happy and eliminating them one bit at a time. Try to identify the root cause of your happiness. Once you are able to do that, the rest of the bit would be fairly simple.
  2. Set a Measurable Goal – Now, you are clear what you want to do in life. But it is the bigger goal. Break It down to small measurable goals. For example, you must need to learn a new skill or meet new people related to some fields. Make a list and put deadlines.
  3. Take Action –Now that you have set the goals, prioritize each task and start working towards them one bit at a time. As soon as you scratch off one task, the confidence would begin to build up.
  4. Be Passionate – You won’t be able to convince anybody of your dreams till the time you feel passionately about them. Be passionate about what you are doing and the result will start flowing automatically.
  5. Be Persistent – Now the most important lesson. “Failure is just the first step towards the beginning of success.” So be persistent and do not give up if anything at all goes wrong. Think about Walt Disney, He was turned down 302 times before he got financing for his dream. Now, it is the happiest place in Earth.”

 

A journey from a technical expert to Manager through a PG Diploma Course in Business Management

“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”

― Theodore Roosevelt

So, finally you have decided to stop being a technical guy and enter into management and for that you have enrolled yourself in a PG Diploma Course in Business Management. While that is a great step forward in your career, it is  always better what to expect in this amazing yet difficult journey from a technical expert to a Manager.

Today I have come up with the list of skills that you would be learning in your course and how to put those skills to use:

  1. Delegation – The foremost skill you would be need in your new role as a manager is the skill of delegation. So far you have been concerned with the responsibilities that had been assigned to you. But now, as a manager you need to see a bigger picture and has to distribute the responsibility which has been provided to you amongst your subordinates. The skill of delegation would teach you to make a 360 degree analysis of your team which would in turn help you to decide the best fits for particular tasks.
  2. Briefing  – Next in line is briefing. As a manager, you need not do anything yourself but make your team acquainted with what you need them to do. Now, a caveat over here is that it is much more difficult than it seems. Till the time you are perfectly sure about what needs to be done, you can not guide your subordinates towards doing that task and therefore, the window for hit and trial is really a narrow one for you.
  3. Motivation – As a manager, your success would now be measured in terms of the success of those who are working under you. How will you make sure that they are working to the best of their capabilities. Yes, by constantly motivating them. Self-confidence would be a must in this case for starters. You need to have a positive energy around you all the time so that you can fill others with the same passion you had while you used to work as a technical guy.
  4. Communication – This I guess is one of the foremost skill you would be needing. I mean, you can’t keep doing the work yourself. As a manager, you now are an important bridge between the client and your team. If you do not have sound communication skills, you won’t be able to understand what is need at the client end and would fail miserably in explaining your team what you need them to do as well. Strong personality and good communication skills are the key to become a good manager.

Today I am laying down 5 tips to make the transition to become a Manager smoother and easier:

  1. Do a personal SWOT analysis – The foremost thing that happens when you become a manager is that your team is dependent on you for their career. In order to lead a team, you must be well aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Do a thorough SWOT analysis and list down what needs to be improved rather than waiting for a feedback from your team at the end of the year.
  2. A big no to technical work – As tempting as the technical work sounds to you, you have to resist from it no matter what. This is the work you are most comfortable at doing, but this is your team’s responsibility now. This doesn’t mean you should refrain from pitching wherever required but on daily basis is a big no.
  3. Find a Mentor –It is always good to have sound guidance from an experienced professional. Look for people in your organisation who have gone through a similar kind of transition as you have. He/She could always give you advice in terms of challenges faced and lessons learnt. As part of the same organisation, some procedures remain the same across all the sectors, so it is better to have a go to person whenever you feel stuck somewhere rather than figuring out all by yourself right from day one.
  4. One on One meetings with all team members – This is important. Meet all your team members personally and make an effort to know their interests and strong areas. Make thorough notes of their expectations from you. This would help you better access the distribution of roles among the team. Remember a happy team is a successful team.
  5. Keep learning new skills – Becoming a manager does not mean there is no room for improvement left or there is no need for you to learn new skill. Learn new type of management skills but doing everything all at once could be a bit overwhelming so i would encourage you to pick one thing at a time, learn the skill well and then move on to the next one.

Importance of Self-Confidence in order to become an influential leader A guide by leaders in PG Diploma Courses

“Self Confidence is the most attractive quality a person can have.

How can anyone see how great you are if you can’t see it yourself?”

Confidence in oneself is the root of all good things happening in one’s life. Many people do think that PG Diploma Courses are not equivalent to that of a degree. It is a very wrong assumption!

Post Graduate Diploma Courses are as good as what you learn in a degree course. Any form of knowledge be it coming from a diploma or a degree or an online blog article is worthless till the time you are confident enough to use it the right way for your own benefit.

So today, I have come up with few reasons to help you understand why self-confidence is important for your growth irrespective of what course you have taken up:

  1. No one would believe in your thought till the time you believe it yourself

For this I would encourage to put yourself in the shoe of others who are dealing with you. Would you like to believe in a person  who is nervous, overly apologetic and fumbling all the time? So how do you think others would take you seriously when you do the same. Lack of confidence in one’s knowledge and capabilities is what makes others doubt their worth too.

  1. Failure to inspire confidence in other

If you are not confident in yourself, how can you expect others to be confident on you. Only a confident person with a positive energy all around him can generate a wave of positivity around him/her. With self confidence, people not only would instill confidence in you for your own work but also would come to seek guidance in whatever they are working on.

  1. No self confidence means no self esteem

Self confidence instill a sense of self esteem in a person. Till the time you are not sure what you are doing is right, how will you take pride in it. As per Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory, self esteem is the fourth most important needs an employee crave for after being satisfied in terms of psychology, safety and social life.

  1. No self confidence means no self efficacy

Self confidence instills a sense of self efficacy. We see ourselves as achievers mastering skills and living upto our own expectations as well as of those who depend upon us. This instills a sense of faith in us that if we will continuously keep learning new things and working hard, we  would succeed in life no matter what. This sense of optimism helps us to take up difficult challenges passionately and being persistent in all facets of setbacks.
