As a member of management, the most important skill beyond the obvious technical ones is how to manage people. You can easily be a standout if you learn and practice the right skills because most managers use the most ineffective approach to managing people, that of top-down command and control.

I’ll go with Supriya. We shouldnt give room for emotions,sentiment. The decision should be unbiased one and should be faourable on both mgt and employee side:)

well my frnd i beg to disagree wid u. emotions r nt like our clothes which v can take off whenever v wish.they r deeply ingrained in us.moreover they are contagious.wherever v go people get affected by our emotions.the best way out then is nt suppression of emotions bt effective management...........frst v need to b aware of our emotions then only v can direct our emotions in right direction......daniel goleman has done right job thru emotional must go thru it........

Man-Management & Communication skills are a pre-requiste to ensure survival. Now , if you wanna be fittest of them all , then you would need to evolve your other skills as well. such as Analytical, Business Acumen, Focus & Learning skills, time-management skills etc...The list could go on , but if you start with these in a disciplined fashion , your role in the organization would automatically ingrain in you the skills required.

Why they hire you !
Simple....." They don't hire you for the sake of it,they hire you so that you can make Profit(fullfilling your KRA's) to them.
You want to be the fittest : When you give them more than the Profit expected from you !
Here the meaning of Profit is :
For HR - Recruit the best who gives best ROI to the company.
For Sales - Sales on Traget or one who earns max incentives by Sales.
For Marketing - Getting the best Market Share
For Operations - ZERO error in work
For HOD - Manganing the above as one unit.
For CEO - Making all above understand the Vision and mission of company and give new business models and best turnover.
The Survival of fittest is different for different unit and work. :)

Dear my opinion, survival of the fittest is there in every sphere of human life. It's a fight to survive or to be successful in this world in the midst of all adversities. Problem solving capability and quick & right decision making capacity are very essential for surviving in the Management field (not only in mgt, all fields). Like 'Necessity is the Mother of all Inventions', we search for solutions, whenever we are in trouble or face problems. As every problem has a solution in itself, we always find out a way to survive or overcome the problem. Is it not the way we survive?

For that, understand yourself, I mean, your weaknesses, strengths, have all emotions (without emotions, you will merely a log), admit your mistakes, have your own opinions (of course no imitations).....stand on earth (be humble)......don't fly in the air (no headweight).....stay with your your a good friend (a friend in need is a friend indeed)...acquire all human Socretes said, spend half an hour a day for thinking and planning your future course....definitely you will be successful.

People management, crisis management and xenocentrism. These are the 3 most critical issues. You will not only survive but excel.

Here, the members those who have subscribed to this particular thread are somewhere or the other true and realistic. But why we intelligent people make things so complicated, why do we forget our basics, like every action has equal and opposite reaction...i.e. if I don't behave properly with my employees or colleagues there response will be obviously not good.
The most important thing to be discussed here and keep that in mind always is
1) Be yourself
2) Live each and every moment of ur life (Accepting all Ups & Downs.....U may laugh latter in your life on urself)
3) Learn from ur failures & always accept them
4) And face each and every situation fearfully.........u don't have to fear to anyone in this world..........for all this Belive in yourself
Keep this simple funda in ur life & enjoyeeee!

In response to SPriya's post: I beleive, she has gone through tougher situations at work. But, as long as we are in an Organization, we need to deal effectively with 4Ms: Man, Machine, Material & Money. However, the most valuable of these resources being Men (Human Resource), managing them is a specialized art. We need to understand their Emotions so as to handle them "with care". Organizational Behaviour is a vast area; please go through the books on these topics by "Stephen Robbibs or Fred Luthans". Also a few others by our own Shiv Khera, & Stephen Covey, Dale Carnegie etc have changed personalities (my personal experience!). Never try to get liked by all, depict a Personality that would be naturally liked by all!

Today's ever-changing Corporate World has shaped itself in such a environment that the professionals living in it have to become multi-taskers.
Friends, some of you have really quoted good skills to survive in this corporate world like Communication, EQ, People skills, etc. I also think that this skills are required to survive but what I feel is that if you are presentable i.e. you have a good command over your and a good body language then your 90% task is done as you will not fall back on your attitude front.

After spending 5 yrs in recruitment, i believe in corporate world you need to handle smartly the things with little work in right direction. One needs to be clear what ur managment expects from u....both management and in individual expectations should match upto a certain limit...I think if both learn that...that can be "Survival of the fittest".
30th September 2008 From United States , Oakland
This is an absolute MANTRA for now days to climb up the success ladder of corporate. We being talking about to be fittest one needs to handle thing smartly and etc..A fit one will always handle things smartly.

But question is how to do this? What are the essentials to do it? What are the secrets? What is wrong and what is right? Actually the answer to all above questions is that there is no answer.

So far what I have observed that itís not only hard skills on the job which makes a successful career itís actually a smart combination of soft skills too. Now when we say soft skills it can be smart time management, infectious enthusiasm, graceful attitude, strong language hold, nice corporate finesse, powerful dressing, and etc. these all skills can be tested right from one client lunch too board room meetings. People with these all attributes with sound knowledge of their work can only survive in corporate or they will make others stay comfortable whom they want to stay...after all itís a cut throat competition out there..:lol:
