Climbing the slippery career ladder

The prospects for Sameer Africa may not be that promising given the compe from cheap sub-standard Chinese imports, but the CEO piece in the BDA today is timely. Any of it applicable to me? Definitely,
  1. Diplomacy: having graduated from the school of call it as i see it, this has been a hard one to get into, but needs be.
  2. Indispensable: Try this and it will ruin the period before you go on holidays, the period when you come back from hols and limits career movements within company.
  3. Life-long learning: sound boring, but if one imagines that mobile phones were mass introduced 10 years and today are owned by 40% of the world's population, one has to keep learning to stay in touch with the world around you. I have found that after around 9 months one should everything there is to know about the job role they signed upto, after that its all about learning and applying new skills.

Well you better otherwise he/she will only be upset if he/she finds out.

I actually prefer it especially during this season of politicking.
