  • What are your most important takeaways from the program?

The most important takeaway from the program that I got out of it were the networking opportunities. It was interesting to see other students in similar fields or meeting other students that live in the same state/city as you. Being able to discuss the struggles of being a working adult, parent, and student with someone else was helpful. Finding students that were also top executives and/or business owners was refreshing because I could network with others going through similar obstacles within their business. This gave me multiple perspectives on how to tackle things I was going through within my own business.

  • What practices have you been able to apply in your job?

I would say that the practice that I’ve been able to apply to my company is implementing more structure and changing the way I manage my team to increase productivity and efficiency.

  • How have these practices impacted your ability to lead?

These practices have made me a better manager. I’ve been able to do a better job measuring productivity within the team but also recognizing strengths and weaknesses within my team as well. These practices have allowed me to analyze company structure, development, and productivity to determine what needed to be amended.

  • What have been your most significant areas of growth?

Due to being able to analyze my team better, I’ve been able to see the gaps in my company. I’ve added four additional team members to my team and promoted three.

  • Tell us about any promotions you have received or changes in jobs, responsibilities, etc.

Since I own my own company, there aren’t many promotions that can be given to me. However, I did add a business partner to my company who oversees the day-to-day operations. I’ve been able to add additional services to add value to my clients.

  • What advice would you give to an incoming JWMI student?
  1. Read the fine print and make sure you understand the program you are signing up for. This MBA is not a traditional MBA and once you start you won’t be able to transfer to another MBA “traditional” program.
  2. Understand the time commitment and financial investment you are signing up for
  3. Don’t start a business, go through a divorce, and move cities with your children while going through or starting your MBA program.
  4. Time management is going to be imperative to your success.

Thanks,

Rowena

COLLAPSE

Great Post Thomas!

Communication is key in all areas of life and that’s certainly true in the workplace. Mastering effective communication skills and the art of persuasion will benefit you for the rest of your life, as it will help you influence more people and persuade customers and/or clients to use your products or services. Knowing your audience, building credibility, using positive body language, and focusing on the benefits are a few ways you can master the art of communication and persuasion in the business world.

According to ryanestis.com, “How much time do you spend every week presenting new ideas? Working on getting buy-in from your boss for a special project? Competing for new clients? We all spend an increasingly significant portion of our workdays drawing on our persuasive communications skills to build relationships, earn trust, and align to shared objectives.

These communications skills, along with other “soft skills” such as creativity and critical thinking, will only become more critical as we move further along into the Fourth Industrial Revolution. These transferable skills are essential to keeping up with the pace of change as our technical skills become obsolete faster and faster.

Your ability to communicate effectively, persuade and influence directly affects your success at work and opportunity for impact in this environment. Here are five ideas that will help you develop your persuasive communication skills.

  1. Abandon Negative Stereotypes
  2. Focus on Being Helpful
  3. Provide Context
  4. Plan for Overcoming Resistance
  5. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Persuasive communication skills are crucial to working from a position of influence. Developing your communication skills will help you navigate your work more effectively, build better relationships and thrive during increasingly challenging and changing times.”

Good luck with your future success, you will succeed!
