Academic curriculum does not prepare you adequately to face realities of workplace challenges. Understanding your own personality and learning to match your behaviour with that of others is of paramount importance. In addition to your own capabilities, your personality and how you adjust your behaviour to that of the people you interact when working in teams, projects or assignments will make or break your career aspirations.
In this book you will learn about different functions of any organisation and how human behaviour will impact your performance. Customers, suppliers, peers behaviours and reactions affect the value you add to the outcome of your efforts and that of others. Managing your time and finances efficiently in the early days of your career will determine your financial security and personal happiness.
