Based on my personal experience there are multiple components that will be important to take a look at throughout your journey. My top 3 would be:
- Manage your workload by prioritizing what is critical based on your goals as well as your department/team goals and your OKRs (Objectives and Key Results). Pay attention to the areas where you can generate tangible impact and focus on those. Throughout my journey I noticed that even with the best efforts to support, without ruthless prioritization you can burn out. Determination between Urgency and Importance is helpful - there is a great chapter on this in Stephen Covey's book '7 habits of highly effective people'
- Constantly learn and own your development journey. In our information age it's important to keep learning even after wrapping up with your degree. Industries are continuously changing and if you want to succeed it's extremely important to look ahead and stay in line with new trends. Be sure to be proactive about your development, seek for advice, mentorship opportunities, get insights from your manager, peers or colleagues to see how to succeed further.
- Build relationships with your stakeholders continuously, set expectations and communicate clearly.
Wish you best of luck in your journey in business management!
