(Replied by SHEROES Coach via SHEROES Career Helpline) Hi Pallavi ,\n\nThank you for reaching out ! \n\nThere are certainly listings on our job board for the profile you are looking at - as a first step you can take a quick look at them by clicking on "work from home jobs " on our job board. You can further filter these to be relevant to you by adding more search tags for example on the field you want to work in. Say searching " work from home quality analyst " for quality analyst jobs.\n\nWas there something specific about a job profile you wanted to discuss ?

Avani asked

Hi Kuppu - what are critical sot skills that can help people get into leadership positions?
19 Jan 2017, 05:40pm
Hello Avani! Thank you for asking that question. I will soon post a detailed answer, for this is my most favorite of questions. I would first want to share a few important thoughts on "leadership positions". There are a few innate or natural qualities that are present in people that involuntarily catapults them to leadership roles. The softskills that become critical to get into leadership positions, according to me, are only honed. So, while there are certain areas that can be worked on, there are several other skills that those that go on to become leaders are BORN with. 1) Right on top of my list is "emotional intelligence". It is not just the skills + hard work, it also takes a lot of understanding and analysis of situation, people, process, and being clear about your goals. Simply put, along with using our brains, we have to use our heart too. Those that can manage their own emotions as well as others' around them become better leaders. Hint: Which is also why women make far better leaders than men do in similar roles. 2) Listen, watch, and make notes: In this era of extensive networking and abundance of opportunities, it is important and has become very easy to "listen" to influencers around us that also make good leaders. They have strong and informed opinions and a specific area of expertise. We can learn a lot by just listening and making note of their unique qualities. In communication, listening is most important and is also most ignored. 3) I see this in my everyday life: there are a lot of us who want to climb the metaphorical ladder and move to leadership roles. However, not enough time is spent on making your own big picture, and chopping them into short-term goals. It is quite obvious that most people who later go on to become leaders, spend considerable amount of time "alone" focusing on what they would want to achieve. Invest time in yourself, understand what makes you happy and keep yourself ahead of everybody else. FOCUS. 4) Time management. This is a very critical skill and it is quite obvious why. Those that manage their time well inspire me a lot. Because they manage their work well, and also find time to help others and uplift them, and are impressively good at multi-tasking. Are we still surprised to know that most leaders wake up early in the morning? :-) (I am thinking of Dr Kiran Bedi and Sushmita Sen as I write this.) 5) Be articulate and clear in your communication. Exhibit the best of body language. Be clean and tidy - clean habits and a presentable personality always earn the bonus cookies. I will keep my promise and will write in detail about each of these listed above. Here is one essential thought, Avani: Those that become leaders DO NOT start with thinking "Now, how do I become a leader? Or, what should I do to get into leadership roles." Instead, They identify and focus on their passion, invest time in honing their skills, and work on becoming best at what they are now only 'good' at. If you have more questions, feel free to ask! Wishing you luck, and lots of love Kuppu

Jhelum asked

Hi Kuppu, I worked as a Technical writer for 7 years took a break of 2 years and then resumed work by taking Content writing assignments. But the hurdle is that sometimes my work falls short of the client expectations. How should I enhance my skills ? Should I do Masters in English or similar other courses ?
