4) Being ahead of the game:
A 50-year old manager recalled his past when it was difficult to learn Business English.
Day and night he read from his old text books, unsure if even his pronunciation was correct. Then he practiced by watching movies (that was the closest to hearing a native speaker.)
His hard work paid off. Soon enough he was the only staff member who could write emails to a foreign partner. Today he is the head of business development in a multinational company dealing in imports and exports.
He wishes there was someone who could have taught him at the beginning.
“If there is a chance to learn, take it. Keep improving. One day, your position will need it, and you will have the skills to supply it.”
In today’s competitive corporate world, to keep growing is to nurture your people. Your people are your strength. Advance their work skills and merge them with solid English capabilities.
Be that leader who gives their employees an opportunity to progress. You’ll be surprised how much your training investment will repay you and your company.
Now is the time.
