BS Business Administration: Skills and Factors

By admin Thursday, December 24th, 2009

When I was a teenager, my father encouraged me to take a business-related college course like BS Business Administration.  I knew he wanted me to follow in his footsteps, but I respectfully declined and marched to the beat of a different drum.

One of the reasons why I politely refused was because I felt I wasn’t the right kind of person for that kind of course.  Well, what exactly is the “right” kind of person, you may ask?  Let’s find out.

Required Skills and Traits

Leaders and managers need to be organized.  I know of someone who had this knack for compartmentalizing things in such a way that kept his entire business system running smoothly.  Being organized helps lead to high productivity levels for both you and the folks under you.

A mentor of mine once told me that ninety-five percent of business plans don’t go exactly as planned.  Thus, you will need a measure of patience and flexibility to skillfully deal with sudden changes.

Manage the Numbers, Befriend the People

Business administrators also need to attend to more mundane things, such as cash flow and accounting.  You’ve got to know where your money is coming from and where it’s going.  Good math and computer skills will be a big help here.

In a previous article, I mentioned that business and relationships were inherently linked.  If you’ve got the skills to get along with others, more people will want to do business with you.  So listen well, find out what people’s needs are and help them solve their problems.  If you do these, you’re practically doing good business already.
