#SCS2020 Days of assessment centres are numbered // bloody YES!
#SCS2020 Make your own luck. Don’t wait for an SCS job to be advertised.
#SCS2020 Right. Lunch is finished and off we go for the second half.
#SCS2020 learn from experience and feedback. Push for feedback. Be persistent.
#SCS2020 Change your perspective. Believe that you *are* the best person for the job. You *are* the job. Your not a candidate.
#SCS2020 Be sufficiently ‘strategic’. Get used to think in broad strategic terms. Real examples, impacts, not outputs.
#SCS2020 breaking for lunch… Hmmm… Hate standing and eating. Not natural.
#SCS2020 PSG skills are not enough for SCS. Interviews tend to be more job specific.
RT @AlicePilia: @Baskers yes please, it’s very interesting…( and deprassing, but still interesting!) #SCS2020
#SCS2020 have 2b realistic about the times we are in. CS is shrinking, less jobs, less opportunity 2get experience outside your area

#SCS2020 need skills in influencing, stakeholder management and delivery in the SCS
#SCS2020 SCS leaders, it’s not about telling people what to do, it’s about being an enabled leader.
#SCS2020 Operational delivery is intellectually challenging, emotionally demanding but rewarding. Got to be committed to Customer Service
#SCS2020 you can’t go on a course to learn leadership.Get experience, deal with uncertain situations. Deal with complexity & make it simple
