We all plan to start the new year with great hope and optimism and this is no different from starting a new job.  With research predicting that 30% of tasks and 60% of occupations could be computerised, robotics threatens to eliminate thousands of jobs, career success will depend on the added value of human qualities. It is essential to use emotional intelligence and to empathise with your colleagues.

Our top tips would be:

  • Celebrate team success
  • Build your professional network
  • Ask for advice and support but remember to give back twice as much support to others as you gain for yourself
  • Welcome feedback – it will make you stronger
  • Give realistic deadlines and be reliable by meeting your own
  • Communicate clearly
  • Don’t underestimate low-level tasks, they make the world go round and if done well and with grace they can make or break your working life
