Experience counts for a lot when it comes to developing the skills to lead a workforce.

London School of Marketing has released its latest blog post, explaining how the HR skills developed on a marketing degree provide graduates with all the skills and knowledge they need to effectively lead a team. The post emphasises the importance of being able to identify various styles of employee and takes a light-hearted look at how to manage different workers.

Chrishanthi Ranwaweera, LSM student supervisor, said: “Experience counts for a lot when it comes to developing the skills to lead a workforce.

"However, taking the time to complete an HR degree helps you to develop a broad understanding of how to manage a variety of professionals, which is extremely useful if you’re planning to launch a career in HR.”

The blog post identifies a number of worker types, including the Grafter, who is reliable and hardworking but prefers to follow orders than take their own initiative, and the Ideas man or woman, who is a fountain of creative thinking but sometimes struggles to stay on track. The post also identifies the Mountain Climber, who is ambitious and driven but can be easily frustrated, and the Introvert, who often takes a meticulous approach to their work, but may be reluctant to share ideas as part of a team.
