              Be honest and helpful in all your work.

 

4. Build good relationships and alliances

              Join groups and organisations and make an effort to strengthen your social and business networks.

 

5. Continually learn new skills

              Keep upgrading your qualifications and make the most of all relevant new training opportunities.
