Introducing new blogger: Jason Kiesau

- Jason Kiesau, Leadership and Talent Development manager for Aureon HR, writes about success skills on IowaBiz.com.

Greetings Central Iowa!

My name is Jason Kiesau and I am the Leadership and Talent Development Manager at Aureon HR, Inc. and author of FOCUSED – Your Future Starts Now! and Leading with Style for Senior Living Professionals. The role of our team at Merit is to provide to our clients’ leaders, managers, and workforce, the training, coaching and learning opportunities that support them in achieving their goals in alignment with their organizational goals. We believe this starts with what we like to call Success Skills Mastery.

I’m on a mission to forever change the term “soft skills” to Success Skills, because without them you won’t succeed. It doesn’t matter if you are leader, manager, or an employee; you can be the smartest, most talented, and the hardest working person in the room, but if you lack Success Skills you will have limited success and will never fulfill your potential.

Success Skills Mastery will be the subject I write about for IowaBiz.com.

The three most critical Success Skills I will focus on are:

  1. Self-Management
  2. Relationship Building
  3. Strategic Planning and Goal Setting

Regardless of what you do for your employer or what board you serve on, pursuing Success Skills Mastery will quickly raise your value and make you more effective; leading to greater success.

To be successful we must:

  • Manage our attitudes, emotions, actions, and reactions and adapt them to people and situations as needed.
  • Create win/win situations and build mutually beneficial relationships by understanding others’ needs and meeting them where they are.
  • Understand strategic thinking and set and measure long- and short-term goals that align with our vision and strategic plan.

I’ve been fascinated with personal, professional and leadership development since my early 20s. I am passionate about helping people live a high-quality of life by confidently pursuing and achieving meaningful results. Prior to joining Merit six years ago, I was a strategic partner with Profiles International helping clients hire the right people and a business coach with E-Myth Benchmark (now Benchmark Business Group) working with small business owners all over the United States, supporting them in achieving their strategic objective by working ON their business, not IN their business.

Thank you for your time and attention in reading this. I look forward to contributing to IowaBiz.com and supporting your pursuit towards Success Skills Mastery! Please let me know if our Leadership and Talent Development Team at Aureon HR, Inc. can support you in achieving your goals.
