What's On

Bosses and their right-hand men/ women need to develop tacit understanding in order to work effectively together. Tacit understanding comes from good communication skills with the boss and bridging the gap between the boss and all levels of staff by disseminating and collecting messages precisely and effectively. The role of right-hand man/ woman also requires systematic organization when dealing with daily routines and special projects. Most important of all, one of the essential attributes is to be able to solve problems when difficult situation arises.
