What to look for?

Most people would agree that the earlier people start learning how to do something, the better they should become at doing it. As an example, it is considered a truism that to produce a world-class athlete or musician, people need to start playing in early childhood — age 3 is often quoted as a typical starting age for future stars in tennis, golf, music and so on.

This early-bird-gets-the-worm maxim is true for most professions. People who were successful selling as teenagers will usually be good sales people for the rest of their lives. People who wrote computer programs early on will have tremendous advantage over those who just played computer games.

Similarly, individuals who grew up in families where members worked in skilled professions — whether doctors, lawyers, carpenters, policemen or entrepreneurs — will almost certainly gain more knowledge about the vocation than those who don’t.

The indicators below are the most common ones used to determine the possibility of future success in management.
