Point Roberts, Washington (PressExposure) January 06, 2009 -- One of the similarities of a new job to a new family is learning the culture by spending time, building new relationships, asking questions, understanding the dynamics of the company. The basic professional skills of listening and learning are equally important in a family as in a company. These and other skills are discussed by Jacquelyn B. Fletcher in her book A Career Girl's Guide to Becoming a Stepmom. Fletcher focuses on organization, goal setting, negotiation, dealing with difficult co workers, delaying gratification for long term success, networking, problem solving, creative brainstorming and team building.
