Below is the list of the personal and professional skills that you will require if you want to work as a professor in your respective field of interest:
Dear Aspirant, to be a successful professor, anyone definitely needs excellent personal and professional skills. The personal skills refers to the ability to manage your personal reactions to responsibilities and challenges in professional work and personal life. This involves managing your time and adapting to changing situations. Or we may also say that personal skills are the abilities, which are learnt in peoples works or affairs but can also be put into practice in other circumstance, for example communication, teamwork, leadership and above all problem solving. From these line now it may be some what clear to you that to become a successful Professor the Personal skills are very important. The personal skills also integrate self management, which is the ability to manage your personal reactions and challenges in life.Let me give example here to explain it more clearly; if a person is not self managed, unable to control personal reactions, and is a bad listener, can he or she be a good and successful Professor?? The answer is obvious. A professor has to be a good listener, be patient and analytical to answer the queries of his or her students.Lets come to another quality that is Professional skill for a professor. The professional skills included the professional qualification. It includes the minimum qualification to become a professor, it could be in some cases a masters degree or a doctoral degree. In most of the cases the doctoral degree is a must that too with some other qualification such as NET certificate (this is required to get entry in colleges and universities as Lecturer or Assistant Professor).
Thank you very much for contacting CareerGuide.com which works for your purpose 24x7. Asking question about personal and prfessional skills makes you visible in terms of non-academic background. My dear friend personal behavior and professiona skills are just like the oxygen moleculaes in water without this compnent you can not imagine anything in life even thes social life needs such skills to interact forget the eligent job like professor and other executive positions. First we need to develop our outlook which is possible when you see the different elite socities at regional level, state level, national level and international level. We are far behind in terms of professional art which is common by a large so first we need to groom ourselves for the basic instinct to be required at school and college lebel. What we think that we will do in future when after passing the exams and degrees while exploring the jobs. I mean to say that we leave everything in future tense where our academic system is now having eye-opener system and again trying to commit the mistake by following the other countries (developed) benchmarking that is not an acceptible trend at our perspective. Though we have different socio-economic dynamics, diverse culture and diferent relegious background then how come we talk about that our basic could be transformed by uniform norms I am confused at this level and feel helpless. Moreover I will suggest you the following points before concluding that these skills are associated with our upbringing which can not be developed in three months or three years by attending any councelling session or workshop.
