What is it that separates the achievers and the go-getters from those managers who sit there, spinning their wheels or worse still, just waiting for something to happen? The real achievers are those who take the initiative and make things happen. Do you want to stand around and wait for something to happen, or do you want to make it happen? The following guidelines are provided for the latter… 1. Adopt a positive approach at all times. If you want to be a successful initiator, you must begin by having the right attitude.
