9 Strategies for Exerting Your Expertise
Expertise means knowing and understanding everything possible about a particular subject area. Expertise is also a source of power and influence, and in order to ‘get on’ you need to exert yours. Here are nine strategies for doing just that:
Your expertise includes having, fostering and developing the right attitudes.
Set the standards that you expect from all your staff and enforce them.
If you want people to work in particular ways, then train them.
If something is wrong, put it right.
If you lack particular expertise, go out and find it.
Make sure that you always have a fresh flow of expertise and ideas coming into your organisation.
When staff and others come to you with new ideas, listen to them and evaluate them.
Encourage everyone to continue to learn and develop at all times.
Ensure that everyone takes up some part of staff training and development programmes.
