You may have abused and mocked the US President Donald Trump ever since he started the entire campaign towards reaching the White House.
While his political tirades may have left you in splits, or speechless, there are lots of priceless lessons that you can still learn from his previous show The Apprentice.
If you don’t remember seeing it, here’s a recap of some of the actual life lessons that you can learn from the show, that can go on to help you in your work life as well.
You Can Be A Leader Even If You Are Not A Boss Yet
Being a boss is something that comes later in life, once you have proven yourself in the earlier stages of your career. But that does not mean you have to limit your leadership skills. Being a leader does not mean you have to clash with those in higher posts, but you can still do the same by taking initiative, taking on more responsibility, and actually being there for the team. Even if you are not getting all the credit, your colleagues will still have a good word for you.
Learn How To Get Along

A workspace is one where you come in touch with a lot of people, and not all of them may have the same thought process as you. Even if you may not be able to be friends with them all, it is important that you learn how to get along and get the work done. If your ego, indifference or hate towards each other comes to the fore, the work will suffer, and no boss would like a team that can’t get the work done due to issues of conflict within work.
Ask About Feedback
Whether you did something right or wrong, feedback can always help you get better and improve the way you work. Don’t make it sound like you are upset and want to know why your work was not appreciated, but be positive and ask why you were not selected for a particular project, or what went wrong so that you can do things differently the next time.
Own Up To What You Or Your Team Did
We all make mistakes but what will set you apart is the fact that you own up to it and say you made a mistake. It is possible you made a mistake or someone from your team did, but if you own up to it and take the blame, it will also endear you to your team.
Mister Trump may not have set the best example as the President yet, but if you can, these words of wisdom from the man who was also a businessman before he became the biggest name in the current USA can truly help.
