Ten Things About Your Career Development

articlesexpress.com       Navigation

Career Development. Who tells us about this when we start in our first job or make decisions about college? No one. So do we end up in the perfect job or are we a square peg in a round hole, forever sub-clinically depressed? It's pot-luck...want some help...

There are some tactics you can action whatever you wish for from your career. Whatever you might think right now, you have all the tools you need for a career which give you joy and fulfilment. You might not think that possible, or that it will leave you cash poor. But that's not usually the case. Your life can change within your control.

Those who are the best at Career Development...

  1. Recognise Unease

    They see within themselves that they are not as happy as they should be and take steps to find out why.

  2. Get Creative

    Through the murk and confusion, they are able to step back and see the big picture and leave nothing out as options.
  3. Understand their Values

    By finding out just what is truly important to them - what gives them a real buzz, they use this to create a picture of what it is they want from their career.

  4. Devise Tactics

    And so they plan, step by step to see what they can leverage from their current role. What they have elsewhere that they can utilise. All to prepare for moving towards their future

  5. Have a Goal

    And they have a Vision; a goal that they want to get to. This gives their activities towards their Career Development energy and focus.

  6. Prioritise

    Yet they take it step-by-step, in line with other parts of their lives. Unless they feel there is a moment now where the time has come to make a dramatic step, they take their time, priority by priority, to prepare the way.

  7. Are Focused

    The best at Career Development are able to deliver their existing role, keep their eye on the future ball as well as preparing themselves for the next challenge.

  8. Know their Strengths

    Vital to be clear on, many who are those round pegs in the square holes strive to get much, much better at the things they struggle with. Bad idea. Top performers work their strong points well and delegate the rest - or find a different role.

  9. Are Ambitious

    These folks are on a mission. They want the best for themselves. The very best stop at nothing to get there and use some skills which may verge on selfishness, both in the workplace or in their domestic setting.

  10. Plan

    Often they may map out their Career Development way into the distance. Truth is they are very unlikely to take their future by chance.

You can take control over your own destiny - but only 100% of the time, no less. And no-one else will.
