In our work lives we get very immersed in ‘doing’ and rarely have time to reflect. Set some time aside to reflect on your career vision and your roadmap.
I have put together a Career Assessment Guide to stimulate your thinking, and to help you gain insights and learnings on where you are now and where you would like to go. This will lead to a much more impactful personal roadmap & development plan.
Many years ago on a leadership training we were asked to prepare a legacy statement. We were given this exercise late one evening & needed to have the statement ready to present back to the CEO & the class early next morning. We also had a must attend event that evening, giving us little time to work on our statements. This was a really good idea as it really focused the mind, even though at the time it didn’t seem like it! I have built on and refreshed my legacy statement over the years and have found it really valuable as I made career, role & competency development choices.
Career development involves defining your career vision, outline your roadmap & cascade this to your (annual) personal development plan. Defining your career vision involves a lot of soul searching & self evaluation. My Career Assessment Guide (Link) will help you on this journey.
