What is your work style? Are you reactive proactive? For many years, simply following orders and doing what you’re told was enough. You could build a career around it. But not any more.
In times of great uncertainty, you can’t just take your job security for granted and just assume you’re going to be okay. This is an excellent time to take inventory of yourself. It’s time for a SWOT assessment.
Being complacent and failing to bring new ideas to your employer can cost you your job, especially if you’re in a higher-level position. That’s exactly what happened to me four years ago.
Don’t compete with your peers – create new value for the people you serve. That’s the secret to making a bigger impact and your job and career.
Now is the time to make a career transforming move – a pivot to a new direction that will bring you joy, fulfillment and success on a scale you never imagined. Think of it as a “personal inflection point.”
If you’re aching to get unstuck in your career, deciding what to do can be daunting. Why not break down your challenge and tackle it one step at a time?
To succeed today, you need to punch above your weight. In other words, you need to think and perform at a level that is well beyond what your job title would suggest. It’s a sure-fire way to position yourself for advancement and new opportunities.
So you think your job is “safe?” With all of the uncertainty surrounding us, no one is really safe, as a talented friend of mine recently discovered.
In many video games, you “level up” – performing tasks that increase your powers and capabilities. In real life, if you want to have greater impact, you also need to “level up” your efforts – to take big swings and calculated leaps that will help you to advance faster.
Don’t hold back – the world needs your passion, energy and ideas now more than ever!
