Career Development

Are you thinking about reviewing where you are with your career and wanting to develop it?
If you are then please do read on.

Early in the year is a good time psychologically to do a  career review. For your own learning and growth as well as to achieve progress in certain areas such as financial, are often good drivers.

How do you go about this?

I provide one tried and tested approach here.

Step 1: Brainstorm your key achievements over the last 18-24 months. Did you set career objectives and to what extent did you achieve those?

Step 2: What are your insights and learnings from these achievements?

Step 3: Have you been focused on the right things over the last 18-24 months in order to achieve your career goals and objectives?

Step 4: What is outstanding from previous objectives set? Perhaps develop an action plan with resources required and timescales to complete these.

Step 5: What are your current goal and career objectives? What is driving these?

Step 6: Develop a plan for the next 18-24 months for your career including actions, resources and timescales.

This 6 step career development review approach will help you to clarify your career direction ad provide you with some motivation and stricture to make it happen.
