Your personal inventory
Happiness and fateful events certainly belong to the professional development too, but only the salt should be in the soup. As a masterplan they are not good. Career is a very personal matter, the center of which is formed. In practice, therefore, it has proved to be a good idea to plan your career and start with a survey of the current situation.
No matter whether employees or executives - the more precisely you define your situation, the easier it is to plan and successfully implement the next development steps. And even if it is not always easy, be honest with yourself. Do not forget to look beyond the box. Your work environment has a decisive influence on your career.
A clear picture of your own tasks
To get started with the personal per- sonal balance, illuminate your own tasks. What is your core task and what are the tasks? Get a complete picture of what services are to be provided for the company and which are actually provided.
It is important not to run into the trap of self-understanding here. Thus, some tasks may have been added only with time, since no one else has the competences for this. For example, For example, a sales team, for which it may be self-evident to create reports and reports. Whoever takes on tasks of others has less time for his own career.
Your development to date
The next step is the question of the development so far.
- How could you establish yourself in your area of responsibility?
- Which competences have you acquired and where do you still feel insecure or do you want to improve yourself?
- The question is particularly exciting in this context: How did you learn the most?
Are you more likely to benefit from training on the job with experienced colleagues, or do you prefer to develop a new task area entirely alone?
In addition to the professional analysis, the framework conditions of the job also include the inventory.
- How well do you see your colleagues?
- How much fun do you have?
- And have faith in yours Chef?
- Include the situation outside the office. Is your private life too short?
- Or do you have enough time to make friends and pursue your hobby? If you do not have any compensation for your daily work, you can certainly make a career. The question is only at what price.
A personal assessment is often subjective. Particularly young talents value themselves too well or too badly in many cases.
This situation can best be countered with a confidential foreign assessment. Speak to colleagues who you trust and ask for an honest opinion.
- Are they satisfied with the cooperation?
- What could be better?
- What are your particular strengths?
Honest feedback can positively change one's perspective and sharpen one's personal view.
