Define the target
Do you have Chef Having given you the OK for a development step that you are aiming for, you now have to clearly define the development goal for yourself. "I want to get more involved with reporting" says little and does not provide any concrete evidence. This can be done better!
Goals are SMART!
The SMART rule following should precisely encompass a career goal WHAT you will be doing right up to when. To ensure that the goal remains realistic, it has proved useful to derive partial targets and to set specific dates, eg the end of each quarter.
Vote for this "target roadmap" with your boss. So you prevent any misunderstandings. In addition, the scrutiny of an experienced manager can be very helpful in terms of realistic feasibility.
Their own strength and motivation are not always enough to achieve a set goal. Therefore, get gain into the boat. Ask yourself who (except you) will profit from it when you reach the goal.
You want to extend existing reports to the area XY? Then the colleagues from department XY can certainly benefit from the additional transparency and be ready to support.
Together, more can be achieved. Another advantage: to hang or even give up is no longer easy to consider.
Motivation and transparency
Driving your own career is both physically and mentally exhausting. To ensure that you do not run the risk of getting burnt out or burned, take a short break regularly (at least once a month). Use the breather to relax, but also to reflect. S
Ask yourself if you are still on course and consider the results of your efforts so far. Teach your boss about the current situation in this Atempause. This is how he regularly learns about your career and you maintain contact with the manager.
In addition, your supervisor will appreciate the transparency. To let young talents be blinded to their careers is an absolute no-go for responsible managers.
In order to catch the boss in a relaxed and good news situation, the Freitagnachagag is the right place. The big topics of the week are often already done and the weekend is approaching.
Both the supervisor and you can take the short conversation about the intermediate targets as a positive impetus with the weekend.
