One of the biggest issues is that people don’t take charge of their career; they leave it to their boss or the organization. I am lucky to work with hundreds of individuals a year and in almost every assessment I say “You really could be doing more!” What more do you want to do with your life? Are you where you want to be?
STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE
What I’m going to say today is key to your development and financial state of your career. When we abdicate our development to someone else it has a lot of problematic aspects.
Your boss might be great at their job but doesn’t have the skills to identify the gaps in your leadership development. They have a narrow view of what the full organization needs and perhaps even the industry.
How can you take control of your leadership development?
QUOTES BY CHRIS
“Take control of your development!”
Sit down and say “Looking at myself what are some of the development opportunities I can take that I can find within as well as outside the organization around the areas of innovation, identifying opportunities, learning how to take on grit and how to collaborate better with others.” You will wanted and needed at organizations when you have those specific skill sets, habits and practices!
