Are you looking for greater career satisfaction and upward mobility? The hardest part of making a change in your life is taking that first step. We're here to help you get motivated and move forward with confidence! Here are 4 ways to grow your career that will really work:
1. Lose the Fear
Fear is one of the biggest inhibitors of growth. Whatever you've been afraid of in the past—try to let some of it go. Even if that just means taking one small step in a new direction. Take that step! What would you do if you weren’t afraid? There’s only one way to find out.
2. Say “Yes” more
Achieving greater career success can be as simple as saying “yes” more often. Saying “yes” is a key part of movement, change, and growth. It's also a big factor in having valuable new experiences, ideas, opportunities, and people in your life. If you're invited to a party or an event that you wouldn't normally go to, say "Yes" for a change and see where it takes you.
3. Stop Eating Lunch Alone
Don’t put yourself on an island. If you’re looking for career growth, you’re going to need other people to help you. Have lunch with colleagues from different departments and seek out opportunities to connect up with other local professionals that you know. The goal is to expand your network, become more visible, and gain insight from others.
4. Gain New Skills
There is no better time than now to learn something new. Gaining new skills will make you more marketable and more confident. Sometimes employers will foot the bill for new training and certifications, but if not, there are great online classes and web tutorials available. Don’t let a lack of funding keep you from adding another line to your resume!
