Career Management

The career model has changed dramatically for most of us. There is far less security and more rapid change. Change confronts us and also creates opportunities that tempt us to move on to something different.

Management gurus and the corporations we work in tell us that we must manage our own careers. No one else is going to do it for us. But what does ‘managing your career’ really mean? And how do you do it, particularly when you are immersed in your current occupation?

One thing we know for sure is that we do not know what will happen in the future, no matter how much we plan. There are, however, significant moments in your career when you know that what you are currently doing will not last forever. These moments are opportunities to take the initiative and start to think about the direction that you want your life and career to take.

  • How recently have you examined your career and life?
  • Do you know what you want?
  • Where are you in relation to your aspirations?
  • Are your fundamental values in alignment with your work?
  • What matters most to you and how do you work towards this?
  • What skills will make you more effective now and in the future?
  • Are you building a network of long term business relationships?
  • Do you know how to create the life and career that you really want?

The saying goes that for a rudderless ship any port is a good one. You could leave your career to chance and see where you end up.  Or you could take charge and head for where you want to be.
