Four Aspects of Career Development
One of the first questions someone asks you when you meet them is unsurprisingly: what do you do? Yet despite how much we're asked, most of us don't really know what we're doing and why.
There's nothing wrong with connecting on the basis of work. But to do it better, and many other things like make money, provide for family, pursue hobbies, or have fun with friends, you have to be strategic about your work. So, here's the four things we believe you got to be to develop your career:
BE STRATEGIC. It's all about seeing the big picture and crafting answers (as well as follow-up actions) to the "What Am I Here to Do" question. We'll leverage our 10,000 foot view of the working world to help you start from scratch or strategically build the career path you're already on.
BE COMPETITIVE. Make no mistake, even librarians need to set themselves apart. In this module, we'll show you how to do things like set strategic workplace goals, craft a personal brand, crush your performance reviews, get promoted, and give others chances to sing your praises.
BE GREAT. Sometimes, you just need to get better at what you do. We've got tips and strategies on a range of industries and practices that will help you perform up-to-snuff, which takes more than just leveraging what's already "inside" you. We'll teach you better-than-exec communication, critical thinking above the standard, what innovation really means, how to build expertise, and more.
BE PREPARED. Get ready for your next career move or that rare moment that catches you off-guard. We'll show you how to really prepare for interviews, improve your story-telling, implement actionable promotion strategies, make great impressions, network like the pros, and more. We know how to command the boardroom, so we'll show you how, too.
