When we work on our career paths and plan on how we’ll get to the next level, we often focus on the knowledge and skills that we need to accumulate.

How Will You Grow Your Career?

“Plant your tiny seeds and keep watering them every day. Soon, they’ll grow.” ~ Israelmore Ayivor

When you understand and embrace your career path as your own, you learn to nurture and grow it with intention. Career growth is not an idle process because you need to create and look for opportunities that can help you to get to where you want to be.

What Will You Take Away From A Challenging Year?

“When things do not go your way, remember that every challenge — every adversity — contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.” ~ Roy T. Bennett

We all had an unusual year that came with its own challenges. We learned how quickly things can change and impact our lives globally. We experienced change at an unprecedented rate. We’ve overcome hurdles that we didn’t know existed until it raised its head. It’s been an interesting year.

From Employee to Entrepreneur

“Transitions in life can offer opportunities for discovery.” ~ Robbie Shell

It’s commonplace for people to move from being an employee to being an entrepreneur and they do so for different reasons – some pursue their passion and others need a livelihood. Whatever the reason, one rarely comes across an individual who didn’t experience different challenges as they transitioned from employee to entrepreneur.

Do Your Personal Values and Your Company Values Align?

“Values reflect what is important to the way you live and work.” ~ Anonymous

When we’re in the job market and looking for a company at which to work, we often look at the superficial aspects like salary, job title, location, work environment, benefits, etcetera. We rarely look at other important aspects such as the company’s values, leadership style, decision-making process, transparency and communication with its people. If you want to build your career with a company that aligns with who you are at your core, it’s important to understand these aspects.

Adapt to Handle Change

“The wise adapt themselves to circumstances, as water moulds itself to the pitcher” ~ Chinese Proverb

“Successful careers are not planned. They develop when people are prepared for opportunities because they know their strengths, their method of work, and their values.” ~ Peter F. Drucker

There are more and more signs that remote work and virtual meetings are becoming the new normal. This is especially true for those of us who are able to work from almost anywhere as long as we have a laptop and a Wi-Fi connection.

Balance the Voices, Get True Business Value

“The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.” ~ Ralph G. Nichols

We know that the workplace can be a very diverse environment that is made up of people who have different backgrounds, levels of experience, personality types, beliefs, etc. Having a diverse workforce is both a good thing and necessary to thrive in a rapidly changing business environment.

Will You Finish What You Start?

“Without commitment, you’ll never start. But more importantly, without consistency, you’ll never finish.” – Denzel Washington

This year is coming to an end and we’re getting ready to enter a new decade. Every year seems to go by faster than the last and it can easily feel as though we haven’t achieved anything. As we get ready to enjoy the year-end festivities, we may also question if we’ve accomplished anything during the year.

Why Your Career Path Is Your Own

It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.

These words are extracted from the poem “Invictus”, written in 1875 by William Ernest Henley. It says that, regardless of the struggles and challenges that we face, we should be in the driver’s seat of our lives and determine our own fate. How often, as an adult, have you allowed someone else to make decisions that affect your life? How often have any of these decisions worked in your favour?
