PROACTIVE CAREER PLANNING OUTLINE

Too often professionals rely on the advice of their management or human resources departments in isolation to guide their professional development.  While I agree their feedback and guidance is very important to your performance at your present place of employment, if you rely on it in isolation you may be doing yourself a disservice.  Management and human resource professionals often provide guidance in the context exclusive to the work environment and use processes and tools that may not focus on leveraging your strengths, improving your weaknesses, and guiding your development as an individual who will likely encounter additional career transitions—all of these are not, nor should they be their focus – you should “own your professional development”.  This includes preparing yourself for the transitions you will likely experience throughout your career.  Consider the following questions:

  • Do you set professional development goals independent of your work environment?
  • Who are you relying on to manage your career?
  • Are you receiving guidance that will positively impact your career throughout the entire time you plan to remain in the workforce?

Are you performing at maximum capacity, missing opportunities, or simply letting the “system” influence your performance and perhaps ultimately, your career?  There’s never been a better time to “own it” and proactively improve your performance.
