How to ensure your career development?

Every job requires learning and growth. Also skills and competencies are not written on stone. Over time they develop or vanish. There is no stable situation in mastery. Question is how to develop your professional skills? 

What are your development goals? What is your plan to achieve them? What have you done this week to advance them? These are favourite questions of many experienced recruiters at the final stages of recruitment process. Make sure you are ready to give meaningful answers to these. Everyone is capable to say, “If I get this job, I will learn…”

“Wondering what to do next in your career? In these challenging, changing times, it can be surprisingly difficult for many professionals to achieve and produce good, let alone optimal performance. I know it myself; everyday life is much easier when familiar routines roll smoothly.

A significant problem for many who struggle with their performance is that they try to copy general tips and ideas. However, one size does not fit all.  General tips and advice are not based on individual strengths, behaviors, and context. In this way, they do not take root in everyday life, only creating short striking productivity ecstasy that drops like a falling star. An approach based on your strengths and personality traits, on the other hand, is more than two (> 2) times more likely to take root in your life. 

I have done over 500 coaching sessions for different individuals and teams in the last four years. My clients have been entrepreneurs, leading experts, experienced leaders, recent graduates, new career and direction seekers. In these training sessions, I have focused to help them to identify, develop and take advantage of their personalized strengths and motivations to create a better everyday work life.

The future will inevitably require us to reform ourselves. A better, more productive work life can be one coaching discussion away. If you are interested in taking the first step towards a better work life please contact me.”
