What do you need to make your next career move?Jan 22, 2017
Looking for a new job after January 1 is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions.
According to a survey by Salary.com, right now, employees are making efforts to upgrade to richer pastures. The survey showed that 43% of their respondents are not happy in their current jobs.
Anyway, what this all means is that if you’re one of those who wants to move to a new job, it’s time to start planning! (By the way, I am working on an awesome confidence building class for your career right now!)
Ok, so now I have a serious question, please consider this with me.
What help do you need with your confidence in order to make your next career move, whether that’s staying in the same job, the same organization, or moving organizations? What’s really holding you back in terms of your confidence and self-belief at work?
Promotions can’t always be taken for granted. At one time, workers followed a specific career path during their working lives, but the effects of technology, flatter organizations, and technology have changed that path.
Today, workers have to be more resourceful and manage their own career path. This can be in one organization or in several organizations. Sometimes, as well, you need to make a lateral move in order to later make an upward move.
We need to strategize so that we manage our career rather than moving aimlessly along. Time can go by but we haven’t done what we’d like to do.
Part of strategizing is to just make the choice that “this is what I want,” “this is what is important to me,” and then really focussing on that.
Part of focussing on what you want is creating your state of mind and confidence because these are crucially important for accomplishment and for the next stages in your career and in your happiness.
It is difficult to meet anyone who has limited confidence and still enjoyed great achievements.
On the contrary, experience shows that the ability to create confidence and change your state of mind are key abilities and characteristics for great achievements. This means you are using tools to create confidence when it’s really needed.
Transformation to confidence and self-belief doesn’t happen overnight. Just like going to the gym, practice, rather than two or three killer workouts, is what will make the difference. As you practice, you will see that you can handle life in a different way and better career opportunities will flow to you.
What is it for you? What is it about your confidence at work that you need help with?
