An Insight Into Professional Growth Strategies
- Find a mentor:
A way to develop your skills and understanding of your current or aspiring role is by learning from a mentor. A mentor is someone who will recognise the value that mentoring brings to the workplace, and will supply a development plan for their mentees. A mentor does not have to be a work colleague or even your boss, it can be any professional that is either within your industry or someone that has experience in your role and have progressed from there. This article from Indeed explains the importance of a mentor.
- Master your role and industry:
By taking the time to fully understand and learn the jargon, processes, and trends that come with your specialised industry, you will see an improvement in your communication skills about the issues that your industry and your organisation are both facing, resulting in you demonstrating your capabilities and that you understand the needs of the business.
To become a master, you will need to ensure that you put more time and effort into continuously learning about your business and industry. This means that you could:
- Read a publication each week surrounding your specialism or business (magazines, websites, trending news, etc.)
- Attend trade shows – see what others are doing and get inspired
- Look at connecting with other professionals that are within your industry
- Performance means everything:
Everyone at some point in their careers will be subject to a formal review, as they are incredibly useful tools for both employer and employee. Not only do they gauge your performance and highlight where you are meeting expectations and where you need improvement, but they are also incredibly important for your professional development as they establish goals which you and your manager will be able to work on a plan of action to ensure that you are meeting the expectations and demands of the organisation.
- Be realistic:
Give yourself realistic goals and time frames to complete the objective. This will not only allow you to plan forward but it will provide you with more time and control over your projects as well as improve the communication within a team.
