Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow. Robert Kiyosaki
1) Take a pro-active stance in being your own career manager. If you are waiting for someone else to spot your talents and capabilities, you could be waiting forever. Become your own career manager and take action.
2) Do a realistic talent audit. Identify your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Get feedback from those close to you at work and home about your strengths and weaknesses. A 360-degree feedback exercise can be very helpful here. Building on your strengths, especially ones you enjoy, is vital but take in areas for development as well. If 5 out of 6 people are stating that you need to pay attention to your listening skills, they can’t all be wrong and this clearly points to the need for developmental action on your part.
