Professional development goes above and beyond changing titles and taking on new training opportunities. Advancement can be more than just increased responsibility and pay, but also an opportunity to stretch your comfort zone, provide more value, and contribute more to achieving company goals.
Analyze what you do by focusing on a deep understanding of your position and the bigger picture of the work you do. From there, develop goals. Create for yourself new challenges to conquer within your workspace.
- Are you challenging the status quo?
- Are you pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone every day?
- In what ways are you growing?
- How does your growth impact the company?
The return on your investment is a Win- Win. You become more satisfied and challenged, and your company benefits from your new initiatives.
