Focus on making you a better person both in and out of the workplace.

Career management requires quality networking, being in the right place at the right time, earning a voice at the table, knowing your unique value proposition and how to use it, managing your personal brand, being influential – to name a few essentials. But all require one important thing: a personal commitment to manage and invest in your career the right way.

Take your cognitive and emotional skills to a higher level.

We will spend more time training to be open-minded and learning to update our beliefs in response to new data. We will practice adjusting after our mistakes, and we will invest more in the skills traditionally associated with emotional intelligence. The new smart will be about trying to overcome the two big inhibitors of critical thinking and team collaboration: our ego and our fears. Doing so will make it easier to perceive reality as it is, rather than as we wish it to be. In short, we will embrace humility. That is how we humans will add value in a world of smart technology.

Writing your story and tagline.

Creating and building your unique brand is an organic and ongoing process. So consider yourself and your career a work in progress, and reach out to get and give as much help as possible as your brand shifts and matures across the expanse of your career.

Expand your understanding and update your skills on an ongoing basis.

Because adequate service depends on staff who are well prepared and continuously learning, the quality of ongoing educational opportunities is of vital concern.

Now that you've explored personal development, check out the resources we've compiled on managerial development.

Leaders must adapt to changing business conditions, and inspire their organizations to change.

Emotions and psychology play major roles in situations of change. You can get the hard elements right (strategy, structure and systems), but without the soft elements (shared values, skills, style and staff), success is a long shot.

Increase your flexibility, expand your management skills and close gaps.

In this fierce, competitive market, you need to be proactive about learning new skills that will boost your performance and productivity. Imagine how much more valuable you will be when you can think about problems from new angles, suggest new approaches and offer more creative solutions.

Build your team.

Staffing is defined as filling positions in the organization structure through identifying workforce requirements, inventorying the people available, recruitment, selection, placement, promotion, appraisal, compensation and training of needed people.

Provide guidance and support to a developing professional.

By helping others improve their skills, you will improve your own skills. You may be inspired with new ideas, meet new contacts and may even learn new business strategies.

Now that you've explored managerial development, check out the resources we've compiled on organizational development.

Use innovation to lead effectively, work collaboratively, and drive results.

To make sense of unfamiliar situations and complex challenges, we must have a grasp of the whole of the situation, including its variables, unknowns, and mysterious forces. This requires skills beyond everyday analysis. It requires innovation leadership.

Develop the flexibility to manage up and down the cultural scale.

Often this means going back to square one. It means watching what makes local leaders successful. It means explaining your own style frequently. It may even mean learning to laugh at yourself. But ultimately it means learning to lead in different ways in order to motivate and mobilize groups who follow in different ways from the folks back home.

Give yourself the skill and influence to pave the way for others who follow.

At some point, you may advance to the point where you are not concerned solely with your own role as a strategic leader, but also with cultivating opportunities for others. This will require a clear-eyed, reflective view of the talent pool around you. It isn’t easy for any leader to accept that others in the company may not have what it takes. Or, worse, to learn that the people with the potential to demonstrate leadership feel constrained by current organizational practices, and they are taking their talents elsewhere.
