As we chase our long-term career goals, we continue to discover the value of being accountable. Around the Rocksteady Promotions office, we’ve been using the following strategies to monitor our progress from day to day:
• Becoming More Self-Aware: The better we know our strengths and weaknesses, the more attuned we are to our developmental needs. When we take time to reflect on past achievements and future goals, we’re better equipped to find the best way forward. Self-awareness helps us honestly assess where we are and where we could be in the future.
• Checking In: Regular check-ins are important parts of staying on track to reaching career goals. It’s easy to get a bit lost in the shuffle of one busy workday after another, so we have regular meetings with our Rocksteady Promotions supervisors to discuss our progress toward big goals.
• Taking the Broader View: It’s also important to look at the bigger picture when we consider our own career progress. By thinking about our aspirations in relation to the organization’s larger mission, we get more inspired to achieve success that benefits everyone involved.
These are just a few of the fundamental concepts we keep in mind while chasing our professional goals.
