What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received? Hopefully, it wasn’t “Keep your head down and get your work done.”
That’s the worst advice, because it assumes that your ability to navigate your career depends on the quality of your work only. There are a number of other factors that will dictate your career success.
And this website covers the critical areas in which you need to grow in order to advance your career and position.
In fact, you should never keep your head down – not if you want to escape downsizings and get promoted.
Sure, you need to do GREAT work.
But to get ahead in your career, it’s about more than just your work. It’s also about:
- Who knows you
- What they know and say about you
- What they say about you when you’re not in the room
That’s the difference between being kept or cut.
Do you know which category into which you’d fall?
Whether you need to get a job, become a better leader or transition your career, you have to be sharp, intensify your focus, generate great work every day, and ensure you have quality interactions with others.
These are not easy tasks! Managing a career is difficult. It’s easy to get stuck because nobody knows your work or your value.
You have to Invest in yourself and give your work a voice. Every. Single. Day
