Within the realm of work individuals are often out of touch with their values and lack any real craft of personal development. Issues and dysfunctions can hinder career progress and lead to poor performance and being passed over for promotion.
Personal development should be a core focus for both individuals and companies. As individuals, we are simply more generative, impactful, successful and conscious when we take time to answer the big questions for ourselves.
When we know ourselves we become more authentic and more powerful. We are able to make decisions with clarity and direction. We are generative employees rather than reactive employees and this is seen by the people we work with and for. When we step up to be a leader in our own life this creates a distinct impact in the workplace and sets the tone for our professional contribution.
Take the time to understand who you are, your strengths, values, style and goals. It will be the best investment for your career.
