Re-Frame Career Development

"I don't have time to work on my career."

This is a statement I often hear during 1:1 mentorship conversations, both inside and outside the organization.

My top tip to help my mentees address this is: re-frame career development to be an integral part of your role and responsibilities.

As you define your career development actions for the upcoming 2-3 quarters, make sure that they align with business priorities that you are already committed to delivering or seed future priorities.

For instance, looking to improve your stakeholder management skills? Take the lead in stakeholder engagement for the program you're delivering.

By doing this, you not only significantly increase the likelihood of accomplishing your growth activities, but also fulfill your committed goals concurrently.
