It’s a new year, and whether you’ve made any new year’s resolutions or not, there are lots of great ways to improve and keep yourself fresh and motivated at work over the next twelve months and beyond. One of the ways I prepare for a new year is reflecting on the past year, asking myself questions like these:
- What do I feel passionate or good about in the work I do?
- What excites me about going to work every morning that I want to continue doing or do more this year?
To kick off the conversation, I thought I would share my own reflection first. Over this past year I have worked on numerous employee engagement and communications, change management, thought leadership, and early talent development initiatives. I found myself thoroughly enjoying every single career or people development initiative that I was involved in, and I even started volunteering for side projects related to this topic. It only occurred to me then that I have always been extremely passionate about personal and professional development and this is something that gets me excited about waking up to work every morning.
For 2014, I want to explore more opportunities, work or volunteer, in people development so I can continue helping individuals, especially early talents, with developing the personal and professional skills they need to jumpstart a successful career.
