Always be Employable.
One of the biggest risks we face in today’s work landscape is irrelevance or redundancy, as competition gets tighter, skill expectations evolve, and work practices get turned upside down. And that’s before we even consider competing with the robots!
Simply putting your head down and working hard isn’t a smart play. It never really was, but it’s even less so now. You need to be developing your comparative advantage. You need to be articulating your Unique Edge and spotting your best opportunities. This is the key to remaining marketable in today’s environment.
Refuse to be at the whim of corporations and external forces.
In today’s world, we barely have the time to get used to things before the ‘next new thing’ gets rolled out. Reorganizations. Consolidations. Outsourcing. New company strategies. New ways of doing things.
The key to having a level of control (and calm!) over your career is to have your own plan. Without one, you’re vulnerable to all the industry and company changes. Without your own gameplan, you can feel lost and confused, simply reacting to where others are pushing you to go.
We all need to view our careers more strategically than ever before, with increased attention to where and how we position ourselves. Career management is giving way to career leadership and career ownership. And this is the key to being the boss in our own careers!
