Become the Boss of Your Own Career with These Incredible Tips!
When we talk about being a boss, the first thing that comes to our mind is establishing a business. If you’re a boss, you’re the one calling the shots. You have absolute and complete control when it comes to managing your time, resources, and money. However, not all of us are able to fulfill our dream of establishing a business so we settle for the next best thing. And that is by leading a promising career and landing our dream job.
If our dream job or passion becomes our profession, we won’t have to worry about working at all. However, what if our dream job suddenly becomes our own nightmare? Can we still be able to ace our job career ahead of us?
From an Employee to a CEO
The founder of NK Webb Group, Nicole Webb, quit her job to become a career coach to guide employees in acing their career life. She stated that the first step in becoming the boss of your career is shifting your perspective. Instead of thinking yourself as merely an employee, you should put more value on your worth.
Think of yourself as the CEO even though technically, you’re not the one calling the shots.
If you want to advance your career, you should be mindful and critical when it comes to decision making. Have the skills, knowledge, and abilities you currently own opened up greater opportunities for advancement? If you need to quit your current job, then take the risk. It may be a dreadful experience at first, but in the end, it’s worth it. Why? Because it might be the only way for you to achieve your professional goals. If you really want what’s best for your career then you must become the best version of yourself! So, don’t settle for less than what you deserve.
Gain Your Confidence and Strive for Excellence
Nicole also shared how she coached many professionals who were highly educated and talented. However, they don’t exactly excel in their profession because they lack the confidence. They limit themselves from achieving their professional goals. They let their boss or other entities dictate their fate and their job success. That’s why Nicole advised her students to think like CEO first to break that boundary. The moment they start seeing themselves like bosses, they can start opening their minds to their full potential.
What Nicole and her team do next is to expose their clients to things or scenarios that can help them put their newly-built confidence into action. They want that confidence to pair with their actions through series of workshops. Aside from honing their skills, they will teach you how to position yourself for promotion. They will also equip you with negotiating, interpersonal, and social skills to face any scenarios and address issues and setbacks without fear.
Your Career Is Your Sole Responsibility
Since you’re now the CEO of your own career, you also need to realize that it’s your responsibility to deal with whatever happens to it. That’s why we encourage you to invest time, money, and effort to advance your career. Expand your network connection to provide more career opportunities and collaboration projects. The more you get exposed to the industry, the sooner you can position yourself apart from your competitors. Being an influential expert and role model in your profession is a telltale sign of acing your path.
Seek a Mentor or Coach’s Help If You Must
If you still get stuck on how to advance your career ladder, then don’t hesitate to ask for help. You need to realize that you’ll be spending most of your life as a career professional. So make it worthwhile and fulfilling while it last. Seek a professional mentor or coach’s help to guide you in establishing your own professional goals and acing your career in no time.
