Key Takeaways

- Think of your career as Lego blocks - you can assemble your skills and experience in a variety of ways.
- Understand your skill gaps, what your stronger and weaker capabilities are, what efforts you are ready to make and your own ideal workplace. Develop a plan to get better and stronger but also have your own career spec to check that you are in the right fit.
- Networking is critical: it will support you to deliver and will help you to identify career opportunities that are not broadly publicized.
- Your approach to networking must be strategic, purposeful and kind. Give and get, maintain it!
- Analyze stakeholders around you to gain context and have more impact. Show people around you that you are able to see the big picture and use judgement and tact.
- If you are leading a Team, ask yourself what assumptions you are making. And, after broadening your perspective, move to active coaching, training, supporting
- To perform in meetings, over prepare, participate, practice active listening and volunteer for those critical “next steps” at the end of every meeting. And time yourself correctly for when it’s the right moment to speak.
