As you think about your New Year’s resolutions, remember to include your professional goals.
This doesn’t mean you need to necessarily find a new job – the goals can be small but impactful with results
in 2023. Here are some categories to consider putting on your list:
Training/Education: When was the last time you learned something
new that could assist you with your job? Computer/tech skills, time management and communication techniques
are common ones to think about. Depending on your role there may be other educational opportunities internally
or through external companies that are cost-free as an employee.
Did you purge your office/workspace at the end of the year? When does your company’s fiscal
year end and take time then (or plan to now) to go through files, clean up your email communication into folders, create new
files/folders for 2023 and clean off your whiteboard and/or get a new planner.
Think about your current network at your company and outside of your company in your industry or partner/collaborative
industries. Have you limited your network to people you have to interact with? Are their
people in certain roles or companies that you would like to start communicating with to potentially add to your network?
Your career is a lifelong journey and the people in your network could be pivotal in assisting you to make changes
or move forward in the future.
