Newsletter: How Are You Adding Value?


Research shows that people are 75% more likely to achieve goals that they have written down.

Many of us do strategic planning for our organizations and companies, but few of us plan formally for ourselves. In the same way that it’s important for our companies to articulate a clear vision that we can marshal people and resources around over time, it’s also valuable to focus our individual resources. The need for a long-term career plan is most pressing when you’ve achieved a high degree of success, because the next few steps are not always clear-cut. Often, moving the advancement needle at the peak of your career involves efforts that take years to come to fruition.

With that in mind, successful professionals need strategic plans for the next phase of your careers. Your plan should detail where you want to be in the next one, three, or even five years.

This month we’re sharing a few tips to consider as you develop those personal strategic plans. First and foremost, this time of year is the ideal time to start thinking about your annual performance review and compensation conversations. You’ll be asked not only what you have accomplished recently, but also what you want to achieve in the next few years within your company. I want you to have precise, compelling answers, to propel your career to higher peaks.
