One special key to growth

Linda’s jaw dropped, her stomach rumbled, and her heart began to race. How am I supposed to do this, she thought?

Linda was unsatisfied at work. She was bored and wanted to take on new initiatives, yet she didn’t have the skills for it. She craved that big step forward. Linda led a few small teams but never an international team with a $10 million+ budget. She discussed the role she truly wanted to play with her boss who eagerly had a project waiting to be led. Within minutes, she became the Team Lead to build a new technology platform for a big client.

Linda thought, what did I get myself into?  I won’t sleep for the next year. She said thank you to her boss, went back to her office, and took a deep breath. She asked herself the following:

  •        What skills do I need to keep the team engaged and on track?
  •        What resources does the team need?
  •        Who has successfully walked this path before and can mentor me?

All it took was an hour of planning to figure this all out. She started making phone calls and setting this in motion.

Assess the gaps between where you are and where you want to be. Plan for and fill your gaps to reach the next stage of growth in your career, life and relationships. This is the key to growth. Plan for what you want to grow into.  

Will you schedule an hour this week to do this?

 

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
