Discover what is needed to reach your goals. Some of these approaches won’t cost you anything. Others will require that you invest in your career.


  1. Take advantage of learning opportunities within your company

Go beyond the offered training classes and start thinking at the next level. Get away from your desk and attend company-wide meetings to learn what’s important to the leaders in your company. Read company publications including the annual report and read between the lines to learn what your company’s true strengths and challenges are. Find out about the major strategic initiatives and what is driving them. And by all means sign-up for the training programs that will refresh or expand your knowledge, skills and self-awareness.
