Assessing Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Managers have virtually no time available to nurture their employees. That’s why it’s easy to spot the superior workers; they’re the ones taking the initiative without relying on management support.
The key to keeping yourself on the short list of stellar employees is constantly evaluating the needs of your job, your company, and the marketplace, and seeing where you can improve. Even if you’re already performing your job well now, look even further. What will you need to do your job in one year, five years?
If you plan on moving up–and who doesn’t?–do you have the skills to ascend to the next job level? What about the one after that? Always keep your long-range goal in clear sight.
