Positioning yourself for the next steps forward
At the mid-career stage, you’ve already built a solid platform for your professional future – accumulating the necessary hard and soft skills to be effective in your role and demonstrating your ambition to take on more responsibility as you continue growing. But for many people, the mid-career can mark the stage when advancement starts to lose steam. If you are interested in taking a “good” career to “great”, the professional coaches at Career Focus Network can help you get there.
We have the resources to help you assess the skills you’ve gained to date, not just confirming where your strengths lie, but identifying any gaps that might keep you from gaining full traction on your path ahead. It’s not just the “softer” skills – like listening as effectively as you speak – that require your attention to move forward. Many professionals stumble on more practical items like setting priorities to maximize your impact, proper organizing to optimize efficiencies and leading through change in an evolving organization. Whether you’re a leader or an individual contributor, contact us to learn how Career Focus Network can support your forward momentum, at mid-career stage or any stage in your career path.
