How does one become a butterfly? You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.
Transformation. The reinvention of a career. It's got to be intentional. You have got to want the 'new' you more than the comfort of the current you. Reinvention occurs when you recognize, then change the behaviors that are the source of the accumulating career baggage you are carrying today.
The best opportunities include:
1. A new role at a new company.
2. New location, market, station in same organization.
3. Promotion and/or different shift in same organization.
4. A freelancer, consultant or contractor on a new assignment.
These transformation opportunities have three critical elements to ensure long term success, specifically:
A. Reinvent yourself, creating new goals/objectives.
B. Get to know yourself, your strengths and weaknesses as well as important personality attributes.
C. Enjoy the ride, careers are journeys!
There are so few of these opportunities over the course of a 30 year career. Your link to uncovering best practices in your journey for reinvention can be found here: https://lnkd.in/etUJGx4
