Redefining Professional Growth in a Re-Imagined Work World
What is professional growth? For most of us, the first thing that comes to mind is a vertical climb up the corporate ladder from entry-level to mid-management to senior leadership. But professional growth is much broader than that.
The work environment is vastly different from the past, morphing with advances in technology, skill sets, and market demands. These days a good number of organizations are becoming flatter, less hierarchical. Futurists predict people will transition through several different careers during their working lives. A redefinition of professional growth needs to be understood by both employers and employees in the context of these new realities.
Employers can’t continue to believe they hold all the cards anymore, because they don’t. And from the employee perspective success is no longer about reaching the VP level; it’s about developing skill sets and experiences that eliminate redundancy and make the individual highly employable in a market where talent reigns supreme.
