MISTAKE 1: MAJOR BLIND SPOTS THAT HINDER YOUR CAREER PROGRESSION.
You’re too passive in taking control of your career. This is the #1 mistake that prevents you from setting yourself apart from your peers. Learning how to proactively capitalize on the right moments, with the right people, at the right times is key!
MISTAKE 2: LACKING CLARITY ON HOW TO CLOSE THE GAP TO YOUR NEXT ROLE.
You’re too focused on the short-term without realizing what you do today directly impacts where you want to go. This leads you to miss out on getting the guidance needed to concretely help achieve your next promotion as fast as possible.
MISTAKE 3: DOUBTING THE VALUE THAT YOU BRING IN YOUR ROLE.
You equate being young or junior in your role with not having enough value to bring forward. This is exactly what will keep you from creating a strong personal brand and allow self-doubt to get in the way of your impact.
MISTAKE 4: NOT MAKING YOUR VOICE HEARD DUE TO LACK OF CONFIDENCE.
You feel like what you say will be judged, ridiculed or discounted, so instead of speaking up, you choose to remain silent. This is a huge watch-out as becoming a confident speaker in all work settings is key for your career progression.
MISTAKE 5: LACKING THE SUPPORT SYSTEM TO HELP PROPEL YOU FURTHER.
In these early years of your career, you’re more focused on delivering good work vs. getting on the radar of those who can directly influence your future promotions and help get you ahead faster.
MISTAKE 6: A «NEED TO PROVE MYSELF» MINDSET COMPROMISES YOUR WELLBEING.
Achieving work life balance isn’t something that feels realistic for you, so being overworked and overwhelmed is your «normal». You’re lacking the skills to help prioritize yourself, which is essential for sustainable success.
