Career development has never been so vital. If you employ staff and have no way of helping them grow, they will leave, it's as simple as that.
If you are an employee and want to grow, then it's important to take some personal responsibility for your own future, because there is a school of thought that says that if you are not growing you are dying. A bit drastic for sure, but how many people have become stuck in a rut, comfortable with their skills or thinking, only to look up and find the world has passed them by?
Employees tend to wait for their bosses to help them grow. Teenagers tend to think they don't need to grow. And those in the older age group tend to think they are too old to grow.
How would it be if every day you aimed to learn one thing you didn't know yesterday? How would it be if instead of just reading a book, you decided to do just one thing differently as a result of reading that book?
Imagine where we could end up if that was our attitude. Check out some of our amazing personal development products right here on The Corporate Tool-box.
