I’ve worked with many corporations and public organizations discussing their data assets. The value of their information and their knowledge about how to use it. Sometimes it’s hard to see the value of what is right in front of us. We tend to crave what we think we see in a distance instead. It is hard to really get into the core of what is creating a value in your product or service or what addition could easily enhance that value. But for organizations taking the trouble of understanding this, it could mean the difference between going under, when the demand from their customers changes, or huge success when selling what is actually making a difference for their customers. This approach can easily be translated into your own personal professional options as an experienced professional.
As an experienced professional you are way past the time when your professional skill was the tools you were taught in school. Experience add things to your skill. If you start to pinpoint the value you have added to your basic skills you will be surprised. If you understand your own unique qualities as an individual with your abilities you can start to see your options more clearly. We often tend to only see our own perceived shortcomings or we measure us against somebody else. Neither of these views are productive. We are all unique. To truly see our own traits gives us the opportunity to be creative about how we can make the most of them. Your good qualities, deep skills, and experience combined with your current interests and passions could really make a difference. But only if you use these assets to their full potential. Don’t wait for somebody else to “discover” your greatness and talents. Take your time to investigate this yourself.
Ask yourself these “key to success” questions:
- Where did I start from? What skills did I learn in university or in professional trainings?
- How have I used these skills? When was I most successful and felt the flow?
- What have I successfully added to my original skills?
- What do I really enjoy about this today and feel passionate about?
Look at your answers and try to see them with an objective eye. Where would you suggest an individual with these traits would make the biggest success?
If you like you can send me your answers and I can give you my objective view of options I can see for you. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
