053: Being strategic in your career

In this episode, I focus on how you can be more strategic in your career and share the programme I use to help people with this. So many individuals are focused on implementing strategy in their workplace, that they neglect to be strategic in their career.Firstly, I discuss the difficulty of balancing career goals alongside day-to-day work, and how you can use the same process for developing strategy at schools as you can in your career.I then share my Four Building Blocks of Strategy framework that you can use to be more strategic in your career. These include:Clarify your career vision- understanding what you want from your career and what makes you happyAccelerators and sticking points- determining what could propel you forward and what is holding you backGeneral approach- figuring out a general way you can overcome your sticking pointsAction plan- form an action plan, focusing on one area to work onThis approach forms the roadmap I guide people through in the Lucidity Accelerator Programme I facilitate. It's all about focusing on where you are investing your time, money and energy so that you can be more strategic about your career.References and ResourcesEpisode 013: Strategy: Four essential building blocks (Strategy Toolkit 2)Find out more about the Lucidity Accelerator ProgrammeCatch up on previous podcast episodes at www.consultjuliet.co.uk/podcast Download your copy of the free eBook ‘The Strategic Independent School Leader’ at www.consultjuliet.co.uk/ebook
