Get a mentor and become a mentor
Keeping a mentor at work is critical to gaining new skills and knowledge. A good mentor will help you solve some of the challenges and obstacles you face. The best mentors will help you find the next steps that are right for you and help you overcome obstacles that are right in the blind spot.
Good mentors are people who tell you what to hear and what not. They will give you the right feedback that you need to fill the blind spot in order to move forward.
Mentors are important in advancing your career. They can expose you to new experiences and insights.
In addition to finding a good mentor, you also need to find a good mentor. In many cases, managing people means the next step in your career. The best way to practice is to control another.
When you become a mentor, you share what you learn with others to help them move forward. You will learn a lot about motivating people and learning new skills if you can also act as a mentor in the workplace.
Raise your hand to new challenges
When you see new opportunities to learn new skills, choose it. If there is something in your company that you want to learn and you see an opportunity to learn these skills in a particular project or new task, you need to learn to master it.
If necessary, do a little more to learn the new skills you need to move forward. Remember, it is not aggressive to seize a new opportunity. It is useful, useful and valuable. People who develop in their careers are looking for ways to smoothly find new learning opportunities.
When a new project appears and it adapts to the skills you acquire, raise that hand. Tell your supervisor or staff team that you want to learn new skills or gain new, more advanced experiences. Be aware of what you can offer for the project, and get involved.
Reading, reading, reading and finding problems to solve
Sometimes you don’t have to do a lot of movements. We understand that, we recommend that you read everything about your industry and your industry.
Investigate everything you need to know about your business and your competitors. Know your company’s business goals and unique outlets on your back. Become an expert on these issues and talk about it. Think of some solutions to important business challenges.
To be fair, if someone on my team comes to me with a solution, he will be noticed. If there aren’t a lot of special projects coming up, you can develop and create your own special project knowing what challenges you can solve for the company. This is how you learn new skills and stand out for taking the time to solve a business problem.
Make friends (network) in other departments
Often, new skills are outside your department or area of influence. Think of internal networking to eliminate this. Meet people in other departments, other offices and other teams. Be curious about your department. Learn all about their jobs and skills. Find out how they acquire these skills, and see how you can apply there in your spare time to develop the skills you want to use to expand your career.
