No one can tell you where you want to grow and develop. There are people and resources, inside and outside of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, who may be able to help, but it all starts with you.
Some people can readily answer these questions and develop a plan to grow their career. Others may need some help from trusted colleagues, their manager, human resources, organizational development, spouse, friend or professional counselor. It’s important to ask yourself some questions, explore the answers, choose a path and develop a plan.
Take charge of your own development.
Engage in some self-reflection. How did you and your supervisor rate your strengths and your opportunities for development at your last touch base or performance review? Compare your career path with your strengths and opportunities and discuss your current knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as past experiences, accomplishments and interests. Where should you put your development energies and efforts?
Talk to your supervisor.
During your regular next touch base, your bi-annual Focus Review or your Annual Performance evaluation, you have the opportunity to discuss your development goals and ideas with your supervisor. Get some practical feedback about where you stand and how much potential others see in you. Look for opportunities to take on new challenges, run special projects, join a new initiative.
