The last 18 months has certainly been volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA). Every time we think that we are about to settle into some semblance of normality, something happens to throw our expectations into turmoil. This turbulence calls on us to adapt so as to navigate the new order. A task that is often easier said than done. So, here is a question for you, do you believe that you are ready to progresss your career in the new normal ?
If the answerr to the question was yes, then you next question would be what are likely the keys to success in the new normal? We at AlfaSec Advisors believe that the 3 fundamental traits essential in progressing one's career in the new norm are focus, resilience, and an agile mindset. Like skills, these behavioural traits will not develop if not nurtured, and only through practice and guidance will these traits develop.
The new challenges posed by the current VUCA environment creates the perfect impetus to re-assess our personal and professional goals and begin enhancing the required behavioural traits.
So, are your skills and behavioural traits harmonious with your personal and professional goals? Are you willing to put in the effort to make this assessment and rise to the challenges of the new norm? Do you have the self-discipline and self-awareness to undertake this new challenge by yourself? Would you benefit from the assistance of an Executive Coach?
We leave you to contemplate those questions, and if any of the questions posed in this blog resonate with you, feel free to contact us. Let's Talk !
