I recently came across a CrucialSkills.com article that posed a very relevant question from a concerned professional:
What should I do if I believe I have reached my “peak” in my company and professional growth is stagnant? I posed this question to HR and managers only to receive dull feedback, which makes me feel they have no ideas or suggestions. I suggested I earn another bachelor’s degree in a field we need, but the tuition assistance program only permits me to take classes directly related to my current position. I have my letter of resignation ready to go and am simply waiting for the job market to improve, but I hate to start over again and prefer to avoid it if possible. What should I do?
This is a very applicable question to so many people. While we may know in our minds that “we can always be growing,” sometimes it just doesn’t feel like it!
The article calls out 3 things you can do, and I highly encourage you to read it.
I’ve also written my own book that covers similar territory – From Cornered To Corner Office. I’m obviously a bit biased, but I believe this book is a must-read for any professional who feels stuck or stalled in their career. Even if you think your career is going well, you never know when unexpected obstacles may present themselves! This book will prepare you for when that day may come.
