Keeping your eye on your goals

Good managers like you know how to set goals and milestones for your organisation.


But what about your personal career goals? Do you “manage” them as you do your organization’s goals?


And here’s another question: have ever used a GANTT chart (or other project management tool) to manage your career? Your career, after all, is probably one of the most important projects in your life!


Sadly, in over 35 years of working with talented managers, I have never met a single one who has managed their own career.


There are probably many reasons for this, but I want to make sure that you understand one thing: just because you’re talented, don’t expect your dreams to chase you. You must do the chasing.


Unfortunately, 70% of managers fail to realize this. What about the other 30? They know the secret. They manage their careers like a multi-million dollar project.


What are the consequences of failing to manage your career? Lots of wasted energy on unfocused activities. Why not use that fuel to pave your way to the corner office?


Let’s get started now. Click here to receive my Great Managers are Made collection, a series of nine short posts that will put you on the right track towards results-oriented career management.


And always remember:


Great managers are made. Not born.
