Here is what to keep in mind as you tool your reinvention »

At some point in your career, transitioning into an an industry that has richer prospects than the one you have come to know may give you room to grow. Here is what to keep in mind as you tool your reinvention:

  • Flexibility is key - As you contemplate a change, having the right mindset is key. It is important to have realistic expectations.
  • Heed cultural cues - Culture matters. It can be nourishing and thrilling; it can be defeating and stressful. Culture hugely impacts your experience.
  • Network - Your network is an excellent resource. See who you know and where they are positioned. Ask questions. Build momentum. Learn what you need to about positions and industries you are targeting.
  • Tell the right story - Change gives you the chance to see your experience, skill set and goals from a different vantage point. That’s empowering. Use the momentum.

Transition, timed right, is powerful. As the shot caller of your own career, you have to be bold, brave, energised. Enact your decisions when you see what is coming, not after it is here. Enact foresight not afterthought.
