Whether you are an official leader in your workplace or not, you must embrace the mindset of a leader when it comes to your personal career management. Stay current in your field, or investigate new ways to play to your strengths.  Have the courage and confidence to talk about what you do well and map out a short-term and long-term plan with action steps so you can achieve the goals you so well deserve.

You need not do this all alone. Tap the expertise of your personal Board of Directors, especially your accountability master to keep you on track and be in control of your career destiny. You deserve to be in charge of your own career – so assume that leadership role now!
