LinkLog: Invest In Yourself

Can’t think of a better advice for this year. In the information economy, staying current is the name of the game, says Janine.

Maybe an update in your computer skills, in new applications that will improve your efficiency is your best investment–this year. Maybe sharpening your collaboration skills so you can get more from your project teams is your best investment–this year. Maybe learning how to run a 20-minute meeting that produces big results in your best investment–this year.  Maybe learning to tap into your creativity is the thing that will improve your value–this year. Ask your manager, peers, and team mates about what would make you a better contributor in the workplace…they’re likely to tell you. And do it annually, better yet 2 or 4 or 6 times a year.  Review your value just as you do your financial portfolio; take responsibility for maximizing your value.
