When did you last take some training?
When did you last invest in your own career? (Forget about what your employer does.)
Do you have a personal training plan?
Do you have a career plan?
Do you understand how your industry is being affected by technology, by regulatory change and by global competition?
Can a call centre in Africa do a part of your job … for a fraction of the cost?
Can a robot replace you … or some part of what you do?
Is your company being overtaken by disruption?
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Henry Ford
Take control of your own destiny, because life has a way of happening:
- have a great attitude (its all in your head);
- have a good work ethic (anyone can do this, but many don’t!); and
- have great skills.
Take advantage of every training opportunity possible AND invest in yourself!
