5 ways to revive a stalled career
A head start over others
It could be a really small step like changing the routine, or the time when one clocks in or clocks out, organising your life to strive for a better work-life balance, or even taking on a new project that would potentially involve working with a different set of people, he says.
You can even consider taking up a part-time, or online, course to enhance your skills and take up more challenging projects. Samira Gupta, a life coach in Delhi, says these newer skills can also be life skills, like networking and how to be a better manager or team player.
Identify a goal
Identify a goal or multiple goals, and how to get to it. Research has shown that people who have goals are happier and more successful than people who don’t. Writing down goals also makes you more likely to achieve it than if you just formulate it in your head, according to many studies.
Seek a mentor
It could be a boss, a senior leader or a professional. Moran says most people at the top are more than willing to counsel or advice once they find that the person is truly interested in listening and acting upon their suggestion.
Research shows that women tend to be more agreeable and less assertive compared to men. Working on being more assertive and asking for what you want are keys to revive your career.
