Building a professional development plan can be a game-changer. Or at least, it was for me. My PDP allowed me to explore what I truly wanted in my career. I spent time considering what kind of role I was interested in, the type of partnerships that I was willing to invest in, and what my boundaries should be going forward. Through this process, I am continually re-assessing my goals, career objectives and prioritizing my professional growth and aspirations. There is not a one size fits all version of success. Reaching the pinnacle of your career might mean something very different from one person to another. To me, that is the beauty of life - each of us chasing after our own dreams, supporting one another, and cheering each other on.
I hope you spend some quality time with yourself and make the determination to take control of your career and start developing it with intent.
