Set Goals and Track Your Progress if You Want to Advance Rapidly
Too often, entry-level professionals step into jobs and expect management to tell them what they should be doing next. You can stand out by showing management your willingness to set goals, track your progress, and report to management your progress.
This simple technique will show your management they don’t need to micromanage you and that you are leadership material.
Roberta will get you thinking about critical career-launching strategies.
- Set goals for what you want to get out of your time at the job.
- Keep track of every assignment you do and write down the results.
- Build relationships and find yourself a mentor and/or sponsor.
Presenter: Roberta Roberts
HOW I HELP: I help my clients achieve their goals through one-on-one coaching (https://robertaoroberts.com/vip), group coaching, and free life and career tips on my blog at https://robertaoroberts.com. I also founded Grace for the Grind™ Career Mastermind, a private online community for Christian women lawyers, law students, and young professionals who want God’s grace for the professional grind. You can read more about it at https://app.graceforthegrind.com.
WHY IT WORKS: I am a lawyer just like you/future you (being a lawyer is my day job when I am not coaching!) and I have been through the ups and downs of going to law school, taking the Bar exam (I’ve taken and passed two of them), and looking for a legal job, so I can understand your unique challenges and relate to your frustrations. I have also helped dozens of law students and lawyers take control of their professional development and achieve their life and career goals, so I have experience to draw from for each client. I am also a certified John Maxwell Team Leadership Coach, Speaker, & Trainer, and certified Christian life coach, and Maxwell Method DISC Behavioral Analysis Consultant. But aside from a proven track record and certifications, my listening skills, ability to ask the right questions, and skill in breaking down big ideas into an actionable plan makes coaching with me work.
WHY IT MATTERS TO YOU: You have goals you want to achieve and places you want to go in your career, but you may be lacking the personal guidance you need that aligns with your values. That’s where I come in!
