Career progression is the desire and goal of many people. No one wants to remain stagnant in their career. Everyone wants to reach the pinnacle of their career. 

Growth can mean different things for anyone. Probably, it might mean growing in capacity to handle different roles, management of workloads, increasing responsibilities, rising through the ranks and so much more.

Nimrod Kimani, a talent development and management specialist shared with us tips that have not only worked for him in his career but also for his clients. He has an impressive portfolio of executive clients whom he has managed and helped find more fulfilling jobs.

Here are the insights shared by the much sought-after speaker on career matters: 

  1. Continuous learning is important - industries are constantly evolving and you need to be on your toes. Career development should be your highest priority. Always update yourself with the latest trends in your industry. 

  2. Empower yourself to face job interviews by engaging other professionals on various subject matters. You can do this by learning or upskilling on what your relevant industry desperately needs.

  3. Your network is your net worth - regularly attend networking events. Interact with your next hiring manager. “Tell the world what you want to do. When the door of opportunity knocks, they will remember you.”

  4. Measure growth - It is best to have small and sequential milestones that mark your progress. These milestones will act as checkpoints for success. They will motivate you to start, continue and finish your next task. You can know you have grown by achieving the milestones through the process.

  5. Have a clear picture of what growth means to you. Does it mean more responsibilities, more skills, more networks, a stronger brand etc.

What are the indicators of growth?

Work-life balance is a huge indicator of career growth. If where you currently are there is no work-life balance despite earning more money, it wouldn’t be considered as growth.

Nimrod emphasizes that you should be growth-oriented. Don’t be money-oriented. Growth comes with a lot of perks including: 

  • Better roles

  • Better pay

  • Better benefits
