It’s a well-known fact that progressing your career can leave most comms professionals frustrated and scratching their heads. In a recent survey, lack of progression came as the number 1 reason for losing your staff. Surely it is time to get some clarity on the situation. What do you do as a Head of Comms wanting a seat at the board table? Or an agency Director wanting the next step up? Do you know how to go about it? Or perhaps you want to move from agency to in-house, like many PR professionals.
Resolutions are typically focused around attempting to deny your own deeply ingrained habits – the usual suspects; drink less, give up sugar, go the gym every day. Whereas goals are usually set with a view to where you want to be at the end of the year – a vision of where you will be on your career path, where you want to have travelled to, your financial situation. We ask the team to share their goals for 2016 and spread some inspirational cheer for the New Year.
