Do you have big plans for your career but feel like you aren’t making progress? It’s a common feeling. The problem is that we tend to recognize our career growth only with notable milestones like completing a course or an upward move to the next level. But let’s face it. Big moves don’t happen every day and aren’t always possible. The reality is that most careers are built steadily over time. Not by way of big steps. Our learning happens daily but we don’t recognize the progress we are making because it’s so gradual. What if you could change that? What if we put more focus on our day-to-day learning? It’s one of the best (and simplest) things you can do to enhance your career growth. These small (and easy to do) but powerful daily habits will help.   Read Reading has so many benefits that's it's definitely worth making a daily habit! And before you jump to "I don't have time", reading doesn’t have to mean an entire book! How about reading an article on an industry website? Or a blog post from an industry influencer or trend setter. Read a professional development book a few pages or one chapter at a time. (This can be effective in absorbing more information as well!) Do it just before or after lunch. Find a spot in the day that works. Try reading a news article on a current affairs issue to learn more. Read bios of business leaders or people that interest you. If you are short on time, commit to reading a novel 5 minutes at a time before bed. The point is…just read . Choose to do it . Make it a daily habit . Reading - expands your thinking challenges your perspective incites creativity and improves your vocabulary All of those things will enhance your career success. (Not to mention make you a very interesting person to talk to.)   Exercise your curiosity Nothing supports growth better than encouraging and feeding your curiosity. Ask questions. Learn something new. Once again this isn’t about massive leaps. Ask a question in a meeting. Learn about the work of a colleague or friend. Look up the meaning of an unfamiliar word. Find out more about the latest app. You get the idea. Commit to learning or discovering one new thing every day. It all adds up. Seeking answers or new ideas supports communication and research skills and helps to sustain a positive and optimistic mindset. It is the best antidote for complacency. Every time you embrace your curiosity you are opening yourself to new and different ideas, learning from the experience of others and adding to your basket of knowledge. Make it a habit. It will keep you moving forward and help shape your career.   Reflect and Record This is easy and fun and takes only a minute. And it can be surprisingly powerful. Write down just one thing from the day that you are proud of. Make it positive. Something you accomplished or learned or feel you did really well. The key is to reflect quickly. Don’t dwell on it or take a lot of time. What comes to mind first? This simple habit can help you recognize the growth you are making over time. The real power happens when you read back. You will see what is important to you. It may help remind you of milestones when updating your resume or preparing for an interview. It can even provide insight into the direction for your career as you recognize what you have accomplished or what excited you.   The key is to make these small steps a habit - a part of your daily routine. They don’t take much time at all. Do them consciously and they will become second nature. Remember: Read daily Exercise your curiosity daily Reflect and record daily Make these a habit and when the opportunity comes for you to take a big step in your career you’ll be that much further ahead.   Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.

  We never quite lose that back-to-school feeling do we? Remember as a kid that sense of excitement or anticipation…or even anxiety? As September arrived we knew the fun-filled days of summer were over. It was back to schedules, homework and extra curricular activities. But despite wishing the long summer days would last, there was plenty to look forward to. Reuniting with friends we hadn’t seen all summer. A new outfit. And backpack. New school supplies. (Especially a brand new set of coloured pencils!) Our favourite activity or club began again and the weather was mostly still warm and wonderful. In some ways it was nice to slip back into routine. Maybe a fresh start to do better? Ever notice how that back-to-school mindset carries over to the business world? The summer tends to bring a relaxed atmosphere at the office. Folks are away on holidays, meetings are a bit less frequent and often more casual. Long patio lunches are enjoyed along with short Fridays and lots of long weekends. And if you were lucky enough, maybe you enjoyed some well-needed time away from work. And then comes September. It’s back to serious business and routine and a full schedule. Why not embrace that “back to work” mentality and let it energize you into action? September marks the end of the third quarter of the year and is a great month to plan and execute a successful year-end! Here are some ideas on making September an awesome month for your business and for you personally! Review Your Business Plan September is a perfect month to review business plan for the year and see how you are doing. This is especially helpful if you aren’t doing it on a regular basis. If you are right on track, great. Keep up your plans to make sure all your objectives are met or exceeded! If you feel like you are falling behind this is the perfect time to set a plan to catch up. You still have several months to ensure you have your best year yet! It’s not too late! Start With A Bold Move Make that phone call or have that meeting you’ve been putting off. Get the one thing done you are dreading most. Don’t let it weigh you down. Jump in. Boldly taking care of something you aren’t really looking forward to will set the tone and energize you to push toward a great year end. Reconnect Remember how great it was to see friends after the long summer when you were in school? Using that same sentiment, get in touch with an old colleague or friend…or both. It’s easy to let relationships slide and hard work to keep them. But we all know how valuable they are. September is a great time to reconnect…and you’ve got a great opener! “How was your summer?” Start Fresh Just like with back to school, start September with a clean slate. Prepare for the busy months ahead. Clean up your desk. Refreshing your workspace will help clear the way for a great final quarter. There is truth to the idea that physical clutter can also clutter our thinking! Clean out your email or old files and photos and even your briefcase/backpack. Check your supplies and buy anything you need. (Maybe those new coloured pencils?) Bring a little green warmth into the office with a new plant. Buy something new to wear. Seriously. Nothing like a fresh outfit to dish up a boost of confidence! Don’t over commit It’s common to have the September calendar fill up quickly with everyone in the same mindset of “getting back down business”. Between business, social commitments and re-adjusting to family routines it can quickly become overwhelming. Try to leave a bit of breathing space in your schedule. It will help you stay on track with your own plan. Take the Pressure Off the Holidays (Yes they are really that close!) Knowing how busy the holiday season can be, do something in September that helps take the pressure off. Book the company lunch or party. Plan where your friends will have their annual dinner. Buy one (or more) of the gifts you know will be on your shopping list. We all know that once September arrives, the holidays are not far behind. Make a to-do list and get a jump on it. Every little thing you do now will make a big difference later.             Stretch the Summer Don’t forget - when September arrives there are officially still a few weeks of summer remaining. Make a point to continue enjoying the great weather. The long winter will feel that much shorter. Have a couple of patio lunches while the weather still permits! Make your days off count by being outdoors as much as possible. It will do wonders for your well being.     Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.

Have you ever asked your boss about attending an industry conference…only to be tuned down?   Or found a conference that really interests you but you're hesitant to ask your boss about going?   Viewpoints on the benefits of attending an industry conference can vary significantly.   Your boss may be very open to the idea. Or not.   Many bosses will view your interest in a very positive light. They will be encouraged to see you proactively seeking new opportunities for professional development.   Others may not be so sure. Some will  be skeptical of the benefits. Many will have concerns about budget constraints and workload issues. Add to that the pressures of other things on their mind and you could find yourself in a tangle of obstacles.   However,   Much of their decision will come down to how you present the idea.   If you take it seriously and genuinely believe there is a benefit to you and ultimately the company you will have a much better chance of getting a “yes”.   Nothing will make them more doubtful than you coming to them with  a cursory idea of what the event is all about. If your intent is to get away from the office for a few days and to squeeze in a little sight seeing, they will see right through.   Show them this is important to you by presenting a well thought out proposal.   The key is preparation. Ensure you are as familiar as possible with event details and be ready to answer any questions he/she might have.   First a few things to consider:   Is this an event for your industry or in support of your functional expertise? Example. Your company is in Insurance. You are the Sales Manager. Is the conference for the insurance industry or is it a conference for sales professionals?   If the conference is for the industry that your company serves, your boss will likely be familiar with it. You may have to give more background if the conference is related to your particular function.   Here is a plan for your best chance at getting a “Yes”.   Choose the right event.  Be honest with yourself first. Do you truly see the potential benefits to you and the company based on the content? The company is going to make an investment in you. How will you convince your boss if you aren't sure yourself? Be realistic. Is the event local or across the country? You may want to start local first especially if this is your first time attending an event.   Pick the right time to talk to your boss Book time with your boss specifically to talk about the opportunity. Do not catch your boss in the hallway or poke your head in their door and throw out the idea and expect a good response. (You don’t know what else is on their mind at the time.)   Do your research. Here are some things to know : how long an event has been running and the frequency the typical attendance and demographic (speaks to relevance) the background of the organization producing the event. Have they been doing this awhile? What others do they produce? (Speaks to credibility.)   Have the facts at your fingertips: Dates of the conference and time away Be prepared with the exact days you will be away Consider things like needing to leave early the day prior to catch your flight or to drive Know an overview of the format of the event (main session, breakouts, tradeshow etc.) Speak to the relevance/timeliness of topics and presenters. Be ready to name keynote speakers and other presenters   Be prepared to articulate the benefits to you Identify segments of the program will particularly benefit you and your work Don’t just name a particular speaker without adding their subject matter and why that could be of benefit. Be as specific as possible regarding what you hope to learn. If the event is to enhance your career development, be prepared to explain how you see this impacting your work. Networking opportunities. Will there be clients or other industry members there? How might meeting with some of these folks benefit you?   Will there be benefits you can share with colleagues or the company as a whole? Is there a particular session at the event that directly ties into a challenge or opportunity facing your company? How could your learning benefit others you work with?   Do you have feedback from others who have attended the conference in the past? Share with your boss any relevant feedback from others who have attended If you don’t know anyone who has attended, ask the conference organizer if there is someone you could speak with as a reference How did it benefit their work? Would they attend again?   How will you report back? Letting your boss know you are prepared to report back is a great sign that you respect the investment and time away. Suggest that you will prepare a report of key learnings and new ideas to be shared with your boss and/or coworkers Whatever you do, follow through with your promise when you return   Provide assurance your work will be covered It is important that you acknowledge you have thought through the impact of your time away. Prepare a plan of how your work will be covered. Note anything pressing you are working on and timelines of how you expect to complete the work on schedule despite time away. Confirm that others you assume to cover you are not away or overly busy at a similar time.   Prepare a detailed budget Demonstrate your understanding that there can be much more to the overall cost of attending a conference than just the registration fee. Create a total budget for the cost to attend. Include: Registration fee (note if there is a reduced fee for early registration and the deadline) Additional fees for materials, special sessions etc. if applicable Transportation Flights or other Transportation (to and from airport and to and from event venue if applicable) Car rental if necessary Accommodation Meals Parking Entertainment, service tips etc.   Value input and discussion from your boss Is your boss familiar with the event? (Provide them with documents or links so they can have a look at the program.) Do they know anyone who has attended and benefited from the experience? Are there any of the speakers or topics that they would like to ensure your cover?     All of this detail may not come up in the conversation but the best thing you can do is to be prepared. Don’t get caught stumbling for answers - you will seem not to be taking it seriously.   Your best chance for success is to show you understand this is a business decision.   Be confident. The preparation will make you so.   Your boss may want time to consider your request. If so, ask if you can schedule a time to talk about it again. Follow through with confidence.   Despite all of your efforts, your boss may say “no”. You’ll have to accept that.   Ideally they will explain their reasons...but might not. Keep in mind you don’t know everything they are dealing with. They may have had previous bad experiences with conference-goers, may have other plans for you or may have someone else in mind to attend.   If the answer is no. Don’t argue. Suggest budgeting for someone to go next time. Let your boss know you’ll follow up with someone who attended to get their feedback so you’ll know for another time.   If the answer is yes. Great!   Whatever you do, be very certain to prepare for your time away as indicated. And follow up on all of your promises of reporting back. Make your report practical with examples of realistic opportunities and actionable items.   Whatever the outcome, if you have prepared well you will leave your boss with a positive impression. You will have demonstrated your interest and openness to professional development. They will be impressed and that you have treated the opportunity seriously and understand the investment involved.   And that could lead to other opportunities down the road.         Post by Margaret Johnston, eventswork.com As a career event professional, Margaret brings valuable insight and knowledge to the recruitment, management and development of high-performance teams for the event industry.
