Join author and business coach Dave Crenshaw as he demonstrates ways to discover what you're truly best at doing and how to leverage those strengths and abilities in your professional life. This course reveals how to uncover your strengths and talents, match them to job responsibilities, and develop a path to apply those strengths at work. Set yourself up for continued success with self-assessments and the ability to invest in yourself and make continual improvements as your career grows.
This course is one of a series of five Dave Crenshaw courses based on his Invaluable teaching methodology for professional development.
The principles you've learned are: first, focus as much of your effort as possible on using the talents that you have. Your talents are made up of the gifts you were born with, what you love to do, and the skills that you've acquired over time. Once you've identified your talents, try to focus your job responsibilities as much as possible on those talents, and if necessary, make a transition so that you can utilize those talents more. Also, work to build a positive relationship with your manager and those that you manage so that you can support each other in becoming more valuable.
Finally, establish a system of self-improvement and self-assessment, so you can continually improve your ability month after month. Do these things and live these principles, and you'll find it easier to steadily walk the path toward becoming invaluable.
