It doesn’t have to cost a lot to advance your professional development. That’s one of our mottos around the Riverpoint Management office, where we employ the following strategies to successfully sharpen our skill sets as we chase our career goals:
• Asking for Feedback: With honest input from colleagues and supervisors, we’re better equipped to make real improvements. Even critical notes come from a supportive place, so we know what we hear will be in our best interests.
• Reading and Listening: Our Riverpoint Management reading lists and listening queues keep on growing. There are so many valuable audiobooks and podcasts that can help us get to where we want to be in terms of business acumen. We’re still only scratching the surface, but we’re enjoying the process as well. There are always new recommendations going around our office, along with fresh insights from our recent discoveries.
• Establishing Clear Objectives: Our learning on the job begins with well-defined objectives for what we want to accomplish. We measure our progress toward our goals so we can make adjustments when necessary. Throughout the year, we also fine-tune our objectives to make sure they still align with our ultimate career aspirations.
These simple techniques help us make steady progress in our professional development efforts. To find out more about our company culture, follow us on https://www.facebook.com/riverpointmanagement
