How To Climb The Ladder

Is your career on track? Through a successful career planning strategy and constant revision of that strategy you can achieve your career goals. According to the experts 'the great heights you wish to reach are not entirely out of your hands'.

How to climb the ladder

Establish yourself as someone with leadership potential and you could be well on your way to securing one of the higher rungs on your very own corporate ladder.

And the good news is that the great heights you wish to reach are not entirely out of your hands. With a successful career planning strategy you too can get to where you want to go.

“The secret behind effective career planning lies in how often one embarks on this exercise. If we consider how frequently many people change jobs in this day and age, it makes sense that we should all return to the drawing board on a regular basis to ensure we’re on track to reach our higher goals and ambitions,” says leading comprehensive staffing specialist, Kelly’s managing director, Lawrence Wordon.

Indeed, experts advise that those serious about acquiring leadership positions should set aside time at least once a year to establish what they want from their careers and how they’re going to get there.

During this session it is also a good idea to map the path your career has taken thus far, so that you can learn from your past to shape your future.

Career coach and head of Executive People Development Solutions, Lorraine Ingram agrees and the advice she gives is candid: “Have a vision and a ‘to do list’ consisting of what you need to do to get where you want to go. And remember to include ‘the how’ and more importantly, the ‘by when’ date. You must also be driven and passionate in executing your plan, and consider appointing a coach to help you on your journey and keep you focused.”
