If you started work a few years back and are still stuck in the same position at the office and feeling uninspired, then perhaps it’s time to reinvent yourself. You know that you have more potential and that you can offer so much more, so now is the time to change.
Find out how others view you
This is the best place to begin. You may have strengths that you are not even aware of. Ask your co-workers what they deem your hidden strengths are, and you will most likely be pleasantly surprised.
Now, work on these and polish them up!
Master new skills
You cannot improve and reinvent yourself if you don’t learn at least one new skill. Seek new skills that will be useful to the company where you work and take a course or classes. Once you have mastered them, let your co-workers know and look to include the skills into your position or volunteer for projects or a job that requires them.
Connect with other professionals
Your friends may not always be an inspiration when you are trying to find new skills to master, but connecting with other professionals or a mentor sure will. Look to people that you admire and see what skills they have that interest you. These people can be from the same industry as yours or, even better, from another industry.
One of the best dynamics in any job is to power dress for the position. These changes need not be drastic or expensive, but enough to give you the confidence that will make an impression on those around you.
Beat the competition
Competition is healthy in the workplace, so, look for that one person that is your biggest competitor and aim to beat them, proving that you are better.
Reinvention cannot be completed in a week. Keep at it and persevere until you start getting noticed.
