#9: How To Figure Out Your Professional Gaps And Reach Your Career Goals

Mar 7, 2024

Are you stuck at a career crossroads and confused about WHAT to do next?

Want to progress within your current company — but aren’t sure HOW to get to the ‘next level’ professionally?

Today, I’m sharing one of my most popular career planning tools to help you clarify your career goals and create a plan to reach them.

Every day, I speak to people who feel frustrated and stuck in their careers. I’ve taken my clients through a simple career gap analysis which many have found helpful.

A gap analysis is often used to assess business performance or identify skill gaps in an organisation. However, you can apply the same method to your own career and professional goals.

In today’s episode, you’ll discover a four-step strategy to:

  • Assess your current situation, so you can identify your unique strengths and transferable skills
  • Clarify your long-term vision, work drivers and career goals to understand the skills required to reach the ‘next level’
  • Define your development areas so you know exactly what to work on to achieve your career objectives
  • Develop a plan to close these gaps, accomplish your goals and minimise risk with your next move
