Taking control of your working life

Some strategies that help people take control of their working lives:

  1. Review your own performance – what have you achieved in the past 12 months?
    1. What have you added to your job?
    2. What can you do that you couldn’t do a year ago?
    3. What’s your contribution and has it been noticed?

Reflect with a someone who is good at remnding you what you are good at.

Employer pitch: “This is how I have made a difference…”

  1. Negotiate ways to reshape your job.
    1. New learning opportunities
    2. Fresh experience/contacts

Present moderate suggestions for moderate alterations to your job and offer them a sensible deal between what you want and what they want.
