I hear it time and time again that it is HR’s or the Training Departments role to define my training calendar.

The reality is, it is your career, and you know what best suites your need to be able to deliver on your career dream.

People have turned into human robots where they sit and wait for others to do all the thinking for them and hope to have a successful career.

It would be nice to be able to just sit back and everything you dream of just falls into place, but the reality is this does not, nor will it ever happen.

No one needs to wait for permission to take their career, education,  skills, and experiences seriously. It is our responsibility to take control of our learning and development so we can progress into the careers we dream of.

You must take ownership of your own future and that starts with taking control of what you want to learn and how you want to develop.

When you make this mindset shift you will see a remarkable growth in your results leading to a possible career promotion.

Do the right thing by your career and take control of your learning and stop relying on others to be your motivation for growth.
