What are the 4 integral factors that measure one’s overall growth?
What gets us out of bed every morning? What is the meaning of life? Questions like these are deep ruminations that at the end of the day will lead nowhere without action, mistakes, learning, growth, and genuine self-reflexivity. As human beings, we all have an inherent desire to work towards self-actualization. What successful leadership speakers in the Philippines always make a point to instill in their many audiences is the will and motivation to move forward with wherever they are in their lives.
Leadership training is something that requires an individual to have a firm grasp and understanding of growth. Whatever stage you are in your career and life in general, it is imperative that one takes serious moments of assessment, both during times of success and utmost turmoil.
Below are the major foundations of when it comes to assessing where one stands on a career-based level as well as on more inwardly-directed planes:
How Much Influence Do You Have?
In terms of career, whether it is an individual pursuit or one’s place in an organization, one of the essential questions that you need to ask yourself is how much influence do you have in your field of professional work? On a professional level, how much value does your voice and your decision have on the direction of a project? While on a more personal level, how many valuable relationships have you gained throughout the months or years?
When you are able to answer these questions, it follows to examine what are the concrete and abstract things that you have learned from these relationships. It is not enough to gauge your overall growth as a person purely based on what you say has towards an operation. What are the things that you have learned about yourself and the things around you in the process?
The Impacts That You Have Made
Impact in this context is not just referring to change; it pertains to how much of a positive input you have made in your career as well as your life as a whole. Ask yourself what are the tangible things that you yourself have worked hard towards creating and developing because, at the end of the day, the journey is the destination.
To ground things, a more pragmatic question is: how do you feel on Mondays? Are Mondays something dreadful and dreary or are they something you constantly look forward to in anticipative glee? If your answer is leaning towards the latter, it is a good indicator that you feel a strong sense of meaning and purpose towards the driven impact that you foster with how you go about your career and life in general.
Objective evaluation is something that can be very tricky, especially with your professional life in coordination with personal life. But when it comes to measuring how far you’ve come as a person, these two are somewhat inseparable. Evaluate the problems that you are currently facing with work. And do a thorough examination of the previous problems that you have learned to overcome.
Strictly in terms of corporate goal-oriented careers, be objective by comparing your work growth with the established hierarchal chain, see if your progress and personal ‘goal schedules’ are in sync.
At the end of the day, evaluating your personal performance is taking a good look at how you feel towards failure, and in what ways this has matured over the years.
Honesty, Self-Reflection, and Introspection
Self-fulfillment is something that we find out for ourselves as we live our lives. There is no objective rule or guidebook that offers concrete universalities for something that is inherently subjective in nature. At the end of it all, it will always depend on how you feel about yourself and your place in your career or in life. Are you challenging yourself to your own standards that are rooted in your most intrinsic passions? Are you setting goals for yourself or are these shallow, contrived, and dependent on the recognition of others?
Take a good look at yourself and look back. What are the different detrimental habits that have always held you back? Are they continuing to haunt you or have you overcome them? What have you learned from overcoming these self-inflicted roadblocks? The honest answers that you give yourself are the key measures as to how you can truly assess your growth as a person.
Leadership speakers in the Philippines are faced with the challenging task of finding effective ways as to help people realize for themselves the inner confidence that all successful leaders exude. The best way to go about this is to be well-tuned with your inner vocations and visionary passions.
Leadership training means having strong and honest notions of where you are in your life and in what ways you are assuring that you are constantly growing as a person.
