Get out of your comfort zone
Nicole Witt, Executive Director The Adoption Consultancy, told The Grindstone request a challenging work assignment that takes you out of your comfort zone. Choose one that will enable you to interact with new people and departments. “You never know who you might meet or what new interest you may discover. At a minimum, you get to showcase a skill set that others maybe don’t realize you have. ” She also suggested volunteering to take on a special project within the company — such as running the blood drive.
Career expert Mark Anthony Dyson says, “If your current gig is boring, do you need a larger platform? Perhaps you’re ready to accept a position that will draw a larger audience, or a riskier ground-breaking project. Ask your immediate supervisor for more responsibility if possible. It may show where you really stand, so be ready for feedback (not always the positive kind).”
