Get Past Your Career Plateau

Crawford Thomas Recruiting Blog

As we enter the second quarter of the year more employees are looking to climb the career ladder, manage work-life balance and increase happiness, here are four simple ways on how to get past your career plateau with some positive changes, according to Instant Offices:

Get Involved in Teamwork

Volunteer to take on a challenging client project or pitch internal projects with coworkers. Collaboration and teamwork can increase creativity, help strengthen relationships, create a more positive work environment and boost confidence. Some studies also suggest team partnerships can increase productivity at work.

Stay Busy

Boredom at work is a significant source of stress and can lead to depression and disinterest. Ensure you take regular breaks during long tasks, but during quiet periods, keep yourself busy by learning a new skill or pursuing personal goals that can assist with your career.

Upskill Yourself

Increase your value at work by learning a new skill. Research by World Economic Forum shows that over a third (35%) of skills that are considered important today will change in five years.

Prioritize Mental Health

It is imperative to recognize the signs that your mental health may be under pressure and to ensure you de-stress regularly. Take a mental health day, if you’re a hard worker and your supervisors and managers appreciate the work you do daily, they will certainly understand if you need a day off to reset the batteries.

Take charge of your happiness and be proactive by contributing to a work environment that sees you excel rather than be demotivated as we enter the second quarter of 2019.
