Chapter 9. Marketing Your Professional S... > Defining Your Professional Success

Defining Your Professional Success

The last but certainly not the least component of being in charge of your career is your definition of professional success. This statement serves as your measurement of your place in the training, HRD, and workplace learning and performance profession.

How much time and energy do you give to your job? How much are you willing to give to a future job? Does it depend on whether you are working for someone else or for yourself? More to the point, how many years do you expect to work? If you’re a typical training, HRD, or workplace learning and performance professional, your answer probably is, “For a long time,” or “Too long” or “Until I can retire.” Ideally, when the time comes for you to transition into retirement and a new phase of your adult life, you’ll feel that you’ve achieved professional success and that it was compatible with your values and sense of fulfilling work. That outcome would reflect a very skilled career manager indeed!
