Becoming Resilient > Self Empowerment

Self Empowerment

Your power to build resiliency lies within you. Accessing it is a matter of choice. In an era of downsizing, restructuring, market shifts, and technological change it’s important that you take charge of your own career and your own self-development. The implied employment contract (work hard for an organization and be rewarded lifetime employment and perhaps a steady rise in responsibility) has given way to free agency. Don’t expect someone else to guide your career. Approach your work with an entrepreneurial spirit. Create resiliency by giving yourself the freedom to make your own choices and to act on them.

“The organization needed an area supervisor in one of its departments. My boss sent me to take on the responsibility even though I’d never had that kind of position before. He said that he knew I wasn’t trained and that I had never done this, but he was sure that I could do it and to just do what I had to do to get the job done. I found out soon enough I could handle a group position. It improved my confidence in myself.”
