One of the 5 P’s of Life is “Profession” – your work, whether you work for someone or are self-employed. If you’re not satisfied with your work life, then take control and make changes. Set goals for this aspect of life by stretching your skills and expanding your network. Every Wednesday, we offer tips via Twitter to help you with your work life. Below are tips we tweeted last month.

Re-evaluate the size of your teams – too many people make it more difficult to reach a conclusion. 

If you’re not learning at work and feel stagnant, then take the initiative and do something – enroll in a class, find another job, volunteer in a leadership position. 

If you’re given an opportunity at work that leaves you caught between the fear of succeeding and the fear of failing, reframe your thoughts and accept the risk as a way to grow professionally – no matter the outcome. 

When re-entering the workforce after a break, start your job search by reaching out to your connections – the longer you’ve been out of the workforce, the greater your chance to find a job through someone you know instead of applying online. 

Even though it’s easier to communicate via technology (email, phone, text), face-to-face meetings are more impactful because you see all the non -verbal cues you can’t see via technology.
