Developing Your HR Career Plan – Building Your Roadmap Properly managing your HR career development is a critical component to being successful in your organization as well as in finding fulfillment in your work life. While you won’t be able to control everything that happens in your career, such as the effects of corporate restructuring or personnel movements, having a roadmap that will provide you with a sense of direction and confidence will help you to stay focused and better see new opportunities to advance your career when they arise. Developing that roadmap will likely require some internal searching and external dialogue with colleagues, mentors and/or coach to ensure you are being realistic and on the right path. Regardless of what stage you are at in your career, there are some key points to cover to ensure you are adequately prepared to manage your development. Assess Yourself Self-assessment is a critical component to ensure you are heading down the right path – that you’ve identified the right ‘Destination’ – and should be the first step you make. It should involve reflecting on your values and what holds real meaning for you, assessing your own strengths and weaknesses, discussing your thoughts with unbiased HR peers or contacts who you can trust (e.g. colleagues, coach, etc.). Personality assessments such as Facet 5 or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ( MBTI ) are also very helpful by providing a base to start from and some indication of how fulfilling/satisfying you will find certain paths in your career.
