A great way to boost your career is to always look for new ways to learn, recommends Katrena Friel, founder of Activated Life Long Learners.
People that learn throughout their career understand the importance of investing in their own knowledge and enjoy the process of learning something new, she says.
The mindset of people who feel they've already completed their schooling only update their skills when they have been retrenched, sacked or miss out on a promotion, she says.
“Some people also only go to training or coaching if their employer pays for it. They would never pay for their own development, thinking it's someone else's responsibility to look after their career.”
Shift your thinking so that you're open to being a lifelong learner, which means you're taking responsibility for your career and being curious about your true capability, she says.
