Here's Your Five-Step Process to Develop a Career Plan - Forward to Anyone Who Needs to Stop Whining and Be Accountable for Themselves....

I'm up at the Halogen Software Blog talking about the value of Career Plans.  You're tired of employees not taking accountability for their own performance, right?  Great, then you'll love this.  Check out this sample:

"Let’s slow this train down and talk about what’s really important: You.

My job is to be your agent. Your personal Jerry McGuire. Your Ari Gold.

You? You’re Turtle or Rod Tidwell. I’m the guy who looks out for you.

It’s my job to give you tough news. So here it is:

You’re floating in your career. If you were floating any more, you’d be getting ready to be eaten by Bill Murray in Caddyshack amongst screams of horror. You look like you’re mailing it in. You want to move up and make more money. You’re frustrated because it’s not happening quickly enough.

The reason you’re floating is pretty simple. You don’t have a career plan. You’re showing up and doing work, but it’s not directed in a way that’s going to give you maximum (or possible any) career benefit."

If you want to move up in your career, you need to change your approach. Luckily for you, I’ve got five things you can do to make sure everyone who matters understands the impact you have on the business."

Great advice. Clear step by step approach to taking control of your own career. Love the advice on creating and sharing a portfolio. Looking forward to taking action on career growth.

And I understand this isn't the point, but Ari represents Vince, not Turtle.
