In many professions, people who are highly capable individuals never realise their true career potential. I know that during my 25 year career in accountancy it was not always the best accountants who made it to the more senior levels.
As someone who climbed the career ladder starting as a 16 year old with minimum qualifications and progressing through the ranks to Finance Director before deciding to set up my own business, I noticed a number of things that seemed to get in the way of success.
I recently did a free teleseminar where I spoke about some of the reasons why people might be stopping themselves even getting to the starting gate. I shared my view on the biggest mistake that people make in their CV and offered some tips on interview success.
A link to the audio of that event is available below
If you find it valuable, I invite you to check out the Career Accelerator Self Coaching Workbook that I refer to towards the end of the recording.
As always, please leve any comments, observations or tips that you would add from your own experience.
In summary since 2006 I’ve worked with in excess of 6,000 accountants and professionals in workshops, seminars and one to one helping them achieve career success and become better leaders and presenters. Before that I spent 25 years in accountancy climbing the career ladder from Payments Clerk to FD. I’m a CIMA Fellow, Certified Professional Coach and Team Coach Facilitator.
