You can now contemplate achieving things that could benefit any employer. But what? It must surely be something that strongly interests you, and at the same time will shape and forward your career. To this point, expertise and competence have been based on your training, intrinsic to your job, or gained by working on a special task. To move beyond holding down a secure job, you must actively develop yourself.

Something is Still Not Right

Developing specialist expertise and rising to challenges lets you stand out safely. As you get used to taking a lead, you increasingly notice and become distressed by time-wasting and failures that are due to:

Guidance here is naturally provided by principles derived from the community-centred mode.
