Career planning: Who will you decide to be ?

Which one of us has never aspired to have more fun at work or has not been dreamt of a career change?

A lot of us have, but have you already taken the time to really decide who you want to be before getting started on your personal career plan? Drafting a career development plan before even having clarity about your desired professional identity might lead to disappointment.

To help you kick-start your career development plan, start by asking yourself who you aspire to become:


Being your true self  at work, some would say,  is a risky exercise that could backfire in certain circumstances. That may well be the case, but what if that would be the price to pay in exchange  for more authenticity, more flow experiences  and ultimately more fulfillment.

Being true at work means capitalising on your strengths and on who you truly are and to address, with courage and drive, the one thing that might be limiting you from reaching your potential.

Deciding to set your career plan towards your TRUE SELF is about authenticity, courage and self development.



Being the best version of yourself is about shining. It’s about showing your best “You”, or communicating and highlighting your competences,  learning how to pitch yourself, or about branding yourself efficiently.

A career plan that propels you towards your BEST SELF is about daring,  assertiveness and influencing.



Becoming your dream self is what animates most of us. Such career plans can be a life journey but they can also be a decision you take now.

Deciding to be your DREAM SELF is about  being in the driving seat of your own life, it is about self-esteem and at the same time it is about generosity.


Who is it you will decide to be?
