You have achieved career success but may be asking whether you want more of the same or something different—and whether your work allows room to experiment.
If you’re in (or entering) a period of transition, you’re ready to consider whether you’ve outgrown your role or organization. But how will you know what you are looking for?
If you’re in a period of stability—with relative contentment—it probably makes sense to continue building on career choices you’ve made. But how can you create changes that make your job even more satisfying and make you a better leader?
Herminia Ibarra of INSEAD says these are times to apply the outsight principle. This principle holds that the way to think like a leader is to act: plunge yourself into projects and activities, interact with very different kinds of people, and experiment with unfamiliar ways of getting things done. Freshly challenging experiences transform habitual actions and thoughts that define your limits. In times of transition and uncertainty, thinking and introspection should follow action and experimentation. Not vice versa.
On June 15, 2016 in an interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Ibarra will share insights on personal and career transformation that begins with action, not introspection.
New experiences not only change how you think—your perspective on what is important—but also who you become.
For insights on accelerating your own personal transformation, join HBR and Herminia Ibarra on June 15.
