Climbing the ladder, rising through the ranks, making a vertical move! This is the dream right? You master your role then it’s onto the next? I think it’s safe to say that the majority of us enter the workforce with this mindset in tow. It wasn’t until I read Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In that I realized, the “ladder” is becoming obsolete and it’s okay to think of your career as an exploratory jungle gym. You don’t have to commit to one path or “play it safe” by simply exploring development opportunities that speak directly to career history or expertise. Maybe it’s a master’s degree, maybe it’s a podcast. There are plenty of ways to broaden your skillset and grow as a person and as a professional.
