FCW : November 30, 2012
26 November 30, 2012 FCW.COM relationships are simple, xed, long-term and hierarchical --- whereas most careers and supervisory relationships today are often complex, shifting, short- term and transactional. So you have to be prepared to adjust and adapt every step of the way. If you love leading efforts, nd a small task nobody else wants and lead it well. Allen Zeman Allen Zeman is president of the Center for Human Capital Innovation, which he created after a 20-year, Senior Executive Service-level career serving in various Pentagon and deployed assignments. Learn your passions for work and make them central to how you manage your own career. Take a free, online self-assessment to learn more about who you are as a professional and what things at work excite you. Then nd assignments that optimize your engagement. If you love leading efforts, nd a small task nobody else wants and lead it well. If you love IT, nd opportunities to become the go-to expert on a particular IT topic. In any case, measure the outcomes and get ready for more opportunities to be sent your way and for moving your engagement levels to new heights. Do not focus your energies on one senior manager or leader. Each manager/leader has his or her own de nitions and preferences about performance. There is also a risk that you will overemphasize doing what works just for...that manager or leader, [who] may or may not be there for you in the future. And the view of the many is likely to be more useful and accurate than the feedback from one. It is outdated advice to complete tons of training courses and earn multiple certi cations. Courses and certi cations are not good proxies any longer for genuine productivity, and what selecting of cials are looking for are candidates with a proven history of delivering measurable outcomes. They want "aha" stories, and those seldom occur during a training course. Get out of the of ce! Accept a short-term, rotational assignment to another agency or division within your agency. Join an online community of practice, volunteer for a project that requires civil servants from multiple agencies, write entries to a federal blog or an article for FCW, or visit an agency like yours at the state level or in another country. There are many ways to get out of the of ce, and if you select well, you will learn more about your current position and agency. ■ YOUR CAREER SPONSORED BY BROCADE SCAN THIS QR CODE with your smartphone for the full research report TO LEARN MORE, VISIT: FCW.COM/BIGDATARESEARCH TOPICS INCLUDE: Why you should care about Big Data More robust analytical tools needed The data deluge conundrum The Big Data talent hunt Overcoming the Big Data challenges Research Report
