Less than two weeks into 2022, it is not too late to set goals and make resolutions for the new year. Especially when it comes to working, we always have new benchmarks to reach or areas for improvement. Even if you don’t have specific ones in mind, just the act of setting goals can help bring intention and purpose to the workday. Here are five goals that anyone can set, no matter your field of work.
1. Level Up Your Professional Presence
Whether you are looking for a new job or thriving in your current role, there are always ways to level up your professional presence. Start with revamping your LinkedIn profile and take the time to learn how you can get the most out of the site. Research professional groups to join or look on Meet Up for events in your field. You can also learn a new skill. Continually learning is a great way to add new tools to your business or can help with a job switch. Classes from General Assembly and Skillshare are a fun way to learn online, on your own time.
2. Make a Workspace Switch
2022 is the perfect time to switch workspaces or explore a new type of office space solution. For those already in a shared workspace, check out a new meeting room or co-working desk. Take time this year to explore all of the amenities and support your location offers.
If your current office space is not cutting it anymore, it is time to shift to a shared workspace! From full-service lounge areas to gyms, you’ll be able to bask in the amenities. You’ll also experience the support of professional staff who can answer calls, receive mail, and more. The list of benefits is endless- but see for yourself and put a tour of AdvantEdge Workspaces on your list!
3. Produce Productivity
“New year, new me” is a phrase often accompanied by lofty goals for productivity. Instead of letting them fall by the wayside, create an action plan that you can stick to. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for motivation during the workday. Explore different productivity methods to find one that suits your style and line of work.
4. Get Out and Explore
There is more to work than sitting in the office. Find ways to get up from your desk during the day. A change of scenery will help improve your focus and overall well-being. Take a meeting while on a walk, set up at a local coffee shop, try out a new lunch place, or attend a network/industry event. A little variety in your schedule is necessary to being a well-balanced employee.
5. Build a Better Team
After the challenges of remote and hybrid work, now is the time to strengthen and build your team. Now more than ever, share positive feedback and affirmations with everyone. We’ve rounded up some great ways to celebrate wins here. You can also boost morale and relationships through meetings, in-person or virtually. Ultimately, relationships are the core of your team, so focus on activities and daily practices that foster communication and positive experiences.
