"If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone" - John Maxwell

Frustration at Workplace is a common issue. Employees constantly looking for job change, annoyed with Manager and many more issues.

“I have been working diligently for 3 years; they haven’t yet given me a promotion. I look around and see people getting ahead of me ‘out of turn’. That makes me sick!”

Does that situation sound familiar? What can you do? Unfortunately, working harder is not the solution. When you perform well in your job and know you are competent, in due course you expect to get new positions, promotions and pay raise. However, that doesn’t happen automatically.

Career development is a continuous process of learning and practice to equip for future. Increase your chances of formulating a well-administered career progression plan by understanding the common barriers faced by entry and mid-level professionals. Hear it from the career experts and grow in life and work.

  • Potential roadblocks for entry and mid-career professionals
