Preparing to win senior leadership roles starts well before responding to the job advertisement. Authentically expressing your purpose, attributes and practices needs clarity and evidence well before the interview.
Knowing one’s purpose is the foundation to conveying passion and expertise and articulating why a senior position has good fit. Research confirms that people with callings (a sense of purpose) are more confident and make better decisions about their career. Therefore, it’s worthwhile getting ‘Purpose’ right. As you consider promotion, use these questions to guide your thinking:
- What is your calling? (the purpose in your career)
- How does the senior leadership role align with this calling?
- What do you need to convey about who you are as a leader?
- Who are the champions that will support you and what help do you need from them to get ready?
