Can you develop your skills for your next job – even your dream job – while still in your current role? Yes. You can, and you should. Halelly will show you how in today’s Ask Halelly episode.

Here’s another Ask Halelly episode of the TalentGrow Show, where Halelly answers a question from a listener, a member of the audience at one of her conference speaking events, a learner in one of her corporate workshops, or a member of the media.

First, Halelly reminds you that you own your development, and encourages you to be proactive in developing the skills you need for your next job. Then, she shares five broadly useful transferable skills to focus on plus suggests specific, non-training, low-budget ideas for how you to grow them, while still in your current role. And even without any involvement from your current boss if it’s not possible.

We all know about the importance of networking for our careers. But many of us struggle with making authentic and truly valuable connections, and what’s more, not losing touch with them in the flow of our busy daily lives. On this episode of The TalentGrow Show, Halelly brings on a unique guest: musician and producer Sean Hurwitz, who succeeds in making time for seemingly everyone and maintaining truly authentic connections and relationships with people in his network.

While networking comes naturally to Sean and he doesn’t view it as a business strategy, he breaks down for us the day-to-day realities of making and keeping authentic connections and shares the stories that highlight how networking helped him become the successful musician and producer he is today. We even discuss strategies for seeking and being a mentor. Listen now and don’t forget to share with others in your network!
