Productivity and The Career CatWalk

. . There she is. . . serious, investigative and calm. . . ladies and gentleman we present you the first model, starting in alphabetical order - the accountant.

This career catwalk is different than the traditional catwalk. You will not find an overview of the latest fashion but rather a series of careers and - this is very important - what it is that makes these career so special.

We all have to chose a career or we catch-up with one without having really determined one in advance. For example the business manager hardly starts as a career. First you are either an engineer, a lawyer an information technology professional, an architect a entrepreneur, teacher or coach or perhaps a surgeon who will run a hospital after having been in active duty for many years and looking for a change.

As a business manager you execute different roles in different moment. Sometimes you operate as a coach supporting a team, and than you are like an architect designing a new organization, or a lawyer in the role of the devils’ advocate and the next moment you are in front of a group of pupils. . .

But at the end of the day you want to know whether you have been productive. Therefore it is important to understand the different elements that contribute to personal productivity. To evaluate the productivity of a professor or teacher you need quite some different indicator than the programmer, the architect or the surgeon.

An important step in measuring productivity is to understand the (four) main productivity roles that you need in business.

All the professionals on the career catwalk share only four main productivity roles. But each with a different profile and balance (and of course on a complete different subject). Understanding your preferred productivity role will help you manage and increase your personal productivity.

If you are interested in knowing more about these roles you will find more at the following link: What_is_my_productivity_profile?
