📼Principles for your professional development. Tip #1: strong work ethics. Treat people exactly as you like to be treated. Adopt a positive attitude. Cultivate relationships with positive coworkers. Collaboration and teamwork should be on top of your mind. "We" should be used instead of "you" or "them". Be consistent with what you say and do and make sure you follow good examples.
📼Professional development is beyond your comfort zone. Tip #2: embrace uncertainty. Whenever possible, take risks and say hello to challenges. Try not to stick to something you've mastered. Keep an open mind to other types of practices but don't expect to be challenge-less. Talk with your manager and be aware of new opportunities. If you make mistakes, keep calm, fix them, continue, and don't forget to learn from them. To be ready for any challenge you must truly believe in your abilities.
Professional Development Is a Work in Progress - Tip #3: Keep Developing
Start to identify the most requested technologies based on your goals. Study hard and read a lot. Invest in training and certifications. Surround yourself with the right people, build strong relationships and, if possible, find a mentor. Don't hesitate to ask for help. Never forget to share your knowledge with others. Adopt a continuous learning approach and try to apply the new skills as soon as possible.
