Master complementary skills


  1. Identify your current skillset.
    Begin by making a list of the skills you currently possess. Reflect on your strengths and areas where you excel, considering both your professional and personal abilities. Ask yourself: What skills do I use most often in my current role? Which skills have others complimented me on? Write them down.
  2. Understand the common skills in your industry.
    Research the most valued skills in your industry. You can do this by reading job postings, industry publications, or even speaking with colleagues. The goal is to identify which skills are most frequently sought after and considered valuable. Write them down.
  3. *Spot opportunities for unique skill combinations.
    With an understanding of common industry skills, identify gaps where you could differentiate yourself. Consider skills outside the typical scope of your industry that could complement the common ones. This is how you will make yourself stand out.
  4. Plan to acquire new skills.
    Choose new skills to learn based on the gaps you've identified. Make a plan for how you will acquire these skills. Is it through formal education, online courses, self-study, or practice? Set clear goals and timelines for your learning journey.
  5. Practice deliberately.
    Engage in focused, deliberate practice of your new skills. Set aside specific times each day or week for practice and stick to your schedule.
  6. Apply your skills in real-world scenarios.
    Look for opportunities to apply your new skills in your job, in volunteer positions, or in personal projects. This will help deepen your understanding and proficiency in that skill.
