Are you the type of person who says yes to every new project opportunity, or do you have a process for determining which to take on?
1.) It’s important to truly have the foundation with the leader asking you to take on a new project where you have the freedom to choose: to say no, if that is your path. Leaders: Ensure there is truly an opportunity for candor and transparency when you ask folks to stretch in their role.
2.) What value will the new project bring your organization and you? Will it help you grow and progress on your desired #career trajectory?
3.) Consider strongly what terms will be necessary if you do take it on: what hand will you have in setting up the process and parameters? Will you have any control, or does it require you to blindly accept? Do you have the needed latitude to help fine-tune the vision?
Sometimes, you are the best person to take on the project. Weigh it against your current purview and if it will appropriately elevate your brand before accepting.
