Free 2024 Career Planning Toolkit by Kaleida

2023 was quite the ride, wasn't it? It was a year with major, groundbreaking geopolitical events. We witnessed AI technology making huge strides and becoming an increasing part of our everyday lives. It was also a challenging year for the global economy, with layoffs continuing throughout many industries. Inflation and the rising cost of living continue to be on everyone’s minds.

But 2024 is an opportunity for a fresh start. This might be the year you’re aiming for a promotion into a senior role. Or you may be new to your role and are thinking of deepening your expertise and levelling up your skills. Whatever the case may be, let's start this year with a sense of purposeful reflection and strategy. 

To help this task, Kaleida is offering a set of free downloadable worksheets. This is your structured toolkit to envision, plan and achieve your 2024 career goals.

Why plan your career?

Planning is the first important step in laying the groundwork for career success. As the author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry famously said, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” Use these worksheets to gain clarity, focus your efforts, and maintain momentum throughout the year.
