Have you heard of the three Cs of career growth? They are the three things you need to focus on in your career if you want to move up the ladder at work and find long-term professional success.

As a career coach for the last 20 years, I've learned that people cannot move their careers forward in a vacuum. You can't grow your career alone. And that's where the three Cs come in...

The 3 Cs Of Career Growth

The first "C" of career growth is courses/content. You need resources in your career that will teach you something new and give you a new perspective.

The second "C" is coaching. In order to truly grow your career, you need a trained expert or a mentor, somebody who can help you interpret what you're learning, especially if you hit roadblocks. A career coach, for example, can tailor their answers to support you and your needs, providing you with the right advice that will help you succeed.

The third "C" of career growth, and the most important, is community. You have to surround yourself with like-minded individuals who are working on the same problem or chasing the same goal. This not only motivates you, but it gives you more information and perspective in order to speed up the success of your learning.

“Do you really want to work in a contact center?”

Let’s be honest: five-year-olds don’t dream about working in a contact center when they grow up. Proud parents never boast about their children working in contact centers. Teachers at private schools never recommend students to work in contact centers.

The Data Science ROI Of Moving To The Data Lakehouse

Many CDOs/CDAOs (and even CMOs) have raised some interesting questions about these three data management and data science titans: Snowflake, Databricks, and DataRobot. Some of the questions include:

  • Can Snowflake replace the CDP?
  • Do I need Databricks if I have ML Ops capabilities or other capabilities that are similar?
  • What is the difference between DataRobot and Databricks?
  • How do we prevent the siloing of marketing data and smooth access by other domains?
