The skeleton of your platform was constructed a long time ago. It is made up of your skills, your experience and the knowledge that defines you. But are there missing planks? Knowing what you want to do, where are the holes that will hinder your ability to execute? To innovate? Figure out how to fill in the holes with new skills, new experiences, new knowledge. Do this now. Make it a priority.

A résumé is not a record of your jobs but a recipe of the platform you call your skills. A new job, or a new role inside a current company, is not merely a place to land. It is the next step of your evolution as a leader. Think about it this way as you make your decisions.

It turns out there’s a prerequisite for that prerequisite: If a business leader is going to transform his employees, he first needs to transform himself.

Nair, chief innovation officer at Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore., is a computer scientist with a résumé that includes positions at Intel, Mentor Graphics and a few other IT companies. He’s also the author of “Strategic Business Transformation: The 7 Deadly Sins to Overcome,” and he’s come up with eight great tips on how to bring about that self-transformation.
