Have you taken the CareerDriver assessment?  If you enjoyed doing personality assessments like DISC or StrengthsFinder, you'll want to check this out.  This helps identify your abilities and helps bridge the skills gap:
  • CareerDriver®: An online career management tool that helps you assess your skills and match them to 46 job roles. Build a customized development plan with the help of more than 1,000 resources, including self-study courses, webinars, podcasts, publications, and on-the-job activities
My recommendation is to assess your skills for your current position and the role you desire.  Doing so can help you master your current role all-the-while taking the necessary steps to where you want to be.  The assessment takes about a half hour and you get a packet of info along with faciltating the next steps. 

There's additional free CPE available including webinars as well as other resources and networking opportunities.
