06 Sep Thinking About A Career Move?
There is a lot of talk about “quiet quitting” these days. To be perfectly honest, I’m not a fan of the term. It’s neither accurate nor particularly inspiring. It speaks to employee disengagement, disappointment and coping with unfair or unrealistic expectations. Let’s refocus and reframe what many employees want and can do with their careers.
As a person dedicated to being in the “people investment business”, I’ve spent many years working with individuals who have experienced career transition due to job loss or a desire for more/better in their work life.
Six years ago, I too, decided to initiate a significant career change as my first book was about to be published. I left behind a stable job at a large company after 10 years, and decided to take the risk of stepping out on my own.
The crazy thing is, I didn’t have everything mapped out perfectly or a pristine business plan, but I knew that I had to tap into my what Hendrick’s calls, “zone of genius” to use my talents to create value for others and find greater professional fulfillment and vibrancy.
When I work with people who are thinking about career shifts or change, there are some common questions I ask as we try to discover what’s next for them. If you are thinking about what’s next for your own career or coaching someone that you are working with, this infographic is just for you!
PRO TIP: As you review the questions below, do you have answers to them and are you comfortable with the answers?
