Happen To Your Career

Are you exhausted and burnt out from your current job that you can ‘t even think about what it is going to take to start changing careers?

It’s time to recalibrate your mindset to make that career change to something you enjoy (finally!).

Two keywords: Space and Margin.

In today’s episode, Lisa Lewis, drops in to share why it’s important to create time and space for you to visualize and design your next career.

From there, you will be able to layout what you have in front of you to begin making those marginal decisions to get you to your next career. Don’t overthink…small steps is the goal.

Listen in as Lisa also discusses some of the realistic, potential positive and negative outcomes if you decide to invite your current employer to discuss your thoughts of changing careers.

Here’s what you’re going to learn about career change:

  • How to get clear on what you have in front of you (financially) to build a road map to get to your next career move
  • Why taking the time to figure out what you want by creating a vision will add to your inspiration to keep you from burning out through your career change process
  • How setting strong boundaries with your current work situation is just as important in the transition process to your next career to help you get re-energized and keep you from burn-out in order to take those baby-steps in exploring your possibilities
  • How to propose your career change to your current employer

Figuring out what you really want in your career and in life is one of the most important keys to happiness and fulfillment.

It’s so important that it’s one of the first things that we address as we work with our clients.

The problem, though, is that many people haven’t actually identified what they really want.

Almost everyone knows what they don’t want, but that doesn’t lead to happiness.

Today, you’ll hear:

  • How to find what you love to do again (if you’ve strayed away from it)
  • Why you need to identify true strengths and values that lead to your ideal role
  • How you can prepare yourself to finally make the jump to your next career move
  • What kind of jobs/positions/roles a project manager can move into

Scott addresses all of these today as we share a training we did a couple weeks ago.

Some people can just keep going forever in a job that they no longer find meaningful, but for many people there’s an expiration date when it’s painful to keep going to work, sitting at your desk and knowing that you’re just not that excited about it. But how do you know if you should simply quit your job? Will that be the right move. Aside from the financial aspect, there are many other reasons that this could be the best (or worst decision) of your life. 

In this episode with Mike Goodman, we evaluate his journey to decide whether quitting (without a new job yet) was right for him. More importantly, you’ll learn 4 questions to ask yourself to know if it makes sense for you to quit (without having another opportunity)

As high performers contemplate making a career change, one of their concerns is with their salary. They believe that if they were to switch careers to something that they actually enjoy that they have to take a pay cut. In reality, what we have seen with the people we work with is that is almost never the case. In fact, there are many times when they get an increase in their salary.

Today, we’re sharing a training we did talking about this very subject:
