Happen To Your Career

Ever notice how everything people want in life comes from doing difficult things (that very few people are willing to do)? This is often because you can’t tangibly see an impact right away.

From growing up on a small Oklahoma farm to leading the Walt Disney Paris expansion and the Executive Vice President of Operations for the Walt Disney World Resorts, Lee Cockerell has navigated through one challenging situation after another (after another).  

Lee suggests that giving visibility to the toughest problems in all areas of your life and dealing with those problems daily until they are resolved is a far more successful way to approach challenges in life or work.

What if you could get access to career opportunities simply by using words? Or stand out against the millions of people on Linkedin so that companies contact you (instead of trying to chase job postings)? 

It’s more than just possible, it’s a realistically learnable skill for anyone who is willing to put in the effort. Once you learn this skill you can have a competitive advantage for the rest of your life (and career).

Danny Rubin teaches distinct and unique writing to open doors to your ideal company.

You’ve been ignoring that feeling in your gut for months, even years. Maybe it’s been about your job, or how you’re raising your kids or even the fact that you think you might be settling in your relationships. Whatever it is now it’s time to learn to start paying attention to it.

Why? 

Because science and research tell us that your intuition is great at letting you know when things are off. What it’s not great at is helping you understand why it’s off or leading you to the exact right answer. 

Alissa Penney decided to stop ignoring those feelings just 18 months ago. Since then there has been no looking back as she has completely changed her career (and even started her own consulting business).

One of the big things that we talk and teach about is strengths. Specifically, we help people identify their Signature Strengths.

There are a lot of people that seem to minimize the importance of identifying and understanding their strengths, but it really is one of the most important pieces to find or create your ideal career.

Today, we’re sharing a conversation with Kirby Verceles.

Kirby has been through several career transitions, but it made a huge difference in her life and in her career once she identified her Signature Strengths. The work she does now is meaningful and fits her strengths.

On Monday, I shared our podcast episode about how career change really works and showed you .

And I mentioned a 13-step process to make a successful career change.

Today, we get into what is the step-by-step process.

Now, I say process a little bit liberally, because, in reality, this is a very squiggly line type event.

It's forwards and backwards, and up and down, and all over in order to get to work that matters to you - work that's much more meaningful, more fulfilling, just better for you - all the way around work that fits.

At the same time, still, there are pieces that everyone goes through to be able to get there. It rarely happens by accident.

So, I want you to know what the exact steps are that we use with every single person behind the scenes, but also that people that we're not even helping go through as well.

Here are the 13 steps to a successful career change:

  1. What’s your goal?
  2. Assess strengths, experience, and assets
  3. Assess what you’d like to keep (address issue of not having to start over)
  4. Assess what’s missing in your career
  5. Create Ideal Career Profile
  6. Design a Career Test Drive to prove that’s the right direction for you
  7. Develop a job search plan (terrible name - need to come up with something better)
  8. Develop target list of Companies/Roles or both
  9. Begin your search/build relationships (networking! yay!)
  10. Interview like a badass
  11. Negotiate your offers
  12. Accept your offer and happy dance
  13. Scrap all your training and join the dark side

I go into detail on each of these steps on the podcast episode today.

What if your goal isn’t just to make a career change? What if you want to spend your 8-10 hours a day doing something meaningful and that you can get excited about? Oh and BTW, I’d like it to pay me well (and allow me to contribute by helping people in the way I want to)... Is this too much to ask? 

In a world where this is not normal, I can understand how it seems impossible. But it’s far from “too much to ask.” 

This type of career change does however require a drastically different approach.

One of the biggest reasons that finding this type of work is so hard is because there’s not a clear path to making this type of change. At least until now....

This is the first of a 2-episode series to show you how people actually make these types of career changes (That episode releases today) and we break down this “unicorn” into 13 Steps to Career Change to Meaningful work (and reinventing your career).
