Happen To Your Career

Many people tend to make the mistake that “signature strengths'' means the same thing as strengths. They may look similar but their definitions - not so much.

What if I told you that getting hired for your strengths may still lead to career unhappiness and feeling stuck, like you’re back at square one? It’s true. Sociologists have presented hard science behind the concept that what really leads to career happiness is getting hired for your signature strengths.

In this HTYC episode, Scott Anthony Barlow dives into the concept of signature strengths and why it’s less obvious and much harder to identify when compared to “strengths” due to the emotion component. We’ll also explore why it’s so much more useful to utilize signature strengths when doing a career change and finding an ideal role that fits you.

If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you know one of my most common pieces of career change advice is to figure out what you WANT out of your career. But, for most of us, figuring out what we want can be difficult. We spend so much of our professional lives doing what we NEED to do, that we often lose sight of what we WANT to do. Or, we assume that if we enjoy something too much, it must not be possible to do it for a living. (Not true!) Learn how Chris combined his love of cars and hobby of helping people search for vehicles into a new career path.

Everyone has a network. And here’s a secret… Almost everyone thinks their network isn’t big or strong enough to help them land their ideal role. Not true! Studies have shown that it’s not the people closest to us who are the really powerful part of our network,it’s the “weak ties” (the friends of friends) who truly matter for making things happen. Surprised? Confused? On this week’s podcast, Scott chats with Tanya Malcolm Revell who used the friends of friends in her network to land her ideal role.

What You’ll Learn 

  • Why your network should be tapped into to unlock your ideal role.
  • How to identify your weak ties and discover the power of those acquaintances  
  • How to maximize your network to get your ideal role.
