Many of the people that we have worked with here at HTYC tend to go through several career changes on their own. They try many of the traditional job search methods, and they don’t see lasting results. Usually, they start excited about their new role, but then, at some point, start realizing that something is off. Sometimes the role or company doesn’t match your values. Sometimes the role doesn’t match your strengths.

Laura Parker used to work for a global law firm for 12 years, and made a change to this technology company 2 years ago. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she needed to make another change, and that’s where she found this podcast. But I’m getting ahead of her story. We need to jump back and see why she needed to leave the law firm in the first place?

How can you remove distraction?

Distraction from achieving what’s most important to you?

Distraction that takes you away from who you want to be spending your time with?

Who better to answer this question than the person who wrote "Indistractable: How to control your attention and choose your life." I read it and loved it so much that I bought it for my entire team for Christmas. 

Here to teach us the difference between traction and distraction is author Nir Eyal.

As humans, we have a tendency to compare ourselves to one another. This doesn’t make us feel too great most of the time, but especially when it comes to measuring success. My measure or definition of success may not be the same as yours. And that is completely okay! That’s because success looks different for everyone. When you worry about other people’s opinions (even if it’s family or friends), it can negatively impact your potential success. On today’s episode, Celena Singh shares how she broke out of the restraints of other’s expectations and found happiness and satisfaction in her successes. 

What you’ll learn 

  • Why you need to figure out your own definition of success 
  • How outside opinions negatively impact your success
  • What you need to do to get out of your own way
  • How to stand up for yourself and find happiness where you are

Are the expectations of others holding you back from doing work that is truly fulfilling? Most of us feel like we have to behave like one person when we’re at work, and a different person when we’re at home or in our social circles. That in itself creates a social expectation. If you want to be yourself at all times, you’re bucking the trend. Because, in our world today it’s  not “normal” to get paid to be who you are, using your true strengths instead of just the skills you’ve picked up in various roles along the way. But, you want to know the weirdest part? By resisting being your most authentic self at all times (because of fear) we are ensuring that we stay unhappy by default. Learn how to go against the grain and find a career that allows you to be YOU! 

What You'll Learn

  • How to model living authentically during a career change to find a career that fits 
  • How to modify your job offer to reflect what you really want
  • How your boss can support you during your career change 
  • The importance of finding your strengths to determine your ideal role

Years ago, I wanted to learn more about how some people became what I now call Happy High Achievers  – people who were successful in both their career and also in the other areas of life. Fast forward to when we started HTYC, we had the goal to help many more people in the world become Happy High Achievers, not just to get to meaningful work. So what do you think stops people from making career changes to much more fulfilling work? What stops people from becoming Happy High Achievers? Cindy Gonos, Director of Client Success at HTYC joins me to discuss the five biggest beliefs that stop you from ever taking the first step and asking for career help.

What You’ll Learn 

  • Why you don’t don’t need to run away from a career change and how to ask for help 
  • How “powering through” isn’t always the answer & why you don’t have to sacrifice anything to enjoy your career
  • Why the lifestyle you’ve grown accustomed to might hold you back from fulfilling work

Changing careers is hard. Waiting for the right role can be even harder. It’s often easier to just settle for a “good enough” role – especially when the process seems to be taking too long. While a good job isn’t necessarily a bad thing, what if you end up missing your ideal opportunity that could lead to lasting career happiness? It took Eric an entire year to find the right role. Along the way, he had to ask himself some hard questions and learn how and when to say “no” to “good” opportunities.

What you will learn:     

  • How having patience and trusting the process can lead you to your ideal role
  • The benefits of saying “no” and how to know when the role isn’t right for you
  • How Eric used networking and persistence to make his career change

There’s personal career growth (when you live your definition of success) and then there’s career growth according to society’s definition of success. Maybe you’ve been promoted over the years all the way to senior manager, yet you still feel stuck, bored, and drained. Society will tell you this is what success is! We disagree. Growing in your career is figuring out what you’re good at and what energizes you, and pivoting into a meaningful, fulfilling career that uses your strengths. Learn how James Sannan came to the realization that there could be more to his career than the short phase of excitement he felt after each promotion, and how he networked his way into a meaningful career that he truly enjoys. 

What you’ll learn

  • The importance of having a growth mindset in order to positively impact and advance your career
  • How persistence and networking can help you get into the company you want to work for
  • The steps to take in order to make a change when you feel stuck in your career

You’ve been ignoring that feeling in your gut for a while. Maybe it’s been about your job, or how you’re raising your kids, or even concerned about your relationships. But it’s time to start paying attention to it.

Why? 

Your intuition is great at letting you know when things are off. But it’s not great at helping you understand why it’s off. 

When Alissa Penney decided to stop ignoring those feelings, she was able to completely change her career (and even start her own consulting business).

Many high performers work hard to climb the corporate ladder. Reaching an executive level is a crowning achievement. Or is it?

Dan Ruley had worked his way up to become the Director of Sales, but (another) conflict arose between family and work, leading to him losing his job.
