Stuck in your career?

When was the last time you were facing a crossroads in your career? Probably not that long ago. You may be facing one right now. You’re at a point where you have some decisions to make about the course your career will take.

 Are you in a dead-end job? Have you found yourself with seemingly nowhere to move in the company?  Did someone else get the promotion you had hoped for?  Do you work in a toxic environment? Do you have a ‘terrible’ boss?

Whichever situation you’re in, it can be stressful, frustrating, and suck the energy out of you until you work through it.

Being at a crossroads can feel like you’re at a busy intersection trying to figure out what to do…You’re at a point where you’ve got to make a turn. The decisions and timing of your decisions can be critical to whether you get through this successfully. A GPS would be helpful about now.

Like some of the professionals who reach out to me in my coaching practice, you may be at your wits end. You feel stuck and are not sure how to change your situation. You may be afraid of making a wrong decision. You may risk burning bridges because your emotions get in the way.  You may believe that “it will all work out” or that your boss or HR will be ‘looking out for you.’

You’re getting a lot of different advice from all the people you reach out to. So, whose advice is right? Now, you find yourself with even more possible paths at your crossroads than you came into this with. It can be even more confusing.

Want to stop pulling your hair out, or shutting down and deciding not to do anything?

Work the Problem

I am really happy to announce the launch of the new book published by the Association for Talent Development, “Work the Problem: How Experts Tackle Workplace Challenges“.

I am a contributing author to the book, my second for ATD, providing expert strategies and advice for leaders and individual contributors.

In the book, I talk about Career Crossroads. There is a case study and I give strategies for when you encounter this situation.
