Just like athletes benefit from a knowledgeable and supportive coach, a career professional or executive can benefit from partnering with a coach that helps to clarify options and overcome limiting attitudes and behaviors to reach goals.
- doing work that you enjoy and find meaningful?
- working for a company whose mission and values align with your own?
- learning and growing in your career?
- making the most of the opportunities presented to you?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then perhaps your job is no longer an ideal fit for your talents and strengths, or perhaps it is time to rethink your values and goals. If your work has changed, have you changed along with it? Or are you still holding on to how things used to be?
Sure, you have to make a living and not everyone loves what they do. That’s a fact of life, no? Assuming money were not an issue, what work would you do? And what would be the benefit to you, your family and your employer if you did do work that you love? What needs to change for you to make that happen?
