NEW YEAR, OLD YOU?
Now that the break is over, are you finding your ‘demons’ from last year are still haunting you in the new year. By demons, I mean not feeling good enough, not feeling successful enough, being easily riled up by familiar annoying stakeholders, feeling unfulfilled at work, and lacking in self-belief & confidence to achieve the change you would like.
DO YOU NEED A NEW DEFINITION OF SUCCESS?
I do a lot of work with clients on reviewing past definitions of success (to be successful I must achieve X) that they may have been hanging onto from earlier in their career.
When we project forward to examine what success looks like for them in the future, what they tell me is normally very different to how they have been currently assessing themselves. It’s possible you may have the wrong definition of success in your mind (potentially linked to others’ expectations or past goals) and this is causing you to feel unhappy at work despite thinking you are doing all that you can to achieve. I’m working so hard here, why don’t I feel good about it . . .
YOUR OWN CAREER COACH
A career coach works in the following four areas:
INTERNAL DOWNLOAD (the problem)
1. What is going on for me right now at work?
How would I rate my confidence & self-belief?
Where does self-doubt & fear get in the way?
What are the perceived obstacles to driving change?
FUTURE MAPPING (what’s possible)
2. What do I believe is possible for me?
What are my strengths & unique talents?
What am I truly interested in / passionate about NOW?
What values do I need met at work, in what type of environment?
GOAL SETTING & ACTION PLAN (what I want)
3. What is my medium-term career goal?
What are my options for action and change?
Which actions are practical for me to implement?
What resources will I need, who can help me get what I want?
ARTICULATING MY VALUE (how to get it)
4. What are my transferable skills?
Where do my skills and passion align with industries/organisations?
What is my career story / elevator pitch?
How do I position myself via CV and networking to get what I want?
How do I build confidence & let go of fear?
