Bored, burnt out and successful !!!
Meet our three professionals – a 40 Year Business Head, IT Professional, and a lawyer. They’re seemingly successful, earn good money and are respected in their fields. However, they all have a common problem:
- They cannot envision themselves in their current role five years from now.
- They enjoy recognition and respect for their exceptional work in their field.
- As time has passed, their career satisfaction has dwindled, leaving them yearning for more.
- With over 15 years of experience, they are skilled and knowledgeable in their careers.
- They are all in their 40’s and in their careers for at least 15-20 years.
- They are ready for change.
Do you find yourself in a similar situation? Feeling ready to change can be triggered by a life-changing event, or perhaps you’re contemplating a significant shift. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some steps to help you shape your career journey:
Consider what you like and don’t like: take a moment to do some soul-searching. Consider which aspects of your current job bring you joy and fulfillment and which make you unhappy. Interacting with people and building relationships may be something you value, while client dinners may cause stress.
Have “curiosity conversations”: have meaningful conversations with different people about their work and what makes them happy. Networking and gaining insights from others can open up new opportunities.
Take the Strong Interest Inventory: This online test can help you match your personality traits with appropriate careers. Discover possible career paths that match your interests and strengths.
Determine your priorities: Ask yourself the top three things that are most important for your next position. Whether it’s more stimulation, financial growth, fun, autonomy or a shorter commute, being clear about your priorities will help you make better decisions.
Create a process plan: Develop a step-by-step plan to explore different career options. Seek guidance from mentors or career counselors to ensure your plan is well thought out.
Build a support system: It’s easier to embrace change when you have a support system in place. Get support from friends, family or career counseling groups. Remember that you don’t have to go through this alone.
Remember that career change is a process that requires determination, support and clear goals. It’s never too late to become the person you aspire to be. Your dream career is within reach – take the first step toward a more fulfilling and satisfying future today!
