Career Shift

by Hulya Kurt (Switzerland)

Lots of professionals in their midst of their career are not satisfied anymore.

I know, as I did a survey over LinkedIn and conducted interviews, to understand better the struggles that business people have.

And we spend more time at work than at home. Even if you do home office, at the end it is time you spend for a company where you don’t feel recognized, your manager might be toxic, you can’t express yourself or you don’t get the promotion you are looking for.

If you happen to be in that bucket now, it is time to think about a change.

But first you need to know what you want exactly:

  • Stay in the same organisation and find ways to move on, either horizontally or vertically?
  • Stay in the same organisation, don’t do anything, and continue as is?
  • Change company, but stay in the same industry?
  • Change company AND industry?
  • Become independent and self-employed?

To answer these questions are difficult yet so important to analyse what is truly important to you.

Like one of our Master Coaches, Di McLanachan, always mentions: If you are in doubt, get your values out.

What are values?

A quick description:

They are the core of your soul, your mind, your north pole. Your GPS and if they are violated, you will get frustrated, not happy. Your non-negotiable.

In the context of your career, what is important for you? To give you some thoughts:

Flexibility / Loyalty / Creativity / Team collaboration / Belonging etc.
