Are you facing unfamiliar territory or navigating a major transition?
It’s a cliché reminder that “the only constant we can expect in life is change.” But that doesn’t make it any easier for most human beings to navigate complex changes each time they occur. Personal and career changes typically intertwine on many levels, impacting our “whole self,” those around us, and, often, our ability to cope. If we are not intentional we tend toward our default thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Getting on top of things means mastering our own ability to find serenity and quiet in the midst of raging storms.
Personal “Life” Transition
Sometimes you have to rewrite your life story due to circumstances or developmental changes: empty nesters; professional athletes exiting their sport; people who are retiring or changing their profession; changes in marital, health or financial status, to name a few.
But there doesn’t have to be a “cause” or trigger that drives the need for a life transition. Transition can instead be focused on developing a solid sense of who you are, what you want out of life, and how to get there.
While some career transitions are planned, many are not, and those can come with a healthy dose of fear, uncertainty and self-doubt. Though the use of customized personal assessments, I help people at all stages of their career to identify or reestablish their sense of career purpose, highlight areas of strength, opportunities for self-mastery and how to overcome career obstacles.
