What does the future hold?
The idea of a single, long-lasting career is becoming a thing of the past (Deloitte):
A career represents our expertise, our profession, and ultimately our identity. It defines who we are and what we do. This form of self-identity makes changing careers dauntingly difficult.
What if we switch careers and fail?
Then who are we?
A career is something that builds over time and endures. It gives us the opportunity to progress, advance, and continuously feel proud. When we are asked to change our career or path, what happens to all we have learned?
Do we throw it all away?
Or can we carry it forward?
A career gives us financial and psychological rewards. It makes life meaningful, gives us purpose, and pays us enough to live well. What happens if our career suddenly becomes less valuable, even if we still enjoy it?
Should we continue to make less money or
jump to a new path?
I hear you!
Throughout my own career, I have aimed to be the hardest worker, caring colleague, teachable subordinate, inspiring coach, and visionary leader - and had a fair share of highs and lows.
Having worked in technology, nonprofit, and coached 10,000+ professionals, I have been a witness to and experienced all facets of the challenges in the workplace - fear, unconscious bias, prejudice, lack of recognition, incompetent management, imposter syndrome, unequal pay or career opportunities.
No matter what came my way, being consistent in my efforts to become a person of deep faith and confidence has helped me overcome struggle, conquer fear and achieve MY full potential.
