If your job’s going great, but you’re feeling empty, stuck or bored, and at a crossroads in your career, you might be thinking, “What the heck is going on?”
Well, there’s good news and there’s bad news.
The bad news is, you’re probably going through a career midlife crisis.
Someone once said to me, "If you're not happy with your job, you're not happy with your life." As a coach who works with hundreds of executives facing unhappiness at work, this is a fact.
The mid-career crisis often hits when you’ve been working for 10 years or so, and start to wonder if there’s more to life than what you do at work everyday.
You don’t exactly hate your job, but you’ve had enough of the long hours, the toxic politics, and the looming worry about retrenchment. And you just want to know what options you have that could be more meaningful before it’s “too late”.
It feels like there isn't any information out there and it’s just a big blurry smog of uncertainty, or superficial “rah rah” advice. Not to mention the worry about the possible risk you’re taking.
The good news is, there IS light at the end of the tunnel.
Whether you’re confused, afraid, or excited about this stage in your career, you can get greater clarity and find a way forward.
What you need are tools and clear, actionable strategies to focus your thoughts, manage your emotions, and expand your way of seeing yourself.
Then, follow a step-by-step, design-thinking system to create options, test and iterate them, as you work toward your ideal life and career.
The even better news is, you’re not alone.
With decades of radical career changes under my belt, and having worked with hundreds of senior executives on career transitions, personal branding and leadership, I’m here as your companion to navigate past the crossroads, and through your mid-career transition journey.
