If something in your work’s not working for you, listen up.
It may have nothing to do with your work.
Yes, your actual day-to-day work—the stuff you get done using your superpowers, strengths and skills—might be the perfect work for you. You may be in a great company and work with great people.
In fact, I hope you do!
But if something’s not quite right for you at work—and you’re having trouble putting your finger on it— it’s a good bet there’s something missing on your way to job success.
In my course “Should You Stay or Go? Make the Best Career Decision,” I teach a process to help you get clear about what you really want, so you can use that as a guide going forward.
In other words, I help you put the pieces together.
And the one piece that always surprises and shocks people is to find that the missing piece is all about their work environment.
We rarely get really career clear on the elements that define the environment we want to work in.
We spend time setting our goals, understanding our skills, and learning how to improve our visibility and impact, but we don’t often stop and think about all of the elements that contribute to our happiness and productivity at work.
