Your post pandemic career strategy is different than originally designed. What will you do?
Are you feeling guilty? And are you attempting to comply with what satisfied you before?
Rather, let’s celebrate together! It is time to move forward beyond where you were yesterday and where you are today. Time to get to where you really need to go tomorrow. One millimeter at a time. Together.
Your post pandemic career strategy reflects a change in priorities.
Not only are professional and personal priorities altered, courtesy of our pandemic experiences. Some of you lost loved ones. First and foremost, please accept my deepest condolences for your profound losses.
Consequently, your daily habits reorganized. How did you use new priorities to recalibrate, retool, and renovate your professional selves? As a result, you realize it always was time for a change.
Your post pandemic career strategy is up to you. And you’ve got this. We’ve got this. Together. Here are some suggested next steps.
First, determine whether your current employer is willing or able to honor your post pandemic career strategy. Do you require a catalyst to help you choreograph what is next? If so, click here and contact me to schedule a 90-minute strategy session.
Next, consider whether your current employer’s business model is flexible enough to honor the trajectory of your talent. Or does your evolving strategic direction make you better suited for another employer? Are you ready to move that one millimeter forward and place a bet on yourself? If you do not believe in yourself, neither will anyone else. 😉
Also, do not feel “selfish” making your strategy known to your employer. Consider that your current employer may be evaluating their own post pandemic strategy, as well. Why not work together towards each other’s success?
Then, get real with yourself. Have you evolved professionally and personally? Evaluate your reasons for being interested in a different professional area of pursuit. Utilize Voice of the Customer methodology as the format for what is new and next and waiting for you. Unfamiliar with how to utilize that methodology for your career? Click here and contact me to schedule a 90-minute strategy session.
Do any of these scenarios describe where you are at, right now? Then get out of your own way and stop holding yourself back from moving one millimeter forward. Colleagues and clients are waiting for you to get them to where they really need to go, together. One millimeter at a time. And there is no better time than right now.
