Your team to help you on the path to your next role

I like this idea of putting a team together to help yourself on the path to the new role.

Achieving Your Potential

I really like the idea of having your own team to help you as you try new things. Pamela Mitchell’s book “The 10 Laws of Career Reinvention suggests friends like these would be a great team:
The master connector is a networking expert – someone with great connections who can put you in touch with others who may be able to help you.

The clued-in colleague is someone you’ve worked with, who knows your strengths and weaknesses and can discern whether an opportunity is a good match for you and your skills.

Warm ‘n’ fuzzy is a good friend who will catch you if you fall and can make you feel grounded in moments of despair.

Client’s Feedback

So many years have gone by not really in vain but not effectively.

Дмитрий, начальник отдела продаж

Are you making up stories about what is going on?

Achieving Your Potential

This article from @BreneBrown is a thought provoking on highlighting how much of the time we can be ‘making up stories’ about what is going on.  This rarely helps us – but it is hard to resist hardwiring within most of us to tell a story.  Shall I give a few examples:

  • that presentation went terribly.  I always make terrible presentations
  • my boss didn’t smile at me this morning.  They are really angry at me
  • I messed up that spreadsheet.  I’m never going to make it

Brene’s advice (which works for me) is to slow down and pause.  Get really interested in what is going on.  Ask yourself:   What are you thinking and feeling?  Why? What other explanations are there?
