How? Or When? Or if.
Decisions It's been a full 17 months since the March 2020 lockdown. In starts and stops, we're all moving through what we can and cannot control–grappling with decisions about how and when or if “going back” makes sense. It's a lot to navigate. Workplace Fact: According to the U.S. Labor Department, a record 4 million people quit their jobs in April, 2021. A recent survey by the Pew Foundation showed that while 65% of employees were happy in their roles, up to 80% said they would consider another opportunity. We're in a workplace reset that will keep morphing in the months to come. In addition to career, many of my clients (including me) are part of determining the next steps for a group, family, organization or team. More decisions. How are you making these choices?
Here's tip to... Take the pressure off Any decision is really your ‘best guess’ after gathering reliable, factual information from outside sources and checking in with your gut–your internal facts. It often means letting go of old habits and facing a new set of possibilities. So how about slowing down? Take the time to inquire, ask the right questions, listen, experiment, notice, and learn. Instead of aiming for ‘perfect’ remember there is no such thing. When you don’t have empirical answers, decision-making rests on your willingness to be curious. One of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of being a coach is entering into this kind of exploration with clients. No matter your goal (could be a decision), we investigate your mindset, possibilities, and the actions that will keep you moving toward what you truly want and need. We are adventurers in the unknown, with you as the expert on YOU; and me, grounded in my knowledge, skill and expertise, ready to travel wherever your path leads. The best part is that we get to do it together.
