The same plaintive question from the back seat that hounds every parent on holiday is also on the minds of today’s executives: Are we there yet?
What is success, how do you know when you’re there, and what changes when you arrive? The truth is, you may not recognize it when you do arrive. Getting caught up in the daily work routine, constantly striving to learn more, do more, be more, all that work can make it hard to slow down long enough to recognize your goal or the path to reach it.
A career coach can help you identify what your goals are, and where you are in your journey in relation to where you want to be. They can help you decide how to prioritize, what work/life balance looks like to you, what position gives you the success you’re looking for both at work and at home, and how to prepare your resume and personal brand to get there.
Is it time for a course correction on your journey? Are you experiencing the success you’ve dreamed about? Once you have identified what success means to you and how to get there, that’s when you know your ETA. Then you can be sure you’ll know when you have arrived!
