Make 2023 Your Year of Gaining Career Clarity!
Maybe you’ve been swept up in recent job reductions/layoffs. Maybe you are thinking about or are ready for a job or career change. Maybe you are trying to level-up in your current organization. Or, maybe you are right where you want to be but need additional support to achieve the success you expected in your role.
Whatever your situation, clarity matters. A lot. This is an important time to get clear on the work you want to be doing and how you want to be doing it. And, if you are leader, it can be an important time to define the leader you want to be. Your ‘next’ is yours to own.
To help you gain some of that clarity, I am sharing several tools here that we use in our leadership coaching practice. You are welcome to download these tools for your use. These are:
1) the Leadership Point of View (POV) survey tool is always my starting point with clients, and will help you get clear on things like your purpose, vision, mission, and values
2) the Hurdles, Enablers & Accelerators tool will help you think and plan your next specific action(s) using these three distinct lenses
3) the Loves & Loathes Inventory will help you raise your awareness about the work you love doing, and that which you loathe
4) the Start-Stop-Continue tool will help you identify those behaviors and activities you need to start doing, stop doing and continue doing in support of your goals
My goal in sharing these tools is to help you to develop and to coach yourself. However, I also believe fully that we each need thought partners and accountability partners to help us grow. I encourage you to share the results of these tools with someone you trust, like a mentor or a coach.
