“Warriors take chances. Like everyone else, they fear failing, but they refuse to let fear control them.”ancient Samurai saying

It’s not in vogue anymore to do a job that doesn’t satisfy you only because it pays well.

The new trend is to do what you love and be handsomely paid for it. If you are stuck in a job that is not a good fit you lose something very important and it’s not only your time, it’s your energy that is being drained by tasks, people, targets, meetings that you simply don’t want to be a part of anymore.

You may not feel under great pressure to make a career change as a senior executive, having advanced up the corporate ladder, with a great amount of responsibility to match. But with skills, experience and leadership ability at your disposal, are you maximizing your potential? And is your current role where you see yourself until you retire? Maybe You have outgrown your current role and environment and you need a FRESH CHALLENGE?

Most executives want and need to grow professionally. Executive career success empowers you to maximize your leadership potential and make a bigger impact at work and in life. Unless you commit to this growth or invest in executive career coaching, you will become stagnant and never reach your long-term goals. If you stay in an unfulfilling executive role you become a stagnant pond while you need to be a flowing river of success!

Begin your search by evaluating your career. Where are you now? Where would you like to go next? Where do you want to be in 3-5 years? Identify your current skills and leadership qualities, focusing particularly on areas that differentiate you from your competition.

List your accomplishments and determine what skills you used to achieve them. How do your skills and accomplishments uniquely qualify you for the role you want? Teaming up with an executive career coach makes this process smoother. Career change is very challenging and having a professional by your side who knows this process inside out is a huge asset and help.

Make A Move. Take whatever steps are necessary to experience greater levels of success and satisfaction.

  • Perfect your CV/Resume and online profiles. Highlight your strengths with numbers so you can gain a competitive edge and quickly demonstrate your core achievements.
  • Understand the expectations in today’s evolving marketplace. Retrain and reeducate yourself to match specific executive job requirements.
  • Know your executive career path inside out. Be able to discuss every stage of your career progression clearly and confidently.
  • Always be networking. Aim to achieve at least one outcome from every networking meeting, whether you share knowledge or arrange to meet again to follow up on an idea.

The opportunities are waiting to be harvested. Don’t wait any longer. Make your decision! Align with your purpose.
