The holiday season is upon us and, with it, the end of 2014. The internet retailers and big box stores are pitching you to buy, buy, buy. And the last thing you want to be is a grumpy Scrooge.
But save some time to look back on this year. Are you satisfied with your present career? A recent study noted that 80 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with some aspect of their current job. Some issues which are frequently mentioned include:
- Work-life balance
- The organization’s culture is toxic
- Stress and burnout
- Lack of recognition
- Disagreement with one’s boss or fellow workers
Do one or more of these leave a sour taste in your mouth?
January is a time for resolutions. But December may be just the right time to weigh what’s right and what’s wrong with your current work situation. You can’t resolve to change a situation without a thorough assessment of what this past year has brought you.
You may be too close to your present job to look at it objectively. This is where a life and career coach can help. This month I am offering a career check-up which is well within the means of your holiday budget. Let’s sit down over some coffee or tea for an hour and a half and examine what is working for you and what’s “not so much.”
