How do I scale back on too many commitments and get clear on my direction?
“I’m in a negative spiral of over-commitment to underpaid and unpaid work. I feel stuck, undervalued and overstretched. And it’s not serving my best career interests. I feel guilty of letting people down if I say no.”
How can I end the procrastination so I can be more effective in my business?
“I have changed career direction and started a new business. It’s harder than I thought. I’m procrastinating and at risk of not getting anything done. How can I get unstuck?”
Can I do something else: am I good enough to….?
“I lost my job, and job opportunities are contracting in my industry. I don’t feel confident about being able to get another job. I want to be able to promote myself as a job seeker, but there aren’t too many roles I can apply for.”
What do I do? Should I stay or should I go?
“Am I in the wrong job, or even the wrong industry? I’ve felt stuck and unhappy for a long time now. It’s been awkward to ask anyone for help. I’ve been trying to sort it out myself, but I don’t know what to do about it. I can’t pinpoint the root cause of the problem, or what else might be a good fit. I don’t want to make the wrong choice and end up in the same situation elsewhere. But it’s really stressing me out and I want to know what to do next, so I can enjoy work again.“
Next career move: Which role do I choose?
“I need to plan my next career move, and I have 3 opportunities to choose from. Two are within my organisation, but different departments and one is external. I have to make a decision, but I’m not sure what to do next. I want some reassurance so I can be more confident in my choices.“
What do I do next? I don’t want to make the wrong-fit choice again
“I want to find direction so I can plan a career path for the next decade, but my last role was a really bad experience. It caused me a lot of stress and I felt stuck and unhappy. I don’t want to end up in the same situation by making the wrong-fit choice again. How can I be sure about what to do next?”
