Have you ever wanted to renovate your space?
Have you ever had a feeling that something needs to change?
Have you ever stepped into a space and it no longer feels right? Like it isn’t you anymore?
Career renovation is much like any other renovation you might undertake. It starts with a feeling that something isn’t quite right. It started as an inkling, but now it’s something you can no longer ignore.
You can outgrow your careers much like you can outgrow a space. You find yourselves someplace that isn’t quite “you” anymore.
So what do you do when you want to undergo a renovation project? You hire a contractor, project manager or designer to get you clarity on where it is you want to end up. You get clear on what it is you want; you create a plan and you get started.
With a career renovation, there are the same basic steps.
1. Getting clear on what you want to change.
What can start off as thinking you just need a fresh coat of paint might end up being a total gutting. You might think you just need a new challenge or a new boss when really it is bigger than you first expected. If you find yourself perusing the job boards for something that doesn’t feel right, it might be time to get serious about getting clear on what you are looking for.
2. Hire a professional to help you see your vision
We don’t know what we don’t know. (One of the truths I live by!) When you hire someone before you start the project, you get ideas you never even considered. Professionals can challenge you to look past the immediate issue and set you up for success in the long run.
3. Create a plan. Planning up front saves you time and money
So many do-it-youselfers end up needed a contractor or designer to bail them out of a project gone wrong wasting time and money. Starting with a plan and a destination is a sure way to know where you are going.
It might seem overwhelming to think about undergoing a career renovation, but it doesn’t have to be.
What are you waiting for?
Louise was very honest and good coach. Her advice on not to hire a coach at this moment is really helpful. Thanks to Louise.KAMRAN JAWAID
