Are you feeling like you’re ready for a change? We all get there now and then. In my role as an executive coach, I sometimes hear clients telling me that they are struggling with feelings related to:
- Lack of opportunity
- Uncertainty about job fit
- Gnawing desire to do something different
When is the last time you did a “tune up”? By that I mean introspection about where you are now. There are many ways to begin this important introspection.
Perhaps you’re at a crossroads in your career or life. Some important times for reflection include:
- Milestone birthday (30, 40, 50, 60, etc.)
- Lifestyle change (marriage, divorce, birth of a child, loss of a loved one . . .)
- Class reunion
- Loss of a job
- And many more
A great place to begin is to complete one of the best assessments I’ve found during the course of my career—Personal Directions, created by MRG. The Personal Directions assessment can be used to explore:
“Personal and professional issues, to illuminate areas of strength as well as issues or conflicts that may need to be addressed. It can help individuals align their unique characteristics and preferences with their roles and responsibilities in order to increase their effectiveness, fulfill their potential and enhance their satisfaction in their personal and professional lives.”
If you decide to take this online assessment, you’ll receive a through report with an in-depth analysis about where you are at this moment in time. You can consider it a “snapshot” of where you are in all aspects of your world.
The feedback is rich in insight and will be the foundation for a detailed action plan that you create once you’ve assessed your current satisfactions and dissatisfactions with life, career and your world, in general. Clients who have taken this assessment say it’s been life-changing. Seriously, it’s a very powerful tool.
