I’ve been offered the job! It was great having the opportunity to speak with you prior to my interview. It enabled me to highlight my strengths as part of the conversation and I was able to be clear about my enthusiasm for opportunities to be proactive versus reactive. I also highlighted my desire to provide positive individual experiences. Our discussion not only assisted me in the interview but it also helped to increase my confidence!
I think I'm done toning it down for somebody else. And I feel like I'm going to have a lot of space to be myself to bring like my best whole self. And that it's work that I really care about. I feel like it's work that needs to be done and I'm excited that I get to do it. One of the things that I feel like you guys do really well is to keep us focused on what's right for us! I've told that to friends I've recommended Happen to Your Career to a lot of times!!!
I convinced myself for many years, that I was very lucky to have that job, and I would be crazy to leave it. I convinced myself that the team needed me even though I was miserable. And ultimately, it took me getting physically sick to realize I needed to leave! One of the biggest things that I learned out of the signature coaching was on designing my life. And this is another thing that I had really never, it had, I don't know, if it had never occurred to me. I just never believed it was possible until now.
I took your advice and I talked to my boss, telling him how I wasn’t enjoying work, wasn’t challenged enough etc. And it could not have gone better! He has actually recommended me for a job as a sales rep for one of our suppliers, that is a more challenging, involved position. He realizes that the position I am in now at his company does not have longevity and room for me to continuously grow. And now I have a job interview with that company!
