My Advice

 

Anyone can sign up for executive coaching, hand over the money and sit in on a series of sessions, but not everyone is “coachable.” If your mind is closed to exploring new insights about yourself and being challenged about your assumptions, you won’t be able to reap the real benefits. Executive coaching offers you a full, 360-degree view of your skill set, character and roadblocks — warts and all.  It can be hard to hear, but at the end of the day, if you want to see a change in your work life, you need to make a change in the way you live it.

Just 8 billionaires own ½ the world’s wealth. Global water demand will increase at least 37% by 2050. Inequalities are up and family income is down. I don’t know about you, but these facts stir me up. How can I help be a part of the change? Every day I work with leaders and impact professionals and like my clients, I am always trying to do and be better.

Last month, I attended two events that helped me to think through some of the big questions facing impact business leaders. I came away with a few insights that I want to share with you:

When it comes to a trade off between your salary and your sanity, there is only sustainable choice. As someone who went through this process, I can tell you that you might surprised by how having less money could make you better off in the long term. When I started my career coaching business, I transitioned from a cushy corporate consulting job to a start-up impact career being self-employed. Yes, this change came with a huge pay cut. However, I also became my own boss and gained unmatchable flexibility.

Spring is nearly over – don’t let the season pass without updating your key social media accounts for maximum impact in the impact sector! LinkedIn is particularly valuable for social impact and environmental professionals working to achieve results across the three levels of the triple bottom line. With few formal networks and a multi-disciplinary skillset, we don’t tend to fit into the typical boxes. This is a major challenge for those of us working in the sector as well as those looking to break into it from another career.

The last 15 years have seen major changes in the world of recruitment. When I started out as a hiring manager, we advertised in the newspaper and on the major jobs websites, and CVs arrived by post (usually) or email (occasionally).

It’s a bitter pill to swallow for job seekers who spend their Sunday afternoons trawling the jobs boards and fine-tuning their CVs, but just as media has gone social, so too has recruitment. Easier, cheaper and faster than traditional hiring processes, networking is now the No. 1 way new positions are filled. And while it’s hard to get reliable figures, I hear time and time again from my corporate clients that these vacancies aren’t even necessarily being advertised. I call this the “secret jobs market,” and it has huge implications for your job search.

A New York Times article identified work as having a strong influence over how happy we are, pointing out, “Work can bring happiness by marrying our passions to our skills, empowering us to create value in our lives and in the lives of others.”

Feeling fulfilled in your job starts with getting in touch with what makes you happy. Once you have identified that, you can start to think about how you can map your career decisions to those criteria.
