It has been several months since I let my fingers do the walking on my keyboard but I have finally pushed aside the excuses. Funny thing is even though I have been avoiding writing a new blog I have missed sitting down and sharing my thoughts, advice and reflections with my virtual friends.
At denovo HQ we have had the opportunity to work with some great clients this year. They find their way to us as when they are in need of support, advice, or just some inspiration to find their career mojo or that next career adventure. The most rewarding thing for me as a career strategist is getting feedback from clients that they have pushed through the fear barrier and are both motivated and determined to reclaim their career mojo. I have to be honest, sometimes reading these emails or receiving the feedback in person I feel guilty as all I did was help them identify what action needed to be taken and then encourage them take the first one or two steps.
In most cases my clients have been hesitant in taking the first few steps as they have allowed themselves to imagine the worse case scenario of those steps going badly wrong. Reality is even if they go slightly wrong or not as planned it is not a major catastrophe. At the end of the day you are the main reason your being held back from finding your career mojo or that next career adventure. So my challenge to you is what is something you can do to increase you career mojo and just get out there and take that step.
If you are sitting there and at a lose about what that step needs to be flick me a message and I would be happy to brainstorm some ideas with you.
