"Why Do People Feel Stuck at Work?"

Type that question into your favorite search engine and see what comes up. No, really! I'll wait!

The answers will take awhile.

The truth of the matter is that there is not one clear answer. There are many reasons.

Here are just a few:

  • The pay and benefits.

  • The comfort zone.

  • Fear of the unknown.

The pattern becomes recognizable after you spend 20+ years observing human behavior at work, train over a few hundred people, lead a few teams, build programs, actively engage in the hiring process, put out a fire or get the idea. These feelings manifest themselves in statements, most often sounding like:​

  • "I'm burnt out. I don't even know what I would do if I weren't doing this."

  • "I'm stuck."

  • "I can't leave. My team needs me."

  • "I can't take a pay cut."

  • "I don't have enough experience. No one would hire me."

  • "I like it here; but there's no options to grow. So I need to find something else."

That's a problem I can solve.

As a Career Coach, I specialize in 'Stuck'.

What I discovered over the years was that the pattern doesn't have to be a pattern. With the right coaching, a person can discover their own path and skillset, resulting in increased confidence, job satisfaction, and company retention. Unhappy talent is a wasted opportunity for growth. As a PARWCC Certified Professional Career Coach, it's my job to help you become happy talent. How? Glad you asked!

  • Together, we discuss the problem at hand. What is causing your need for change? These show up as barriers to career satisfaction.

  • We assess your readiness to make a change and use tools to help identify strategies. We use those strategies to build a plan.

  • You implement the plan and I provide support along your path.

Career Coaching IS a supportive measure to help one find satisfaction in their career path, whatever it looks like for them. It IS NOT a quick fix, a quick placement, or a quick career change. I work with people who want to explore their options; whether they choose to stay with their current workplace setting or want to work to find a different path; the key here is the journey is all about YOU.
