Changing jobs from the inside is a powerful way to get more out of your work life. This site is about workplace challenges and the role you and your emotions play. Also, what new approaches you can put to work to create lasting change that feels right for YOU. Wherever you are. Whatever your job.
And if part of that change means it’s time for a new job or career, our job search & interview resource center can help with that too. [If you need a little more help, I also offer individual coaching by phone.]
As a career coach, my goal is to help you realize that you have the ability to make a difference. With a little patience, these tips can help you learn new methods. And new ways of looking at things — so you acquire the awesome power to change your own work life!
Here on Work To The Wise we stick to the core basics of emotional intelligence. How awareness of your own feelings — and the feelings of people around you — can help change the way you respond to things. And how people respond to you, a very valuable job change tool.
By learning how to observe, identify, and work with emotions (and with people), you can actually change the way a job feels. And you can avoid a lot of unnecessary drama and automatic emotional triggers that serve no real purpose, except as a workplace reality show that does nothing to help you change things for yourself.
Add to that some basic, practical street smarts, and you have a solid formula for workplace success. Not that it’s all quite that easy. But awareness — along with a willingness to try new things — is a great beginning. Luckily, new habits, even with occasional misses, can turn into lifelong faithful friends. And we want to help you get there.
Well, at least with a few words to the wise we can aim for picture two!
