The purpose of this podcast is to help you change your career and find your “ideal” role, a role that “fits,” a role where you can “flourish.” But what does that mean, exactly? Sociologists have studied this, and it turns out that people who use their strengths on a daily basis are happier, more productive, and more “fulfilled.” On the podcast today, I talk about the concept of “signature strengths” and the central role that they p...

Everyone has a network, but most people misunderstand how their network actually works. Studies have shown that it’s not the people closest to us who are the really powerful part of our network -- it’s the weak ties, the friends of friends, who truly matter for making things happen. Surprised? Confused? On this week’s podcast, I chat with Tanya Malcolm Revell, an HTYC success story who used the weak ties in her network to land her ...

Not only do we all want to be successful, we all want to feel successful. Often, that means getting a job that other people regard as important or prestigious, even if the job actually makes us miserable. It’s one more way we allow the expectations of others, the unwritten rules, trap us in a role that isn’t a fit. On the podcast today, Jackie Yerby discusses her distinguished career in public policy and how she escaped from the pr...

One of the first challenges in a career change is admitting that we need help. Sounds intense, right? But it’s true. We don’t want to admit that our careers are miserable, we don’t want to admit that we need to make a change, and, most of all, we don’t want to admit that we need someone to guide us through the process. On the podcast this week, I chat with Louise McNee, a true HTYC success story. Louise bounced around unsatisfying ...

We all have strengths and weaknesses, and as we advance through our careers, we learn to cater to our strengths and compensate for our weaknesses. But sometimes, the aspects of our personalities that we think of as weaknesses may be our greatest strengths. Growing up, Ross Loufbourrow thought of ADHD as his greatest weakness. It was only once he graduated college and began his career that he discovered ADHD wasn’t a weakness – it w...

In an age of email and LinkedIn, networking has never been easier. But networking has also become a dirty word. It means bothering people for favors or having them bother you, and knowing all the time that neither of you has any interest in actually getting to know the other person. Not surprisingly, this kind of transactional networking doesn’t really work. On the podcast this week, I chat with Darrah Brustein about her approach t...

One of the greatest assets that you can have in pursuing a career change is a support network of people who understand why career change is so important to you, and why you need their help to get through it. But creating this network may require some uncomfortable conversations. On the podcast this week, I chat with my former client Rebecca Maddox about how she built her support network, and the role that it played in her career ch...

Career change means leaving an established routine for something unknown, which is scary and, let’s face it, risky. That’s why I love career experiments as a way to learn about different organizations and roles so you can try before you buy and make sure a new organization or a new role will truly be a fit before you commit to it. On this week’s episode, I chat with my HTYC colleague Lisa Lewis about the benefits of career experime...

Over the course of our careers, as we grow, evolve, reach different stages in our lives, what once seemed like a dream job may stop feeling that way. And that’s great! Because it’s an opportunity to learn and explore who we are and what we want now, and then go get it. Kristy Wentz worked in PR for 20 years. And she loved it, until she didn’t. When she finally decided to move on, she created her own role that combined her favorite ...
