The way High Performers approach career change is different than everyone else. Also, the way that career change (that leads to meaningful work that also pays well) works is different than most people think it does.

We've share these principles before, but we've never put it all together (at least not outside of our paid programs).

Until now.

Our HTYC team has spent countless hours putting together a career change guide, pu...

This episode isn't for everyone. I was invited to come talk on my friend Dave Stachowiak’s podcast Coaching for Leaders to come and talk about the biggest reasons high performers leave other organizations.

I used to be in recruiting and conducted thousands of interviews. In almost every single interview I, people say they want the same thing: “I want a place where I can grow”.

When I would press them on it - “What does growth mean for you?” - nearly all of them didn’t have an answer. Or the answer was something like, “I want to be able to contribute to the organization.”

I thought this was fascinating because we all intuitively know ...

For many years, my wife, Alyssa, and I have had the argument about what is the “better way” to do hard things.

For example: 

  • Do you never have sugar/carbs or do you allow a cheat day?
  • Is it better to train for a half-marathon by running with friends long distances or by doing sprints alone during the weekend? 
  • Do you create new habits in your life by getting an accountability buddy or by taking the time to write out your purpose and ...

    Today’s podcast episode is not a normal episode where Scott interviews some awesome person and you get to glean from all the insight and inspiration.

    It’s not even one of those episodes where Scott brings you awesome knowledge-bombs by himself or a co-host.

    Today, we’re sharing an interview that Scott had on another podcast - so Scott gets to be in the hot seat, answering tons of questions - specifically about strengths.

    Job interview = sweaty palms + racing heart + blank mind

    It feels like the interviewer can see right through you.

    But, let me let you in on a little secret: You have no reason to be nervous. Because, you are interviewing that company just as much as they are interviewing you!

    If we're honest with ourselves, we spend way too much time on things we don’t find important or essential.

    This leaves us feeling a lack of accomplishment and satisfaction.

    Learning to identify and focus on just the essential things is a whole different lifestyle that few are willing to live.

    Best-selling author Greg McKeown of “Essentialism” shares how you can become an essentialist and radically change your life.

    Do you wake up in the morning excited to go to work?

    If not, why?

    There is no reason to be living a life that doesn’t suit you or make you happy.

    Possibly the most difficult part of finding opportunities that fit you, is locating organizations that are a perfect match for you. After all, there really isn’t a list out there of companies that are small family-style organizations that happen to allow highly flexible schedules and also have large amounts of resources and a leadership team hell-bent on integrity. 

    Those organizations are out there, for sure, but the question is: ...

    Ever notice how everything people want in life comes from doing difficult things (that very few people are willing to do)? This is often because you can’t tangibly see an impact right away.

    What if you could get access to career opportunities simply by using words? Or stand out against the millions of people on Linkedin so that companies contact you (instead of trying to chase job postings)? 

    It’s more than just possible, it’s a realistically learnable skill for anyone who is willing to put in the effort. Once you learn this skill you can have a competitive advantage for the rest of your life (and career).

    You’ve been ignoring that feeling in your gut for months, even years. Maybe it’s been about your job, or how you’re raising your kids or even the fact that you think you might be settling in your relationships. Whatever it is now it’s time to learn to start paying attention to it.

    Why? 

    Because science and research tell us that your intuition is great at letting you know when things are off. What it’s not great at is helping you un...

    On Monday, I shared our podcast episode about how career change really works and showed you .

    And I mentioned a 13-step process to make a successful career change.

    Today, we get into what is the step-by-step process.

    Now, I say process a little bit liberally, because, in reality, this is a very squiggly line type event.
