At some point in everyone’s career they face a situation that involves planning and navigating through an uncomfortable “shift” of transitioning from some state to another state:
You’re currently employed, but not really jazzed about your work: you might be coasting, bored or stressed, maybe you’re under-employed. You don’t want to leave your current organization but you want to be more excited about work, do something more meaningful and reap the rewards of your greater contribution.
You are actively in a job search or career transition: you’ve decided to leave, or perhaps the organization has laid you off. You’re trying to re-enter the workforce after a break for family or schooling; you’re wanting to change company & industry. Regardless, you need to navigate through a major career change & transition and land a great fit job.
You’re going Out on Your Own: You’ve decided to leave “standard employment” and go out on your own. You might refer to yourself as an independent, a freelancer, a consultant, or a contractor. You’re looking for help and training to be a more successful “Free Agent”.
Retiring, and seeking post-career purpose: While you have formally retired from your job, you know you have more to give back and you are keen to start thinking actively about what to do for your “next chapter”. The possibilities seem almost endless — how do you put some structure and discipline into the process?
