I wanted to share with you a story about my career coaching client, Richard. He is an engineer and received a wonderful performance review earlier this year. He also has gotten informal feedback from his boss and peers on a more consistent basis than ever. This wouldn’t be possible if he hadn’t put effort into building his confidence. If you want to see change in any area of your life, you have to take the initiative and do what is best for you. This is especially true if you are seeking career fulfillment.
If you are unhappy in your career, it’s important to really put yourself out there and tell people what you want. I credit Richard for all of his hard work. He has truly built up his confidence and has become more assertive throughout his career coaching process. He also has learned the importance of managing up (or managing his boss) more effectively. Nice work Richard!
