hate my job

Do you currently hate your job?

Are you seriously considering a job change in the very near future?

Let career coach, Unre Visagie show you how to manage your current situation to your greatest benefit!

Scroll down for the video.

We are here today to look at careerdevelopmentplan.net, the Career Maker system that assists people to move from perceived career boxes all the way to great careers as we will see in the next ten minutes. We’re specifically here today to look at your career direction and possible job change; you’ve had enough of the job and the way it works at the moment, we have agreed that something must change, and soon.

Typically what creates this perception of a career box are all kinds of fears from which follow many perceived risks. There are the fears of failure and the fears of change looming large for most!. If we just look at fear itself, it is simply false evidence appearing real, it’s rarely got substance to it, and even if it’s got substance, it can be managed. These perceived fears are the well spring of perceived risks and therefore risks are not real. Of course there are the fears of failure. In this situation we are just going to look at failure as a first attempt in learning. You have learnt this way all your life, from walking and talking to everything you can do today, it all went through a process of trial and error until you succeeded. It’s like learning to ride a bicycle; all we’re doing is holding the bicycle a little bit during this process of change. Safe bicycle riding; you shouldn’t lose any skin.

There are three situations we would like to look at:

  1. People can sometimes just change their job in the company, or even just change the way they approach the job.
  2. Some of you may be in a situation where they need to change the job and the company.
  3. Sometimes we find, and some of you may have today, where you want to change the job, the company and the industry you are currently working in.

Now where do we change from and what are we changing to?

We begin with the store each one of us here has; a store of assets. We can typically look at those assets as experience, expertise, industries, aptitudes and relationships. Those are things you’ve accumulated and we find that very few people can articulate these experiences into identifying which job it will fit, which company it will fit, which industry it will fit. Therefore we start by looking at the external world, where all the resources are available that you could possibly imagine. There must just be a process for you where you can take these resources and internalize it, we will show you here. To achieve this process view it like a staircase. Each of you is going to make your own staircase. You’re going to then climb you own staircase, hence the perceptions of big risks.

That is what we have learned from the people in our companies, that we have coached since to professional master coach; that this scary process, once it becomes known, all fear, all risks disappear. Career Maker system makes it clear and real and straightforward. Let’s get started by exploring your exact needs today. We typically like everybody to go through a review, even if you know you want to change your job. You may be any of the three situations. It’s still very good at this time to just do a proper exploration, re-check each element, and by checking it you grow anyway.

The second step is to use this information you’ve accumulated and state clearly why and what you choose each item of information. You typically discuss it with some people around you. It’s all part of your preparation. Then you go to respected people; I know each of you have respected people that you admire. With a clear plan you’ll be able to approach them. They are then the people you want to engage to take you on your next level, job, career direction, the company and the industry. Also the work you choose on a daily basis. This process grows your store.

You already grow in your various assets, you become more visible, and more people know that you are ready for this new thing. By the end of it you align your job with the industry and the company clearly. You can tell anybody that asks very quickly: “I like this company because…” “I like this industry because…”  “I like this job because…” You’ve got to be very clear. It’s just like selling a product; in this case, you are the product. You’ve got to be clear, or they can’t help you. If you are clear everybody wants to help you.

Secondly you do the same process in your current job, you are clear about the work you like and this process is to align your work, do less of some, and do more of others. You will see the process in the next inbox. You aligned that within your job, so you moved your job a bit. Most jobs today are portfolio jobs, I realize all of you do things outside your job definition and some things in the job definition are done by others. That is how the concept of the portfolio job came about, that everybody talks about today. With this alignment and clarity of your process, you now have a clear career aim, you can even call it a career beacon, and you can put the beacon anywhere, and you can see it and other people can see it and you can aim directly for it. You end up in charge of your future.

Never again will you be worried that you can lose your job. Losing your job is almost an exciting thing. You will never be scared again that you will not be paid for what you do, because you will learn how to ask for what is due to you. It’s all part of the process in the next inbox.

You end up with clear insight, knowledge and confidence. The confidence comes from being able to say who am I, what is the job, what is the industry, what is the company, where’s my career going, what tasks do I like doing. This clarity you can call a man with a plan. A man with a plan we found is welcome everywhere. Prof. Kroon couldn’t get holiday jobs for his students six years ago. Today 700 of his students get holiday jobs using the process. All Prof. Kroon does is; he helps the students become clear about the company, the industry, the job, which they approach with clarity, and all of them get their own internship or holiday job, which is part of the curriculum; they must gain experience.

You can’t fail to get the job you want and hopefully you will never in your life use the words again: “I had enough of my job.” You will know how to move from that box, because we see it as a box, all the way through to this great process. We find that people walking the road with us typically get 30 – 40% increases in the next 18 months to 2 years. Several of our people in the program during the last few years got between 20 and 30%, even recently when the company gave no increases, they laid some people off; the people who knew where they were going still got their 30% increase. It’s quite amazing.

It is now as near full-proof as we can get it. Let’s look at where we go from here. Moving from the career box to the great space, with your great asset list, never again using the words: “My job sucks.” Because you will be in charge, you will choose the job you like, how can such a job suck? Change then becomes the excitement it should be with the Career Maker System, the clarity of steps, the ease of execution, the assistance, makes it very straightforward. The next step towards your midlife career change to a job that doesn’t suck will be in your inbox tomorrow. I hope you watch out for it and you are with us forward.

Delegate and grow your own as well as other careers
What is delegation?
It is when one is able to give the work you do not enjoy doing to another who does enjoy doing that work, but you stay responsible for getting the job done on time. Successful delegation is when another person excels in their careers because they enjoy doing the work you do not enjoy doing. Read more on the practical application of this process on the Explanation page…
An example:
When we were learning from Hewlett Packard, an HP manager was expected to assist in the promotion of at least two people, from their team, into position higher than his/her own. HP managers transferred their skills through delegating work to those in their team, always keeping responsibility for the work to be done on time. Never abdicating, always delegating.
This ensured the people in Hewlett Packard kept on developing and growing their careers. Inherently Hewlett Packard as a company developed and expanded as well! Hewlett Packard is a greenhouse for developing the careers of its people.
Coaching session implementing delegation:
The team leader for the Alephsynergy is Unre. A member of this team is Nicholas. Aleph publishes the knowledge of successful people and companies on the internet. Unre wants the process of Find a Career Coach written and published as soon as possible. He does not just abdicate the responsibility of getting this process published; he guides when Nicholas gets stuck and is always available to answer questions. The ultimate responsibility of getting the page published remains with Unre.
Unre:
Nicholas, the process of Find a Career Coach needs to be published on the Career Builder web site.
Nicholas:
I have the skills to package and publish the Find a Career Coach process; I do not have the necessary in depth knowledge on career coaching to package this knowledge on my own though.
Unre:
With the team of career coaches at Career Builder we have all the coaching knowledge necessary to complete this process. Ask them to help you build this process, I will assist as well.
Nicholas:
How would I go about getting this knowledge from the team of Career Builder coaches?
Unre:

They have had unique experiences in building their own careers and are currently focused on specific areas of building businesses and careers. Learn what these specific areas of career and business building skills are and package this knowledge into the Find a Career Coach process.
Nicholas:
How would I get this knowledge from them?
Unre:
Use the questioning and listening skills from the Career Development Guide. If you don’t fully understand how to implement these skills effectively, come to me with your questions.
Unre does not enjoy writing and clarifying information. He delegates these functions to Nicholas who does enjoy doing this. Nicholas lacks the in-depth knowledge concerning the Find a Career Coach process and relies on Unre and the rest of the expert team to supply this information. The process of Find a Career Coach gets written and clarified.
Unre will be available for questions concerning the Find a Career Coach process. There will be new skills Nicholas needs to learn in order to complete the Find a Career Coach project successfully. Even if he does not ask questions, Unre will set a specific time aside on a regular basis for coaching and mentoring; expecting Nicholas to bring a few, never before asked questions to these meetings.
