As we start to slowly emerge from lockdown many people will be asking;
Will I lose my job? “Stood down”, what does it mean anyway? Am I in the right job?
These uncertain times can certainly bring up the concern of job security, but also presents an opportunity to truly check in with yourself and to consider “Is this the career path I always wanted?” or “Is my work a true expression of who I am?”
Why is this the best time to find out?
(a) This could be the wake-up call you have needed to commit to your passion, to look for greater fulfillment in a role where your strengths are appreciated, or an environment that “just-feels-right”. It’s important for you know exactly how to do this, with the right guidance, personalised tools, and perhaps the right coach.
(b) The stress of uncertainty compounds over time. Instead of waiting for conditions to change, why not alleviate your stress by getting clear about your purpose, your capability, and craft a plan to get you where you want to be. When you move from confusion to clarity, stress naturally disappears.
It’s time to gain clarity of purpose and of your future.
This crisis has hit hard and very quickly. It has thrown all normality as we know out the window and has left us disrupted and agitated. People wonder what is going to become of all this, of their jobs and of their way of life. The stress of this sustained crisis is likely to affect many people for months to come.
In these times, it’s important to know that anxiety and grief are natural states, however without intervention, your wellness can go from bad to worse. According to medical research conducted by Harvard University, chronic stress can keep us in fight or flight mode, and can diminish our performance and capacity to think effectively by up to 50%. Unless we take charge of our career related stress and wellness, the impact of this crisis could have grave financial and human consequences.
