Top Secret Learned From Successful Executives

Episode 140 - The One Thing Every Successful Executive Has in Common

Episode 140 - The one thing every successful executive has in common

Note: This Podcast is a rebroadcast of Episode 93.

Dedicating time to plan your career is an excellent long-term investment

In this podcast episode, I address one of the most significant issues I discuss with prospective coaching clients when they want to get fast job searching or career progression results. I ask them to forget about me (i.e., the coach) for a moment. And think: are you dedicating time to this project? If not, are you willing to? Because coaching is an excellent investment, but it will only work if you incorporate into your life a new routine to sustain your career, ensure you progress towards your goals, and keep the opportunities coming to you in the long term.

I get it: It's challenging to know what to do and how to spend your time:

  • Should you be on Zoom having virtual coffees with your connections?

  • Or is it better to spend your time searching and applying for jobs online?

  • How can you look for work when you have a full-time job?

It's exhausting! Sometimes the anxiety and lack of confidence can be debilitating. And when you finally get around to applying for a significant role...crickets! You hear nothing back. So much time was wasted for nothing. At times, you want to give up.

Time management tips for job hunters and career planners

In this episode (number 93), I provide four tips so you can find the time, use it well, and incorporate career planning into your routine:

  1. Make a date with yourself.

  2. Make things more accessible and more streamlined with templates.

  3. Find time to test, plan, and prepare.

  4. Be in the moment.

Please listen to the episode to know what I recommend for each of the topics above.

Imagine job hunting without stress, confusion, and overwhelm

The information overload we experience daily drains our capacity to think and plan strategically for our life, career, and future happiness. Job hunting and career planning can be exhausting. When you're doing it on your own, the anxiety and lack of confidence are debilitating.

But it’s 100% possible to job hunt with confidence and take control of the outcomes for your future career steps. I know this because I have plenty of statements from my clients to prove that my coaching framework wors. I’ve been in the same situation in my career, and I created a proven system to help executives achieve their career goals.

If you are ready to take control of your career, I invite you to join my group coaching program. Enrolments are now open for a limited time, and this is the last group coaching for 2021. So if you want to get that new job or promotion this year, then this is your chance to navigate recruitment and selection with support, without overwhelming and guesswork.

I hope you enjoy this episode. Let me know what you think by following me on social media!
