Executive Coaching Resources


Doing What You Love

As an executive, you work hard. Your life revolves around your job. It pays the bills and helps you live comfortably. But what if it just doesn't excite you as much as it once did?

This is a common problem that many executives face and one that executive coaching can help you resolve.

Why did you choose your job? Was it the job security or the benefits? Or perhaps there was a time when you loved your job, but things have changed. Your original motive doesn't matter anymore.

What does is that you need a new way to think about your job. You need to love your job again. Here are some executive coaching tips:

Soul search. When it comes time to making a career or job change, you want to understand what is best for you. If you aren't quite sure, try reading some books on the subject. You can also take personality tests and quizzes in an attempt to understand. If you understand yourself and your likes and dislikes, you are more apt to make great choices.

Assess your current job. What is it about your current job that you don't like? Is it the hours? Is it your career field? Spend some time to make sure you list everything. This will help you decide if it is your career choice that you don't like, or just your current job. Other factors that could make your dissatisfied include your boss, commute, and work load.

Consider self employment. This is an important question to consider. Self employment has many rewards. Sometimes people who aren't satisfied with their jobs find their peace when working for themselves. Yes, it is hard work. But if you are doing something you enjoy, the extra work is worth it.

Find your passions. Do you have any dreams? What about hobbies? You can turn things that you are passionate about into a worthwhile career. People who love to cook can consider a career as a chef. If you love to paint, you can pursue it full time. Choose a goal and just go for it.

Hiring an executive coach can help you implement many of these ideas.

Learn skills. To achieve your dreams, keep in mind that you'll need to learn the required skills. If you want to go into business for yourself, you'll need to learn skills such as marketing and bookkeeping. If you want to become a chef, you'll need to go to culinary school or get some practical experience as a chef. You can learn new skills through books, classes, or by going back to school.

Don't give up. This is the most important piece of advice of all. Send out your resume. Work hard. Know that rejection may come your way. Just don't give up. If you want to change your life, you need to take risks. Keep trying until you succeed.
