Having trouble getting excited about going to work? Office politics got you down? Or maybe it’s time for a change?
We spend thousands of hours every year at work, so wouldn’t it be cool if you actually felt good about it? So many of us waste our Sundays dreading Monday mornings. Then we drag ourselves home after a full day at work with very little energy left. But it doesn’t have to be this way! While in some cases the best next step is a letter of resignation, there are lots of small changes that might make all the difference before you decide to jump ship.
Get out of your rut
The truth is, jobs are a place we sometimes get stuck in a rut. It can feel like things will always be just how they are now. However, our clients know there is a better way! Coaching is a great way to get out of your rut and on a new path.
Here are just a few ways that coaching can help you find career clarity, and get your work life back on track:
- Find what IS working, and change what’s not. Coaching is designed to both create awareness and make a plan for action. It might be that the root causes of some of your workplace gloom are easier to solve that you think!
- Find your voice. Coaching can help you get clear on what it is that YOU want and how you can be your own best advocate. You will then be able to more effectively manage conflict, make clear requests, set boundaries and improve communication.
- Find your role. Blaming others is easy, but rarely paves a path to sustainable change. Get clear on your responsibilities, and how you can play a more positive role in your office. Coaching can help you understand that the only thing we really control are our own actions, interactions and reactions.
- Find your path. Coaching might help you figure out that there are even better things in store for you. It might be time to work towards that promotion, or pursue a new option altogether. A coach can ask you the tough questions, and give you some clarity on how you can love Monday mornings again.
Are you ready to make big or small changes at work? Let one of our certified professional coaches help you figure out how to do just that. We offer a free exploratory session where you can decide if coaching is right for you, so you can make Mondays great again!
