Take a look at your tally of letters and discover your true career phase.
LAUNCH (Group A)
Group A, you are at the Launcher Phase of your career. You have either just started a new role, job or thinking of starting your own company. It is an exciting, risky and yet uncertain period. You don’t know everything yet, and it is ok! You will become an expert soon enough.
Recommendation: You should be spending time planning, reflecting, networking and getting comfortable with the new ground you are on. Take timeouts to restock. Make sure you take a few moments out to enjoy and celebrate yourself for what you are taking on!
LEAD (Group B)
Leaders, you already know the answer – you are exactly where you need to be and most likely enjoying the hell out of it. You are really in touch with the leader, decision-maker and influencer within you. Your energy is infectious and people want to be on your team. This is a great point in your career and should be thinking of taking things to the next level.
Recommendation: Plan for the future instead of worrying about it! There is still research to be done, solidify your vision, build strong relationships and create a reliable support team. Keep following your intuition, be confident in your abilities and continue to work hard, success is yours.
MATURITY (Group C)
You’re finally there, at the top of your game. You do a great job, people come to you all the time and you have little doubt about your performance. As you reap the benefits, you feel you can finally live in the moment – and yet, there never seems to be a moment to breathe!
Recommendation: It is time to ask yourself what’s next, pull out that old vision plan you made and brush the dust off. Review the feasibility and check the clarity of your next steps. Prevent yourself from snowballing into overwhelm and exhaustion. You don’t have to “do it all!” Have the tough conversations to get additional resources. Call in your advisors, it is time for clarification & strategy!
DECLINE (Group D)
If you find yourself mostly answering D, you already know you’re exhausted and probably more than just a little bit bored. You are conflicted with families, responsibilities, and fear but it has been feeling like time to go for more than just the recent past. Most days you are forcing yourself to get to work, and that is no way to live!
Recommendation: Get out of hibernation mode. I know it’s hard to find the energy, but talk to a career counselor, a mentor or a great friend…start updating your resume, send feelers out on LinkedIn. There are jobs out there that can relight the spark! Reach out to the network you have been actively building and take a small peak at what’s out there. Is there something you would love to do on your own, this may be the moment to give your old passions a shot of life!
