Do You Feel This Way?
• Spending too many days pulling your hair out at work?
• You’re making good money, but you’re miserable?
• Communication problems with your boss/ supervisor/colleagues
• You’ve been sacrificing time from your personal and family life to meet those work deadlines. It’s expected, not appreciated.
• Perhaps your co-worker or boss takes credit for your ideas.
• You’d like to speak up for yourself, but you are afraid you’ll lose your job or that pay raise you’ve been waiting for
• Office politics just gets more toxic
Do you ever feel this way? If you do, I want you to know you really are NOT alone.
According to Gallup’s 2011-2012, 142 country report entitled the ‘State of the Global Workplace’, “only 13% of employees worldwide are satisfied at work”. Imagine 87% of workers are dissatisfied at work! That’s a lot of unhappy people.
What Choices Do I Have?
However, just because that is the way it is, does it mean you have to accept it?
Certainly there are things for you to consider. If you stayed exactly where you are, you’ll continue in the same negative downhill spiral to more misery. That’s a guarantee because you’ve got that negative momentum happening.
So how do you change that spiral into a positive one? It’s important to take stock of your knowledge, skills (communication and technical) and experience to ascertain a better plan of action. Often poor communication skills are at the root of a lot of problems at work. You might chaff at this idea, but wouldn’t it feel great to jump out of bed in the morning happy to go to work? It is possible. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “Find a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life” (Confucius). This is where counselling will make a difference for you.
How Therapy Will Help:
• We’ll sit down and explore why you’re dissatisfied.
• We’ll delve deeply into your unique situation and together we’ll discover the issues and create solutions tailored to you.
In my practice I have helped others identify the problems with their work environment and we successfully worked through it. Perhaps, we might find that your current occupation just isn’t a good fit for your personality any more. It might have been a great choice when you were in your early twenties, but you’ve now outgrown that decision.
If you’re ready for a career change, we will explore what other qualities, education and suitability you have for another career. If a career change is what you desire, then I will give you full support and coaching for your job interviews.
Whatever situation you need to get a handle on, we’ll do it together. You will be on your way to your happiest, best future!
