YOU are your biggest problem. When there are changes at a corporate level repercussions are felt widely. If you take the short term view your behavior goes down the drain and everyone recognizes your crazy behavior, except you!

 

 

TODAY’S QUESTION

Q: “I was recently laid off and am looking for a new job. To be specific, how many resumés should I be putting out per day?” -Jenny, Canada

A: Research shows you are most likely to get a job from somebody that you know. Each day network with people you know for 2-3 hours then put out 8-10 resumés. It is your full time job until you get another job!

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

How can you get out of your own way when there is something going on you don’t feel is in your best interest?

How you are getting in your own way and how to change it:

  1. Opt out of the game completely. There are many other ways to play the game. Don’t throw away years with a company for a few minutes of satisfaction. Turn it into a win, be patient.
  2. You’re playing the wrong game. The culture is behaving one way and you’re behaving the opposite way. Being a top performer isn’t enough if you’re not changing with the culture of the company. Adapt to match what the organization wants.
  3. You have fear of the unknown and self-doubt. Go against your instinct and instead of stepping back when you don’t know how to do something, step up, jump in head first and learn it!
  4. Your perception of things that are going on is not accurate. The story you create in your head makes things worse. Start asking questions and talk to people to get a glimpse into their own minds.
