Resilience through unexpected career shifts is often something you realize in retrospect. It’s natural to feel stress in times of change, especially during unexpected transitions that impact your financial security. It can feel overwhelming when you’re walking through them. Once you know that you successfully regained a certain equilibrium in your life you can look back with greater perspective. It’s rare these days to have a job that lasts a life time or even to have a linear career journey. We’re in a time of transition societally and many people are experiencing that in a very personal way, particularly in their career.
One way to gain perspective in the moment is to recall times where you have successfully navigated unexpected shifts in the past. Another way to gain perspective is to tap into other people’s experience.
In this episode of Unlimited, I invited F. John Potter (aka my dad) to join me in a conversation about what resilience looks like through unexpected career shifts.
Some of what we talk about in this episode includes:
- Being open to the unexpected
- Decision-making with the support of friends
- Courage and defining enough
- Navigating unemployment
- The accumulation of skills
Thank you for listening!
