    Approaching a transition? Don’t go it alone.

    This blog was written by our newest associate, Doug Babkirk. “Ask for help and allow yourself to yield to forces stronger than your will or ego’s desires.” Angeles Arrien Living into the second half of life is filled with change – some of which we shape and some that is shaped for us. Rarely are significant life transitions successfully embraced as a solo act. Looking back on the significant changes […]

    What happens when you take a leap of faith?

    I’ve seen several clients recently who took a leap of faith around their work, so I decided the topic was blog material. While in each scenario, the circumstances surrounding the leap were unique; each person experienced a similar outcome. Take for example, the person who, after many years as a master teacher, quit teaching, even though he did not have a specific job or even a concrete alternative option in […]

    Pursue what engages you.

    Imagine that you have no other place to be for an entire day and you find yourself in the most fantastic of all bookstores. Books and magazines artfully displayed on any topic imaginable, along with cozy chairs and a well-stocked café, are at your disposal. Take a moment and give in to this fantasy, then step back and notice where you go and what you do. Are you wandering from […]

    Networking Etiquette Made Easy: Six Key Things to Remember

    Awhile ago I wrote a post about our Networking Made Easy events at Heart At Work Associates. In these events we emphasize execution and accountability. We ask participants what three actions they will take in the next week based on what they learned that evening. Most of the responses center around following up with the people they met to obtain introductions to potential contacts. These are great responses and we’ve heard […]

    What is your longing?

    I’m continuously touched by my clients’ poetic and poignant statements expressing their struggle and desire to find work that aligns with who they truly are. In a whisper of a voice a client said: “I have a yearning.” Hearing those words, I responded with an empathetic sigh and leaned in to hear more of what she had to say. What followed was an explanation about an intense desire to reclaim […]

    The Paradox of the Comfort of Crowds

    An interesting dynamic often occurs with new clients. They may sign on, initially because their current job search isn’t working. They have a traditional resume, one that lists, in chronological order, the responsibilities of the positions they’ve held over the years. They may have posted this resume on job boards and used it in applying for positions of interest they’ve come across on the boards or company websites. They’ve waited for […]

In order to make a wise choice for your career, it’s important to know what to consider in selecting a professional to help: What exactly is career counseling? How do you go about choosing a […]

    What anchors you in transitions?

    Transitions by their very nature make you feel less secure. But even in the middle of a transition that has you feeling lost amid unknown outcomes, you can regain your bearings and get grounded. Constantly focusing on what is unclear or confusing in your life, can make you feel frustrated and anxious.

    Are You Laying Bricks or Building a Cathedral?

    Clients often express frustration that they’re not finding meaning in their work. They may have at one time, but no longer. They may feel they have plateaued in their current role and there’s no place for them to go. They may have mastered their work and are no longer challenged. Their workplace may be disruptive or toxic and they have no power to change the environment. Work, for them, in a word…well it’s […]
