We all go through puzzling or difficult times. And sometimes we need a major change, perhaps even a new professional direction. You’re the boss of your career. So when it’s time to go another direction, you’re the one who must come up with a plan.
But what do you do when you don’t know where you want to go? There’s no simple solution. Typically, what you must do is launch a process that sets the groundwork for your transition. From years of coaching experience, I know that the difference between just dreaming about a new phase, and actually getting there, often comes from setting up a methodical process that helps you to create change a little bit at a time.
