One of the most common times we ask ourselves, “What’s Next?” is in the context of our careers, whether that means taking a different role in your organization, going for a promotion or making an even bigger shift. One of the main strategies we covered in Jeff Ton’s book “Amplify Your Job Search,” was hiring a career coach.
This week we double down on the “What’s Next?” concept and welcome Brad Finkeldei, President of Career Confidence, a recovering IT professional, turned career and leadership coach. Brad and Jeff discuss the importance of clarity as a catalyst for creating the change you want as well as the two most common themes Brad sees among IT professionals: fear and false narratives. This episode is full of stories around how people got out of their own way and created a path more aligned with who they are and what they wanted their life to look like.
