When beginning her career 12 years ago, Betty* pictured herself working hard, performing well, & growing with her company. Despite her dedication & high performance, she was not promoted.
So, Betty moved up by moving on. Even though she had a higher title and a larger salary, Betty saw this as a black mark on her resume. She felt she failed because she was not internally promoted.
When Betty saw this pattern playing out at her next company, she decided she needed help. She wanted to figure out how to be seen as a confident & assertive leader. So, she sought out the support of a coach.
James* felt like his position was no longer a good fit for him. He had worked his way up to become a director and was performing well. However, he was feeling frustrated.
He had a new supervisor who micromanaged. After years of working for people who trusted him to do good work, the treatment from his new boss was irritating.
He was also frustrated by frequent questions from his team. People saw him as the “go to” person for quick, accurate answers. While he enjoyed being a resource, the constant interruptions made it difficult to focus on what he needed to get done.
In December of 2020, John* started a new job as a senior program manager at a large aerospace company.
It was a really tough transition, moving from a smaller team of just 30 people to a company of many thousands. The team he managed included highly skilled engineers. With a background in business, he felt like an outsider among such a technical team. It was difficult to gain their respect. John also faced challenges from his colleagues, the other program managers.
