Recently I attended a conference in Berlin, the capitol of Germany. I stayed at an AirBnB private room because I find it pleasant to interact with local hosts. Like always, we got into the conversation about what each of us is doing for business.
Our world, right now, needs leaders who know how to inspire, engage and get extraordinary results. As a leader, you’ve got opportunities, pressures, questions and complexities coming at you from all directions.
Are you struggling to hang on to a job or career path that has lost its meaning? Has the industry that you found so exciting early in your career lost its appeal? Are you close to being able to walk off into the sunset of your retirement years, but you find every step painful, frustrating, even soul crushing?
As we reach the midpoint of our career, most of us find ourselves asking whether or not it's time for a change. Sometimes we contemplate internal moves to increase our influence. Other times we consider making significant changes like changing industries, going from for-profit to non-profit, or starting our own business.
