How to Handle a Mid-Career Crisis
HOW TO NAVIGATE A MID-CAREER CRISISAre you facing a mid-career crisis? Don’t PANIC! The good news is that there is a FORMULA for career success! In episode 257 of Your Career Podcast we focus on this formula.Firstly, are you STUCK IN A RUT?Have you ever felt stuck in your career? Like you’re not making any progress, or you’re not enjoying your work anymore? You are not alone. Many mid-career professionals face a career crisis at some point in their lives.I frequently come across this CAREER SCENARIO:You’ve jumped from job-to-job, feeling dissatisfied, always looking for the elusive perfect role. Or you’ve been working in the same company for over 10 years, doing the same kind of work, day in and day out.You are good at what you do, but you feel frustrated, bored and unfulfilled. And you also feel unappreciated and that affects your self-confidence and job satisfaction. You want to do something more meaningful and challenging, something that aligns with your passion and purpose.  And of course you need to earn a living too.  But you realise it’s not all about the money, even though your priority is to ensure that you can pay your bills.  But you don’t know what you’re passionate about, let alone the ‘purpose’ that you’re supposed to find. There are so many options and possibilities, and you don’t know which one is right for you. You're scared you may make a wrong move, or risk your financial stability.  Perhaps you have people who depend on you and your income too.You feel trapped in a career that no longer suits you, but how can you make a break for it without risking everything?  And another month goes by, then another and a year later you realise you’re still in the same place, continuing around on that proverbial hamster wheel.And then redundancy looms … oh no!  You feel anxious and pray that your role won’t be affected.  Then a call from HR for a meeting and your heart sinks.  What you had hoped would never happen, is happening.Don’t struggle on your own. Invest in your career success with one-on-one bespoke career coaching . I’ve over 70+ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Google reviews from my happy clients.And what if you want to FAST TRACK YOUR CAREER SUCCESS?

How to Change Career Later in Life
Changing career later in life has become a notable trend in Australia, as it has in many other parts of the world, due to a combination of factors.While each individual’s reasons may vary, several common trends and drivers contribute to this phenomenon.   I was invited to discuss this on Sunrise on Channel 7 recently, as a career coach and career transition specialist, and enjoyed having the film crew turn up at my home to film the interview for the broadcast (watch the interview on my YouTube channel).The condensed interview is included in this podcast episode.  Let’s understand the key drivers for this change in careers for older workers in Australia, and listen to the episode for details and inspiration if YOU are thinking of making a career change. Main reasons for making a change are:·      A longer life expectancy·      The evolving workforce·      A desire for personal fulfillment·      Financial security·      Redundancy and Job Insecurity·      New education and training opportunities·      Age Discrimination protections·      Work-Life balance·      Retirement redefined (listen to my interview on the 'Retirement Success Podcast' with Dennis Heath)·      Personal growth·      Mentorship and experience The increasing prevalence of career changes later in life in Australia reflects the shifting of priorities and recognition that one’s career journey can be dynamic and multifaceted.What are your thoughts?

Adam Scougall - So You Want to Be an Interior Designer?

Adam Scougall - So You Want to Be an Interior Designer?
Today’s very special guest is Adam Scougall,  corporate professional turned Interior Designer who now successfully combines two careers! I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Adam through his career reinventions and delighted that Adam now blends the best of both worlds and has created the satisfying and rewarding career he loves. In episode 251 of Your Career Podcast he shares his fascinating corporate, creative and entrepreneurial journey.  A little known fact about Adam is that he was a child actor and featured in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome with Mel Gibson and Tina Turner in 1985! Adam’s story is one that is a little out of the box. We hear a lot about interior designers aspiring for luxury clients and an office full of staff. But Adam couldn’t imagine anything worse. After 18 years of people, leadership in his corporate life, he ventured out in in 2018 to running his solo design biz full time. This lasted for 3.5 years before he returned to where he started. Corporate [with a buzzing design side hustle]After working with a broad range of clients, some great and some a nightmare, Adam became tired of having to accept jobs that could make ends meet, as opposed to fulfilling his creative juices. Covid didn’t help financially, nor an always ‘pending’ recession, and after those years, Adam realised he did not wish to pursue a ‘be all and end all’ approach to his design career. He wanted stability, steadier finances and the ability to only take on design work that fulfilled both his own and client vision.Adam now enjoys what we call a lifestyle business, balancing projects he only wants to take on whilst [now happily] holding down a full-time gig at his corporate firm of choice. He has also developed his own signature design implementation system that employs other designers to assist day to day, with Adam coming in only at key points in the project.Adam is about to launch his podcast telling all his experiences.  Watch out for the launch on podcast platforms on 5th September 2023!  “SO YOU WANT TO BE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER?”His aim for the show is to teach you the thrills, reveal the spills and show you how you can create an Interior Design career that suits your lifestyle.Where to find Adam:  Adam's Podcast, "So You Want to be an Interior Designer?"  https://www.soyouwanttobeaninteriordesigner.tv/ Adam Scougall Designs https://adamscougall.com/ Adam on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/adamscougall/ Adam on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV055_s7AX_Nsd--zbmf7cg Adam  in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdom>>>>>>>>Stay on track to reach your career goals!

Is It OK Not to LOVE Your Job?
Jul 22 2023
Is It OK Not to LOVE Your Job?
If you DON’T love your job. Is that a bad thing?It may be controversial, but perhaps it is OK not to love your job!There is so much focus on following your passion and purpose that I believe that many of us have forgotten that people work to earn money in order to pay their bills.Of course it’s important to enjoy what you do, but if you don’t feel PASSION for your work that does not make you less worthy as an employee than someone who displays great passion for their job function, or industry, or company.Everyone has a motivator and at different times in your life you may find that what motivates you changes.This episode of YOUR CAREER Podcast is the result of an interesting article I read in the Weekend Australian entitled “Why Passionate Staff May Be Bad for the Office Culture” and, wanting to read more, I clicked through the links and voilà, I found this excellent article by Winnie Jiang, Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, that inspired today’s newsletter:‘Your Most Passionate Employees May Not Be Your Top Performers‘.In this episode I discuss what was written and provide some insights into what I know will be helpful to you in your career.  I mention my Career Clarity Pack and assessments in this episode - if you want to assess your motivators in your role, find the Career Clarity Pack here.Please feel free to comment, disagree, add to what I discuss in this episode as I love a robust discussion.This podcast is to prompt you to think about your own career and also for me to learn from you, the reader, so I'd love to know your thoughts on this topic.

Alden Mills - Navy Seal, Author, Speaker - Be Unstoppable

Alden Mills - Navy Seal, Author, Speaker - Be Unstoppable
Navy Seal Alden Mills shares his career journey with Jane Jackson on Your Career Podcast as he is on a mission to help 100 million people Be Unstoppable. He has over 40 years of experience failing and succeeding in areas including sports, the military, business, nonprofits and community action groups.Alden has learned that success is driven by one vital factor – leadership – of oneself and others. Alden Mills first learned to lead himself. As a weak child with asthma, doctors insisted he limit physical activity and avoid sports. But no he didn't! With the mindset instilled in him by his mother that “no one defines what you can and can’t do, but you,” he went on to become a National Collegiate Champion rower, earning Gold and Silver medals at the Olympic Festival, and a Navy SEAL who was top of his class.

Are You TOO OLD To Be Hired?

Are You TOO OLD To Be Hired?
Are you too old to be hired? Do you ever wonder if you’re too old to land another job?  Or that your age is a barrier to what you really want to do?Now, those of you who already know me will know I get on my high horse about ageism in the workplace and how I believe we are NEVER TOO OLD to reinvent our careers. Yes, that's right - we are NEVER TOO OLD to be the person we were born to be.In this episode I promised to give you the links to a number of interesting posts and resources and you'll find them at the bottom of these shownotes.Let me ask you, if you're over 30, over 40, over 50, over 60, over 70 are you too old to:Be heard?Be loved?Be appreciated?To contribute your years of experience and knowledge to benefit someone who's problems you can help to solve?To be considered as an individual rather than an age-bracket?Are you too old to learn something new?Or to try something different?And TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT? Unfortunately, according to a 2021 report by the Australian Human Rights Commission, age discrimination remains a significant issue in the workplace, affecting both job seekers and employees. Here are some statistics on ageism in the workplace in Australia:Around 27% of workers over the age of 50 reported experiencing age discrimination in the workplace.Older job seekers are more likely to experience long-term unemployment, with the average duration of unemployment for workers aged 55 and over being around 71 weeks.Older workers are more likely to be retrenched or have their contracts terminated, and they find it more challenging to secure new job opportunities than younger workers.and this one surprised me:Despite being a protected attribute under Australian law, only 56% of workers are aware that age discrimination is illegal.So how can we overcome ageism in the workplace? In this episode I discuss in detail these strategies:UpskillingNetworkingHighlighting transferable skills Addressing negative stereotypesTo overcome ageism it requires a collective effort from employers, employees, and society as a whole. I’d like to ask you: How are you helping to promote a culture of inclusivity and respect for all generations? What else can we do to create a more equitable and age-diverse workplace? Let’s keep the conversation going and I'd love you to send me a message on LinkedIn or share a post of you in action showing your energy and enthusiasm regardless of age and tag me so I know!Check out my CAREER SUCCESS Program Colleen Heidemann in action  wearing a t-shirt with the slogan: OLD IS THE NEW BLACK!>>>>>>>>Stay on track to reach your career goals!
