Check these eye-popping stats from McKinsey & Company: since April 2021, more than 15 million workers have quit their jobs. In their recent survey, another 40% of workers are at least “somewhat likely” to quit in 3-6 months. Forty percent have quit without another job lined up. These departing employees cited a lack of “sense of belonging” and “feeling valued” as primary motivators for leaving.
The takeaway: if you're considering a career shift, you're not alone. And, feeling a lack of belonging or value are oh-so-valid reasons to move on.
Five more signs you may need a course adjustment in your career path:
❌ You're consistently burnt out, even after a vacation;
❌ You can't seem to get promoted or elevated despite your best efforts;
❌ You find yourself consistently disagreeing with leadership's decisions;
❌ You struggle to approach each day with a sense of purpose and meaning;
❌ You find that what do best and what you love doing most is far less than 80% of your weekly work load.
We spend 40+ hours per week at work. There's no reason to be miserable. Working aligned with your passions, values and talents will boost your overall feelings of energy, connection and personal power.
