Can Your Career Improve After a Divorce?
Can Your Career Improve After a Divorce?

 

A while back I wrote about career coaching within the context of a separation or divorce (click here to see that post).

 

It’s a challenging time when most people re-evaluate many aspects of their lives. This reevaluation sometimes leads to additional changes. More recently,  I wrote a second article on this topic with a focus on the workplace implications of divorce.

 

Here’s an encouraging article from the November 6, 2015,  Globe Careers section, Report on Business, Globe and Mail on the question: Can getting a divorce help your career? I was pleased to share my ideas on this question with columnist Leah Eichler. The full text of the article can be read here.

 

If you or someone you know is concerned about their career following a divorce, please share this story with them. Contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.

Signs of Burnout

Signs of Burnout

As acknowledged in Part One of this two-part series on burnout, we all have certain levels of stress in our work and careers. But if that stress is continuous and it’s stretching us too thin, then it can predispose us to develop burnout. Burnout is one of those things that doesn’t just go away. Someone dealing with burnout is a bit like an old rechargeable battery that gets depleted quickly and cannot hold a charge for very long.

Pandemic Burnout: Are You at Risk?
