DON'T GET STUCK IN THE CAREER PIPELINE!


It's Fall and I'm back on the road talking to individuals across the United States about how and why they should constantly be rewiring their lives at work and at play. In addition to my normal Boomers and beyond group, I now meet 30 and 40 year olds who are curious about why and how they could rewire and set themselves up for a better future.


With four generations in the workplace, and the pipelines of promotion getting clogged with boomer bodies, it isn't surprising that everyone is looking for new ideas and ways to manuveur in the workplace. We have discovered that the rewiring process we created for DON'T RETIRE, REWIRE! is in reality a non-age specific life enhancement tool. I know that this is a mouthful, but that is exactly what rewiring is all about! Life enhancement regardless of age !



If you are feeling stuck in your work role for whatever reason don't abandon hope.

After you have done an attitude check on yourself, consider the following:

1.) to look for new things to do at work that would further advance your career


2.) to identify those drivers, personal motivators, that make you tick at work


3.) to find new avenues to fulfill those drivers on the job


4.) to not feel that adding new tasks would zap energy, but rather increase your energy


5.) to decide that this is the time to learn a new skill or two that you have been postponing


5.) to accept that a lateral move can positively impact your career


6.) to remember that up is NOT the only way


7.) to believe that the grass is NOT always greener on the other side


8.) to believe that Boomers will retire from their jobs one day and rewire into their next acts


9.) to position your self well for when Boomers leave and the pipeline reopens


10.) to always demonstrate a positive attitude so you stand out as a real team player



The above won't guarantee success, but using these ideas definitely set you apart from the pack!
