Commitment and Willingness
Almost on a daily basis, I am privileged to receive inquires about my services and I am more than pleased to discuss what I do, how I work, and what results potential clients can reasonably expect when engaging me.
Knowing I can’t do it for them, but being their successful mentor, coach, and partner in their potential job transition, I focus on two very important considerations they must make. Commitment and willingness.
Commitment to doing something good and positive for themselves. On a scale of 1-10 where are they/you? 1 is a phooey and 10 is a wow! If they/you are in the upper quadrant, then we could be a good match, other, probably not because of the lack of real motivation.
Secondly, is the willingness to expend the time, energy, and resources to make the commitment happen. Again, using the scale of 1-10, in the upper quadrant, looking to find or create a new and rewarding employment opportunity as an investment in themselves, then we are probably a good match. Anything less and probably not going to work.
Finding a new job in today’s environment takes focus and dedication, with a “doable” and realistic integrated plan of action, balanced 85% involving people first and 15% with the Internet second. People help, create and hire people they know and are comfortable with. Hard, if not impossible to effectively tell your story on a resume and submit blindly to an electronic job description that may, or may not be real.
My best to each of you and Happy Holidays!
