I know so many people at the moment who are feeling flat, frustrated or disengaged at work. Losing the enthusiasm you normally have for work can be really deflating.
In this episode, we uncover the reasons you may be feeling this way, and then I’ll step you through an action plan in order to get you re-energised about work again.
Firstly – nothing has gone wrong! It’s really normal to feel flat and disengaged at times during your career. And frankly, after the last two years with all the ups and downs, changed working environments and a huge cognitive load, it’s not surprising if you’re feeling this way.
But it’s not a fun space to sit in. So – I encourage you to grab our notepad and pen today and take some notes. Take this time for yourself to really get clear on what you want, and how to make it happen.
We’ll discuss how to move out of the lower, negative emotions you might be experiencing at the moment and how to shift into more possibility and optimism.
I’ll help you find solutions and approach your situation from the perspective of endless possibilities.
Allow yourself to step into being the person you want to be and stand in the possibility of the future that you want!
