Have you ever felt stuck in your career?
I was recently talking with a client and she told me, “There is just no room for improvement in my present career.” She felt handcuffed by her situation.
I asked her, “So there isn’t a creative way you could improve your situation?”
She paused. “Ah, um, well…” She trailed off. “I could do a better job of playing politics,” she said unconvincingly.
“Is that what you want to do?” I asked.
“Um, no,” she said.
“Ok, so you have one option. What other options do you have?”
