“I don’t know what I want to do!”

Carer.2

“If you don’t know where you want to be in five years, you’re already there!” Elizabeth Gilbert

 

“When my daughter graduated from college years ago, she was uncertain what she wanted to do.  She had worked in an office and a restaurant. Now, she was looking for a career, not a job.

Due to her initiative and her conversations with me, I referred her to Jeannette Seibly, SeibCo. (Jeannette had been helping my company with hiring and management concerns for several years.)

In less than a month of working with Jeannette, she was ready! She had clarity of what she wanted to do, would be good at and the type of companies to look for. Armed with all this information and coaching, she chose a position in sales. Because of her career preparation, she only considered companies that provided training that fit her interests.

It’s now 11 years later and she has worked in three different sales positions in two different industries. She has earned a six figure income for many of those years and has always been one of the top two performers in each company.

Because she took the time to clarify her career direction and utilized the right tools, she had the information she needed to get on the right career path for her – and, she’s had a very successful career. Jeannette customized the process for my daughter — worth every penny.  My daughter’s initiative has paid her (and me) back 1,000 fold.”   DP, Executive and Very Happy Mother

Many employees today are unhappy and dissatisfied with their careers, work responsibilities and job prospects. Statistically, about 63 to 79 percent are in the wrong job, career, industry, profession, company, etc. Yet, many fail to take the time, expend the energy and make the investment to find the right career path that fits them for the long term. They believe in the myth that there is a right time to find the right career path; and it will happen … someday … in the future. Or, they are waiting for their employer, parents or others to provide that information to them. The problem is, it never happens without taking the initiative and doing the right things for ourselves.

Can you make six-figures in sales?

Sales.5

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, if it’s the right career for you.

According to a Glassdoor Blog, some of the highest paying jobs are in sales!

Sales people are the backbone of any company — they are instrumental in making or breaking the success of any product and service the company provides. However, before you fly onto the job boards to find a job in sales, conduct a critical analysis of your thinking style, core behaviors and occupational interests by using a qualified career fitness assessment*. Know upfront, and objectively, whether or not you have what it takes to sell and the type of company that will help you succeed. Remember, many sales people fail to achieve 6-figure incomes due to poor job fit and the unwillingness to develop the discipline required.

How do you find the right job for you in sales?

Step 1: Determine if sales is the right career path for you. Are you able to “sell” by “closing a sale” on a consistent basis? Do you possess similar traits that highly successful sales people have? This can only be ascertained by using a qualified career fitness assessment* and looking at your past sales metrics.

Step 2: Find the right type of sales position. There is a BIG difference between handling incoming orders vs. finding sales opportunities through cold calling and networking contacts. Don’t forget to investigate customer service, marketing and account executive/manager type jobs that may provide better job fit and are normally paid hourly or salary plus commission. Be sure you have the required interests in the product or services, willingness to learn the company systems, excellent people skills and discipline to consistently network. Success in these jobs requires lots of patience, follow-up and follow-through when answering questions, educating customers, and resolving system/product/service issues.

Step 3. Armed with your career fit information, research the industry, company’s culture, and types of products/services offered. Clarity, based upon feedback from your career fit assessment*, will let you know if you have the level of competitiveness, tact and team attitude required. Also, determine if the pay structure (e.g., straight commission vs. base + commission; and, type of bonuses and other perks) works for you. If you are risk-adverse, be sure the base is bigger than the potential commission.

Step 4. Know the company’s hiring practices. Beware that many companies do a poor job of hiring anyone, particularly in sales. Too often hiring managers rely on the candidates’ ability to sell themselves, tell them what they want to hear, and look the part! Being offered the job does not guarantee a six-figure income. You may or may not fit the culture or job requirements.

To increase the probability of succeeding if you are hired, spend time networking for insider information (not found on the Internet) before the interview and conduct your due diligence during the interview(s) by preparing good questions. (For help, read Chapter 12 in the book, It’s Time to Brag! Career Edition, http://Time2Brag.com) Remember to ask about training programs and on-going coaching to help you develop your skills in lead generation, relationship building, prospecting, and closing techniques. If the job is offered, be willing to say, “No, thank you.” if it doesn’t appear to be a good career fit for you. Be honest – taking the job and losing it makes it harder to find the next one.

Ask yourself the most important question.

Do I want a job and career where I will be happy and satisfied? If the answer is yes, studies have shown that you are more likely to be happier and more satisfied when your job responsibilities fit you. The truth is, many times sales people job hop, or are laid off because they were unable to meet monthly or quarterly quotas, or due to territory or company restructuring. Finding the right career (whether or not in sales) will provide greater financial rewards in the long-run. There are no short-cuts to getting rich quickly. Expect to put in the time, learn the company, industry, product/service, and develop long-term relationships regardless of the job.

Does the quality of your presentations elicit the best?

Facilitation.4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s critical for leaders (and those aspiring to be leaders) to learn the skills required to conduct high quality presentations and facilitate well-run meetings. It not only reflects on you professionally, it also builds a positive reputation for your company, department and team. Developing the right skills helps you attract clients and team members that want to work with you, receive promotions and pay increases, and build new career opportunities. One of the most important indicators of professional success (regardless of your occupation) is your ability to speak, listen and share the spotlight in a way that elicits the best from others.

Practice the right things, the right way.

Developing excellent skills takes consistent practice of the right things, the right way. For example, continuing to practice the piano playing the wrong notes, will not improve your ability to play the right notes when it counts – at a recital or in a competition. While learning presentation and facilitation styles may not seem important when you are young or in your current profession, consider taking the time now so you don’t miss golden opportunities to accelerate your leadership growth.

4 Key Behaviors that Make a Difference

Practice is required for all endeavors, and developing excellent presentation and facilitation skills is required in many jobs. When preparing for a presentation, write down an outline of the key points and practice in front of a mirror. Ask for feedback from others, before and after the program. Winging it usually means you don’t understand the importance of engaging an audience — remember you may not get a second chance to cause a favorable impression, win the contract or resolve a company issue.

Discipline is created by following a structure that works and by scheduling repetitive practice, on a consistent basis. Attending Toastmasters is one example. It provides the opportunity to learn and practice the right skills – it also teaches proper etiquette for managing the stage, room, podium, handouts, seating, mic, etc. Developing a style that works for you and engages everyone in your audience is the ultimate goal.

Coach-ability is very important. Thinking you know-it-all (so you don’t have to practice or listen to others’ suggestions) will quickly impede your progress. Welcome the feedback from others and consider it valuable. Hire a coach, attend a workshop, and ask your boss or co-worker to critique you –you’ll be surprised by the progress you make by being coachable.

Learn from your mistakes. Shake it off when you make a mistake, apologize if needed and move on. Most people won’t even know you made a mistake – however, there will be some mistakes that are not as easily overlooked (e.g., using a four-letter word, gossiping, etc.). After your presentation or meeting, take time to identify two areas of improvement with your coach. Don’t forget to solicit feedback from the organizer of the event, by asking “What worked?” and “What didn’t work or could have been better?” When conducting training programs, written evaluations can be helpful to ensure the main points and concerns were addressed. Remember, one bad review doesn’t mean you did a bad job! However, pay attention when you have had several similar comments.

Again, as a leader, it’s up to you to elicit the best from your audiences — employees, industry professionals and others. It requires disciplined practice, coach-ability and learning from your mistakes in order to conduct well-received presentations and facilitate well-run meetings.

Career fit can save you from unmanageable debt

debt-free-challenge-gamification-level-2-certification-3-638

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Forbes, “… applying for graduate school just because you’re unemployed or don’t know what you want to do with your life is a terrible idea.” Yet, many unemployed millennials (and older unemployed people too) take out additional loans for advanced degrees, accumulating $100,000+ in debt, and often, in a profession they don’t really like and it doesn’t fit them.

Taking this route can actually make debt unmanageable since it is often impossible to find work that allows you to easily repay the debt. Often times, you stay stuck and are unable to take advantage of future opportunities since you will feel the need to play it safe and stay in positions you don’t enjoy, or thrive in, just to pay back the money.

Take a strategic, proactive approach.

If you believe you will want, or need, an advanced degree, get a job in your chosen profession and take classes at night or on the weekend. Many employers today are providing continuing education as a benefit to attract great employees.

However, FIRST, get clear about your career direction. Too often you will pick the wrong career based upon factors that may appear to be interesting to you or were recommended by someone you know and trust. (See article, Avoid the Career Mistakes that People Regret, http://wp.me/p2POui-Ui.) As many studies have shown (one is from Harvard Business Review), when you fit your work responsibilities, you will have more successful and financially rewarding jobs and careers.

Get career fit.

Grey hair does matter — Uncertain about what to do next?

Many baby boomers are retiring and are uncertain about what they want to do next. Many know they need to keep working and have a wealth of experience to share. They believe their options are either part-time to give them something to do, or full-time to fund their retirement accounts. Even though these grey-heads are well-qualified and experienced, many companies don’t recognize the value and skills they can provide. The bottom line is grey-haired people still have a lot to contribute to an organization and need to get their brag on!

The challenge: How do people find work and job options that fit them? Studies show that when people have the interests, core behaviors and thinking styles that fit their jobs, they are much more likely to succeed in their first, second or third careers!

If you want respect, you need to respect others …

… the problem is, too often we don’t. As human beings, we’re habitually righteous about our opinions, thoughts and feelings and falsely believe others should adjust their opinions, thoughts and feelings to accommodate us! And many times, we don’t even know we’re doing it.

It starts with awareness …

A serial entrepreneur was having trouble selling anything! She would ask others to call her to setup meetings. When they did, she did not return their calls and did not follow-up with promised information. (This is not how one shows respect.) After she took a qualified assessment, we found she had difficultly accommodating others and following any type of system. Although she didn’t intend to be disrespectful, her lack of awareness conveyed to people that they were unimportant to her. (This was not how she truly felt about people.) Once she learned effective methods of streamlining and handling the details, she started selling, closing and making money!

Awareness is the first step …. then, taking appropriate actions.

What is respect? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, in short, a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important and should be treated in an appropriate way.

6 Key Respect Factors: 

    1. Honor your word. When you say that you’ll get something done, do it. Stop relying on excuses to justify your lack of follow-up and follow-through. Even better, take the opportunity to meet and exceed expectations.
    2. Return all calls and emails. You are not so important that you do not need to return calls or emails! Although, you may rely upon the excuse, “I’m too busy,” not only are you disrespecting your customers, vendors and suppliers, you will not earn their respect.
    3. Compassion and acceptance. Most people will not complete a project, handle an interaction, or facilitate a group the way you would. Stop being overly critical and instead develop compassion for their efforts (flaws and all) and accept your own less than perfect abilities.
    4. Listen and be present. Hearing the words is not listening. As a result, a few minutes can turn into hours when you don’t to respect the speaker (this usually happens when you’re attempting to multi-task). Be 100% present in your conversations.

One man loved to talk on his phone and drive. Yet he couldn’t understand why people stopped talking with him! He would often forget critical aspects of the conversation, expect them to be his personal assistant, and would lie about anything he had forgotten to do. The reality is, you will forget more than 50% of the conversation when you are attempting to multi-task – it reduces your effectiveness.

5. Appreciate others and their time. We need others in this life in order for us to become successful leaders, business contributors, etc. Acknowledge their efforts and remember to say the magic words, ‘thank you’ and ‘please.’

6.  Respect yourself. Stay away from gossip – it creates mischief. It will become your karma if you choose to repeat it, or rely upon it!

Remember, being aware and taking appropriate actions show others that you respect them. When you respect others, they will respect you!

What do I really want to do for a job?

 

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’

‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.

‘I don’t much care where -‘ said Alice.

‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.

‘- so long as I get SOMEWHERE,’ Alice added as an explanation.

‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.”             

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Many remember this story from the book, Alice in Wonderland. Unfortunately, even when people “walk long enough,” looking for the right job – they still don’t find careers that make them happy, productive and successful. Why? We base our career or job choices on lack of information or misinformation and fail to do what we need to do to get somewhere we want to go.

Example: A young woman graduated from college with a degree in architecture. She declared that as her major because a copy of Architectural Digest was on the table, next to her chair, in the counselor’s office. She graduated and quickly found work. She loved the paycheck and hated the job! After many unfortunate attempts to find a job she enjoyed, she called me, her coach. By working together and using the appropriate tools, very quickly, she found out she wanted to be a math teacher. She had resisted this career path since her dad had suggested she pursue being a math teacher! (Parents are not always right – but, they are not always wrong either!) She did the work to get a teaching certificate and has been an exceptional math teacher because she loves what she does!

The reality is 63 to 79 percent of employees are in jobs that don’t fit them! They feel trapped and their productivity, job satisfaction and upward career mobility are limited. The truth? We don’t develop the practice or discipline to use the current job as a stepping stone. Instead, we hate what we do and fail to learn the basics required to succeed in any profession.

Your career path does matter! Find work and job options that interest you. Studies show that if you have the interests, core behaviors and thinking styles that fit, you are much more likely to succeed!

Still uncertain what you want to be when you grow up?

A woman graduated from college uncertain about what she wanted to do for a career. While she thought about it, she decided to work for a family member in his business. After several years, she didn’t like the work, still didn’t know what she wanted to do, and wanted to find her own way in life. After we worked together, she found that her passions and core personality qualities would make her a great salesperson. So, she left her current job, moved to the city where she always wanted to live, and got a job selling! She happily loves her job and makes a six-figure income as the top sales rep.

The reality is 63 to 79 percent of employees are in jobs that don’t fit them! So, you are not alone in feeling you don’t know what you want to do.

8 Requirements to Be a Successful Professional!

As you advance in your career, or climb up the corporate ladder, it’s important to learn to be open to new ideas and people. Unfortunately, we love to judge others, often too quickly and negatively. As a result, we lose our effectiveness and close the doors to new opportunities.

Success is an inside job and requires improving your people skills. Developing these skills takes time, practice and discipline, and will enable you to work with and through others to achieve your goals, develop an amazing team, become competitive, and improve your company’s bottom line.

8 Key Requirements:

  1. Do what you say you’ll do on time and as promised. Apologize when you “drop the ball.” Then, adjust your attitude and systems to ensure you’re not continually “dropping the ball.”
  2. Develop the discipline to do the right things the right way. Remember, your decisions will impact today’s situation — and tomorrow’s too.
  3. Get to know what is of interest and/or concern to your customers, internal and external. (This includes your boss and Board of Directors!)
  4. Learn to listen to new ideas and new ways of achieving results.Great ideas can “erupt” from anyone, at any time – if you’re open to hearing them!
  5. Respect everyone on the team regardless of his/her opinions and/or personality. Stop negatively judging others because of how they speak, how they present their ideas or how they disagree with you. Everyone can be a contribution to your success, if you’re open to learning from them and value their input.
  6. Acknowledge others for their time, efforts and contributions. Make it a practice to say “Please” & “Thank You.” (A disappearing courtesy that needs to be revived.)
  7. Keep confidences. (Hint: Sharing secrets and gossiping are two of the fastest ways to sabotage your career.)
  8. Forgiveness. Take the time to forgive others, and, more importantly, yourself. Learn from your mistakes and theirs too! Success is an on-going process, not a one-time event.

Successful people have learned these 8 key requirements, and use them to advance professionally.

Stop wishing for millions and get a job you love!

Many wish daily to become a millionaire, be wealthy and live a life of freedom — freedom from stress, strife and bills. Yet, most do nothing that will put them onto the right career path and increase the probability of achieving that lifestyle.

However, there is some additional bad news. There are many millionaires experiencing a lot of stress. So, stress isn’t going to go away. Same with strife and having bills that need to be paid.

The key to wealth? Find a job you love. Feeling wealthy is an inside job! Many times it will attract the financial freedom you crave, even if it’s not a million dollars in the bank!

Years ago I met a CFO that didn’t have any interest in financial management. Yet, he believed it would make him more money than his true interest in mechanics. His comment, “Find me a job as a mechanic that pays as well and I’ll take it.” The irony? Many good mechanics (aka ones that love their work) were making more money than he was!

The cold, hard reality is 63 to 79 percent of employees are in jobs that don’t fit them! When you are working in a job that doesn’t fit you, often, you will feel trapped. Your productivity, job satisfaction and upward career mobility are limited. You don’t develop the discipline or take consistent focused actions that will bring you success. You develop mediocre skills, fail to learn the basics required to succeed, and make a terrible boss (unfortunately, most companies reward their employees with promotions and increases in their paychecks – regardless of whether or not they fit the job)!

So, you are not alone in feeling you don’t know what to do to make more money. However, working in a job you hate usually will not bring it to you! There are many myths about becoming rich as a realtor, investor, financial planner, or in other potentially high-paying professions. Becoming rich can happen when people are good at those jobs, fit them and authentically love what they do!

This never-ending cycle continues until you wake up and get a job you truly enjoy. Or, you get fired and have to find another one. (Unfortunately, most don’t look at this event as a blessing and an opportunity to find the right job. Instead, they look for a job just like their last one! The cycle starts over again!)

Studies show (yes, one is from Harvard Business Review!) that if you have the interest, core behavior and thinking style that fit your job responsibilities, company and culture, you are much more likely to succeed!
