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!

Have you been sidelined?

Many times executives and key players are sidelined and no one has told them about it! It can be devastating to learn you were not invited to an important meeting or are no longer included in making important decisions. It can be hurtful when coworkers and employees avoid you and refuse to buy in to your ideas or plans.

First, talk with your boss and find out what happened. Be willing to apologize for any misunderstandings or inappropriate comments you may have made. Even though it can be difficult to hear the truth, you cannot fix what you don’t know for a fact. If your boss doesn’t know why you are being sidelined or is unwilling to get involved in rectifying the situation, insist nicely that you need to know what happened. Remember, it won’t help you keep your job if you burn a bridge!

Next, hire a coach immediately to determine what can be done to salvage your job, reputation, and paycheck.

Third, set aside your denial and take action now. Urgency is the key! The longer this situation goes on, the less likely it can be turned around. Yes, it is your responsibility to make the needed changes, determine what needs to be done for the company and boss, and seek the resources required to make the necessary changes!

Take Your Dreams Off Hold

There will always be economic highs and lows, jobs and bosses we don’t like, and life circumstances we allow to stymie us. We believe it is just the way life is. To further complicate and prevent us from taking charge of our careers, we employ worn-out excuses of not having enough time or money, being afraid of failure or even of success. Yet none of these excuses and thought processes will move you forward to achieve your aspirations in life.  It’s time to take your dreams off hold!

First, embrace the fear! Now, blast through it by identifying and handling the most pressing issue keeping you from your dream (for example, if you need money: find additional income; if you need child care: trade services with other mothers; if you need a different job: talk with your human resource department). Second, clarify in writing what you really, really, really want, establish a short-term goal, and now create a focused action plan.  Run it by others to ensure it will produce the intended results.  Third, find or develop a group of like-minded people (family, friends, or boss) to keep you on task and provide time- and money-saving ideas. Hire a coach to keep you focused on the right things and moving forward if you are pursuing a business venture. (http://seibco.com/contact/)
