Shannon Muruli returns to talk about the connection between the School of Courage, her new book, #DoItAfraid, and “fluid career.”
Fear can hold us back from getting what we what. We hide behind it, hoping someone notices us. And when we hide from others we are also hiding from ourselves and our potential. We aren’t allowing ourselves to shine.
It takes courage to take that next step and see your dreams come true. Sometimes courage doesn’t require making even a step – it can be showing up for a single meeting or speaking up in a meeting.
It can be scary to embrace the thought of a fluid career. I mean, we used to be told that we have stability if we stay at a company for 10+ years, but do we? Are we settling for monetary security while we are suppressing our own needs and desires? Choosing to stay in a box because it isn’t that scary and comfortable? No one likes to be uncomfortable. So what’s it like to take that leap? What’s it like to land somewhere else? Somewhere better?
We’ll be talking about:
- What it means to have courage and what that looks like. And if it’s ok to have courage and still be afraid.
- How to ignore to the naysayers and do what you believe is the right.
- How the next step doesn’t need to be a huge leap – it could be as simple as speaking up in a meeting to demonstrate what you know.
- How you may be holding yourself back.
- How to let go and let yourself shine – and not be afraid of that.
What’s a fluid career?
Dana Theus has been observing a new career trend – . The average tenure of a job for professionals is 3.5 years. This means that someone could have up to 10-12 jobs in a lifetime and possibly 2-3+ careers. It is freeing, in that it gives people more control to design more work-life balance in their career over time, and anxiety-producing as it can feel less stable if one defines success as “a job that lasts at least 10 years.” This fluid employment trend takes into account the growth in both entrepreneurship and the Gig Economy, reductions in employee tenure, increases in employee dissatisfaction and increases in employee turnover.
