Sarah Ellis: Hello, I am Sarah. Helen Tupper: And I am Helen. Sarah Ellis: And that is the Squiggly Careers podcast.  Each week, we share concepts for motion and instruments to check out that we hope will enable you, and us, to navigate your Squiggly Profession with a bit extra confidence, readability and management. Helen Tupper: And in as we speak’s episode, we’ll be specializing in the subject of our newest article that we have written for Harvard Enterprise Overview, which is about Inventive Concepts to Overcome Profession Improvement Challenges.  And we thought within the episode as we speak, we would discuss a bit of bit about why we wrote that article, why we predict it is an vital subject for individuals proper now, after which we would go into the concepts for motion that we have shared, simply to carry them to life for you, in order that it’s kind of less difficult for you to consider the way you may apply this to you and your individual profession, and your individual profession improvement challenges. So, by way of why we wrote it, after we had been considering, we at all times do a little bit of scanning the place we’re like, “What looks like a extremely related subject to jot down about for individuals for the time being?” and we had been considering a bit of bit about challenges and confidence within the context of what is going on on on this planet proper now, and the problems which may create for individuals’s careers.  We did do a survey on LinkedIn and we mentioned, “Are you feeling kind of assured in your profession for the time being, in mild of among the stuff that is happening within the wider world of labor?” We obtained a overwhelming majority of individuals saying that they had been feeling a bit much less assured, so Sarah and I had been then excited about, “How can we assist individuals to take a bit extra management to beat among the constraints that is likely to be getting of their method, and make it simpler to take motion with their profession improvement?” and that was actually the beginning of the article that we have simply written. Sarah Ellis: We recognized 4 widespread profession challenges that we each skilled all the time.  I am undecided these profession challenges ever go away as such, I feel we simply discover sensible methods to search out our method via them, or to get untangled; and likewise, they’re undoubtedly issues that we hear in our workshops with all of the folks that we discuss to.  We’re clearly actually huge advocates and spend our days on profession improvement, however I am really at all times concerned with, typically it is the cynics, the people who find themselves like, “Is that this a waste of time?”  I at all times suppose that is actually attention-grabbing to know, “Why do you suppose that is a waste of time?”  Perhaps they’ve had unhealthy experiences or they’ve not discovered it helpful earlier than. Or simply when individuals are saying, “That is all actually good, Sarah, however…”  I am at all times actually concerned with what comes after the “however”, as a result of I feel that is virtually usually the crux of the challenges, the place if you happen to will help individuals with the buts, the primary half’s straightforward.  Once we’re all feeling like we have got time or we’re actually motivated and energised, profession improvement in all probability comes a bit extra naturally.  However that is, “How will we preserve it going, even when occasions are powerful?” So, these 4 challenges, we’re simply going to explain every of them, then we’ll maybe speaking in regards to the one which we’re experiencing for the time being, and you may in all probability expertise a couple of of those without delay as effectively.  So, there’s the “when” problem, and “when” challenges sound like, “I am going to get round to profession improvement after I’ve obtained the time”.  The profession danger with that is your improvement feels separate out of your day job.  I feel everyone will recognise this.  You already know the, “I simply need to end this venture, then I’ll spend a while on my profession”, or, “I am simply going to recover from this busy interval”, or, “Simply when life calms down a bit”.  All of us say these issues.  The issue with that’s I feel we’re at all times deprioritising our improvement.  It by no means finally ends up rising to the floor.  So, that is the “when” problem. Then you definitely’ve obtained the “who” problem.  That seems like, “I haven’t got anybody who’s serving to me to develop my abilities, or simply to assist me develop”.  The chance for our careers right here is that you simply really feel like your development depends on different individuals.  So once more, it feels out of our management.  Perhaps we really feel like we’re ready slightly than creating, by way of our profession improvement.  This could possibly be as a result of possibly you are in an organisation the place you do not really feel such as you’re getting the help you want; possibly you’ve got not obtained the perfect relationship along with your supervisor; possibly you hear individuals discuss this concept of issues like mentoring however you are like, “How do I get a kind of?”  Perhaps that simply does not really feel accessible for you.  So, that is extra about having the fitting individuals round you. Then you definitely’ve obtained the “what” problem, and that seems like, “I am undecided what to develop in”.  That is actually about feeling like, “Everybody talks about upskilling and reskilling, and all of us really feel like that is vital, however what do I really must study?”  The chance right here is that if we preserve trying to find one proper reply, it could possibly cease you from getting began, so the overwhelm will get in our method and it implies that we stall and get caught. Then the ultimate problem is a “the place” problem, and that seems like, “There are not any profession improvement alternatives the place I work”, or possibly, “There are not any profession improvement alternatives within the business that I work in”.  The chance right here is that you simply really feel actually annoyed and also you in all probability simply lose a little bit of motivation, you lose a little bit of your mojo alongside the best way. So, coach-yourself query simply to ask your self at this level is, “Which of those challenges feels most important for me for the time being?”  Perhaps there’s one right here that basically stands out for you, or possibly this looks like there’s a few constraints getting in your method.  So, Helen, the place would you be on these widespread profession challenges; any that stand out for you for the time being? Helen Tupper: I feel I might need spent 12 months with one problem and probably not being that conscious of it, till writing the article created a little bit of readability, and it is the “what” one for me so, “I am undecided what I need to develop in”.  In our end-of-year evaluation podcast, I used to be reflecting on stuff I might learnt this 12 months and I realised that in 2021, I did Yellow Studying.  That was a studying factor that I dedicated to and I actually loved, as a result of I did it with a small neighborhood of individuals and it was a pleasant quantity of studying for me to do and took my mind to a unique place. Then I realised, I’ve performed nothing like that in 2022.  I like being on a studying programme as a result of I discover that I formally match that into my working week, and I do it with different individuals, I get pleasure from assembly different individuals.  After which I used to be like, “Oh my gosh, I’ve gone via an entire 12 months and I’ve not performed that”, and I did not realise it in any respect.  I feel a part of the issue is I’ve gone, “I’d love to do one thing on behavioural science, or I’d love to do one thing on psychology, or I’d love to do one thing on design”, however you recognize that trying to find the one proper reply stopped me getting began?  That’s precisely the problem that I’ve confronted. So, because of one of many actions that we’re going to discuss via in a minute or two, I’m going to discover a little bit of focus and transfer that ahead and cease in search of the proper answer for the factor I need to study.  What about you? Sarah Ellis: Yeah, I actually recognise that too, that sense of virtually feeling like — I feel mine might need come a bit not from complacency, however from virtually having fun with what I do.  So I feel beforehand, I’ve maybe been in positions or in roles the place I’ve thought in regards to the strikes I might wish to make, after which that is created readability for me to suppose, “These abilities will likely be actually useful, as a result of I might wish to go and switch my skills into a unique staff” or, “I need to transfer right into a management position”, so I possibly may simply see that extra clearly.  Whereas now, I am doing the factor that I need to do, and I’ve virtually stopped the looking however not in a method that feels motivating.  So I feel for me, it has been the identical problem, however maybe for some completely different causes. I additionally actually recognise the “who” problem.  I feel I’ve been responsible of virtually considering, one of many issues I miss about working in huge organisations is sort of the number of folks that you find yourself spending time with.  Additionally, I am very fortunate that I’ve labored with some good individuals and been in some nice management groups.  And at occasions over the past 12 months, I feel I have been a bit like, “I actually miss these individuals”.  I really feel like possibly I’ve not fairly obtained the fitting individuals round me, however in a form of ready method; I am ready for these new individuals, and I recognise that these individuals are in all probability not the fitting folks that I would like round me for the time being by way of among the studying I need to do, however then I feel I simply hoped that they had been going to indicate up not directly and virtually be like, “Right here I’m that will help you along with your profession and your profession improvement”. So, in an summary method, I do know I need these individuals, however I’ve probably not performed something to make that occur.  After which, I’ve virtually obtained a bit annoyed that it hasn’t.  I’ve virtually been blaming imaginary individuals for not popping up into my life!  So really, that “who” one was fairly a confronting one for me.  I feel I’ve began to grasp I’ve undoubtedly fallen into that ready entice a bit. Helen Tupper: I really feel prefer it’s the alternative of manifesting!  You’ve got been blasting them away — Sarah Ellis: The anti-manifest! Helen Tupper: Yeah, the anti-manifest, “Why have you ever not proven up in my life?” slightly than creating this constructive atmosphere the place individuals need to come to you!  The waves of unfavourable power could make them keep away! Sarah Ellis: To be truthful, that’s how I really feel about manifesting, for anybody who’s listened to that podcast episode. Helen Tupper: That’s really one in every of my favorite issues that we recorded final 12 months, was that episode. Sarah Ellis: It was really a extremely enjoyable episode. Helen Tupper: It was a extremely enjoyable episode, getting Sarah to confront her cynicism round manifesting.  Hear again, everybody, pay attention again!  So, what we have got is 4 inventive methods that you would be able to unlock these 4 completely different challenges.  So, Sarah and I’ll discuss every one in every of them via and share the thought for motion that we predict will enable you. So, the primary one was that “when” problem.  So, in case your improvement problem is about when you are able to do these items, then we suggest that you simply begin with a five-minute me map.  And the purpose is to take a little-and-often strategy to your profession improvement, so it turns into a part of the best way that you simply’re working, slightly than one other huge factor that you have to do as we speak.  So, for the five-minute me map to work, we suggest that you simply create a recurring calendar invite to your self and also you give it that five-minute me map title, after which you are going to put your self in a spot the place there isn’t any distraction, so you are not testing your emails, you are not taking a look at Instagram, you are not listening to the Squiggly Careers podcast, or no matter else it is likely to be that you simply do; you are simply going to have a little bit of silence for you.  And through that 5 minutes, you are simply going to mind-map your ideas in response to a coach-yourself query. We have got an inventory of a great deal of coach-yourself questions on our web site on amazingif.com; there are 21 coach-yourself questions that we took from our e-book, You Coach You.  So, that might be beginning place.  You are going to have 21 various things to immediate your me map there.  However an instance of 1 can be one thing like, “What do you need to be true on the finish of 2023 that is not true as we speak?” after which you would simply map all of the completely different ideas that come to thoughts, only for 5 minutes.  It could enable you simply to suit a bit extra reflection into your day, and likewise determine some various things that you are able to do, however in a really deliberate and fast method, slightly than it feeling like this factor that you simply’re simply going to place off till you’ve got obtained the proper time. Sarah Ellis: Have you learnt what I have been excited about this one, and it is too late as a result of we have already written the article; however I feel construct, an unique for our podcast listeners is, I do know that when some individuals are writing for a residing, so their day job is writing, they’ll usually be part of writers’ boards, the place all of them get collectively on-line on the similar time to jot down however they don’t seem to be writing collectively, however they’re making a shared area the place it virtually lets you be purposeful about writing, which initially sound a bit like, “Properly, certainly you would do this by your self?”  However you recognize, there’s that accountability of doing it with different individuals. I’m wondering if we’ll make improvement by doing, you recognize that type of “we study by doing”, simply a part of how all of us work as a staff; if thrice every week as a staff you all had that very same 5 minutes, and it wasn’t simply an intention and it wasn’t a factor that obtained deprioritised since you out of the blue realised you’d not completed your presentation, however really you all obtained on-line collectively, actually if you happen to’re working in a hybrid method, otherwise you simply obtained in a room if you happen to’re all bodily collectively, and also you simply do 5 minutes and also you all do the identical coach-yourself query, after which that is it, you go and get a cup of tea otherwise you get on with the remainder of your day. I feel that might make fairly an enormous distinction for me by way of, I might present up, since you’d really feel that sense of, “It is a shared factor that we’re dedicated to”.  I can think about, even when I simply noticed it in my diary, I might discover it fairly straightforward to deprioritise it, as a result of I may see that e-mail had popped up, or one thing.  So, I like that as an additional construct.  You are still doing it about me, it is nonetheless your me map, however possibly you are doing that collectively, you are all rising your self-awareness.  Think about if you happen to did that, even twice every week as a staff, think about how a lot self-awareness and the way rather more reflection time you’ll have had versus what you usually have. Helen Tupper: So, you would do it in your staff, like you will have simply instructed, or alternatively there may be, and this is not pre-prepared, everyone, I remembered it when Sarah was speaking, however there’s one thing referred to as focusmate.com, which is a web site that you would be able to go on.  You get three free periods every week, and also you mainly discover form of an accountability associate. So, for example I used to be going to my me map at 9.00 on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I might discover a focus mate on that web site who needed to commit a little bit of time; they do not need to do the identical factor as me, however they’re committing to an exercise concurrently me, and it is virtually like this accountability associate that you do not actually need to know them or discuss to them, it would assist match you to that particular person, however there’s one thing psychological as having somebody exhibiting up concurrently you to work on one thing that they need to do that may enable you possibly get dedicated to that motion. Sarah Ellis: So, thought quantity two is expounded to in case your profession improvement problem is “who”, so that is the one which I described I might possibly been responsible of simply hoping this was going to occur.  And the thought right here is about rising your sideways help.  So, not hoping these individuals are going to look, however really considering, what’s it that you simply need to study and who else may need to study that very same factor as you; who else might need those self same improvement wants, improvement priorities?  That is likely to be in your organisation, that is likely to be inside your business, or that simply is likely to be on this planet; you may set your individual context in a method that feels helpful for you. So, if I used to be going to do that, for instance, as a result of I used to be actually difficult myself to suppose, “Okay, practise what we preach, what would this appear to be for me?” one of many issues I am actually concerned with is this concept of excellent progress, of being purposeful as an organisation, so having the ability to mix objective, planet, individuals and revenue; so, all of these Ps that really feel crucial.  I see that pretty much as good progress, that is the place you are contributing in a extremely constructive method as an organisation.  So, I would love to create some connections with different individuals who really feel that very same sense of, “Oh yeah, that is what I am making an attempt to do”. I feel we’re a mission-led organisation at Wonderful If, we have got a really clear mission to make careers higher for everybody, so I may suppose, “Okay, I am simply going to place it on the market”.  I may do it on one thing like — going inside Wonderful If would not be proper for me, as a result of we’re too small.  It isn’t like after I labored in huge organisations, the place I may have in all probability performed this form of factor internally.  So, possibly I might put it on some WhatsApp teams that I am already a part of to say, “I’ll arrange a extremely small group of about ten people who find themselves all concerned with … does anybody fancy becoming a member of?”  I may put it on one thing like LinkedIn, I may join it to some networks I am already a part of.  And I might at all times preserve it actually small. I may think about myself even saying one thing like, “I am simply in search of ten individuals who can be concerned with becoming a member of an internet group and possibly getting collectively nearly as soon as a month to speak about, ‘How do you mix all of these 4 Ps in a method the place you may lead and develop a mission-based organisation?'” and hopefully then individuals gravitate in the direction of you, as a result of they really feel that shared sense of objective.  And I feel you may then begin in a very easy method.  I feel these issues can really feel a bit intimidating, since you may suppose, “I need to study that factor, so I do not know that factor but”, however you may simply ask everyone, what’s one factor they’ve learn; what’s your listen-to that they’ve discovered useful up to now.  You might ask who they admire, who do they suppose are doing a extremely good job in that space. Then I feel you may encourage new concepts and new stimulus into that group by saying to everyone, possibly after you’ve got met two or thrice, you give everybody the choice to ask yet one more particular person to affix.  I feel so long as you’ve got obtained a super-clear objective, so long as you’ve got been actually clear about what you are hoping to study, then it makes your ask very particular, so individuals will be capable to simply decide in or decide out, as a result of they will both suppose, “That is for me [or] that is not for me”. So, I might in all probability, whilst I am describing it to you now, I might in all probability be actually clear about, “I am seeking to join with people who find themselves founders of organisations, so individuals who’ve began issues from scratch, who’re rising a purpose-led enterprise and need to study from one another, and are very comfortable to share and borrow brilliance”.  And I believe if I put that in a couple of teams that I am a part of and put that on LinkedIn, I might hope that some individuals may put their palms up and go, “Oh, yeah, I am concerned with that too”. Helen Tupper: It jogs my memory plenty of the Authors Nameless WhatsApp group that we’re in, Sarah, which is unquestionably a sideways help group.  So, that may be a group not arrange by us, however from someone who in all probability had the identical type of intuition and thought some time in the past, for a neighborhood of people that had been all engaged on an identical factor, writing a e-book, however who did not individually have all of the solutions.  That has been an incredible sideways help group, as a result of I feel there’s plenty of generosity in these types of teams and there is various openness and a bit of little bit of vulnerability as effectively. It is only a very, very completely different help atmosphere than I might get from someone that I might think about my go-to guru, you recognize if you are going to somebody who’s, like in that instance, somebody who’s printed a number of books and is an skilled in that space; I possibly would not be as susceptible with that particular person, and there possibly would not be fairly the identical stage of generosity and sharing that there’s within the sideways help group.  So, they’re actually highly effective, whether or not you be part of one which exists, or create one for your self. So, the third problem was that “what” problem, which is the one which I mentioned is my precedence to repair a bit of bit.  So, in case your profession improvement problem is “what”, then what we suggest is you create your studying navigator, and that is what I’ll do for myself in order that I can discover my focus for this 12 months with my studying.  What this lets you do is have a look at your studying from two completely different dimensions.  The primary is all about information and the second is about abilities, and it is a matrix, everyone, so we’ll be certain we — Sarah Ellis: We have not really had a matrix for some time, have we? Helen Tupper: No, we have not! Sarah Ellis: The matrix is again! Helen Tupper: The matrix is again, and it is again within the article too.  Our matrix has been included in Harvard Enterprise Overview’s matrix financial institution; it is very thrilling! Sarah Ellis: I really feel like that’s actually solely thrilling for us, however we’re very enthusiastic about it! Helen Tupper: That is the form of factor like, our matrix has made it, in my thoughts!  So, the best way that this matrix works is on the information, we would like you to consider what is the information that is related in your position as we speak.  So for me, for instance, information that is related for my position as we speak is issues that, I imply there’s some industrial stuff that I must do, there’s some administration that I must do, there’s some enterprise operations that is actually helpful information for my position as we speak.  After which, what’s information that is vital in your future?  So, if I used to be to consider the place my profession may go and the way I may develop, and completely different potentialities that I am concerned with, which may take me to a unique place, by way of the information that I’d need subsequent for me and my future.  So, that is one dimension; information, now and subsequent. Then the opposite dimension is about abilities, abilities that you simply want, so abilities which are important for what you do as we speak.  In order that is likely to be, I do not know, that is likely to be negotiation, it is likely to be management, there is likely to be some technical abilities that you actually need to do what you do.  After which, the talents which are good, so issues that you simply possibly having fun with doing a bit extra, such as you suppose, “These abilities are vital and I like doing them”, possibly like storytelling; or for me, design considering.  I do not want design considering for my job, however I do actually get pleasure from studying about it, I get pleasure from studying about innovation practices and I get pleasure from studying about how completely different know-how platforms all work collectively.  However that is a pleasant factor for me to study. What you do is you plot your studying on the matrix throughout these 4 completely different dimensions, and it helps you simply take your mind to a unique place, by way of what the educational may appear to be, after which create a studying purpose for every of these areas.  So, what’s information that you simply want and what abilities are good, for instance, what would fall into that field?  And, what’s one thing that you simply may want for what you are going to do sooner or later?  While you do that, what you will find yourself with really is 4 completely different studying objectives, however these 4 completely different studying objectives have gotten completely different focus for you and your profession.  And it isn’t that one is any extra vital than another, it is simply making an attempt that will help you to consider you and your profession, what you get pleasure from, the place you are actually and the place you are going, and what’s a studying purpose that might help you. Sarah Ellis: What I feel is sweet in regards to the studying navigator is the vary of objectives that it provides you.  It lets you stability brief and long run, it lets you stability doing an excellent job of the place you might be as we speak, while investing in your future and the strikes you may need to make by way of development and what which may appear to be for you.  And although 4 studying objectives can sound like loads, these studying objectives could possibly be fairly small. So, one that we have in abilities which are good to have and information that you simply may use now, is round storytelling.  So, a studying purpose on storytelling, for instance, could possibly be to learn, watch and listening to one thing on storytelling each week, and to share that when a month along with your staff, to share some insights along with your staff.  So, it may be one thing so simple as that, or it could possibly be rather more vital, about main a brand new venture, or possibly it is about getting a mentor in sure areas.  So, I feel although having 4 objectives may sound a bit of bit overwhelming, the dimensions of these objectives might be fairly completely different. So, closing one, in case your improvement problem is “the place”, so that is you considering, “I really feel like there isn’t any improvement alternatives the place I’m”, that is the traditional one in every of, “I really feel caught, there’s nowhere to go, it looks like there’s plenty of limitations which are exterior of my management”, our thought for motion right here is about prototyping your development.  The purpose right here is to unlock new concepts and choices once you really feel possibly the apparent solution to develop is not an choice.  That is usually once you do find yourself feeling a bit like, “It is a bit demotivating, as a result of I do understand how I might wish to develop”, so possibly you do know your “what”, however it’s not potential right here. Lets say, for instance, you need a coaching qualification and your organization have mentioned, “No, we won’t afford to fund that”; or, you want a promotion, you went for that promotion and also you did not get that promotion.  So, you are feeling such as you’ve performed one thing, however it’s not fairly labored out.  What prototyping lets you do is to virtually embrace that, embrace the place you might be, and see what else and the place else may you develop.  If you consider each what you need to do, by way of your development, but additionally why that is vital for you, we at all times discover that is what unlocks the prototyping. So, simply to provide you a extremely particular instance, as a result of I feel that is how this brings this to life in one of the best ways, if what you want to do is lead a staff for the primary time, if my “what” by way of development was, “I might like to guide a staff for the primary time”, if we soar straight to the “how”, we get to, “Apply for a job”, and we both get it or we do not.  If, earlier than we get to “how”, we go to the “why”, “Why would you want to guide a staff for the primary time?” I’d then say, “As a result of really I’ve began to grasp that I actually benefit from the alternative to develop different individuals, or to help individuals with their profession”. If that’s your “why” and that is your jumping-off level then to get to your “hows”, in fact one of many ways in which you would do that’s probably to get a promotion; however you would additionally provide to help individuals becoming a member of your organisation for the primary 100 days of their new position; you would provide to mentor individuals of their early careers; you would provide to help staff improvement for the remainder of your staff; you would put your self ahead for a lead for a brand new venture the place you recognize possibly you are going to have extra cross-functional tasks, so that you’re managing and growing individuals via affect, slightly than possibly direct administration. Typically what’s attention-grabbing is, once you begin to prototype development, plenty of these “hows” that you simply give you, you’ll have a lot, rather more management over.  So, plenty of these concepts that you’re going to generate, you can make these issues occur; there will be much less limitations to you having the ability to transfer ahead; and even higher, what we at all times discover is that when individuals begin to get actually good at this, then the probability of possibly their final final result that they are aiming for occurring additionally will increase, as a result of if you happen to’re investing in your improvement, doing all this actually great things round growing individuals as a result of that is what’s actually vital to you, typically even higher alternatives may come your method. My one high tip on prototyping development is, particularly in case you are feeling a bit caught, if you will discover somebody to do that with, I feel usually it could possibly simply help your considering, as a result of it is virtually a bit like doing a mini brainstorm however for you in your profession improvement.  So, possibly it is a work greatest pal, possibly it is somebody you’ve got labored with beforehand that you simply obtained on rather well with, and also you might need give you a few concepts.  However after I do that train loads in workshops, I’ll usually ask everybody in a workshop to prototype a form of development possibly the place somebody feels caught; possibly they need to work a four-day week however they don’t seem to be capable of for some cause; possibly they cannot get the cash they want for coaching. I ask everyone to do all the “hows” and it is virtually like everyone seems to be smarter than one in every of us; it is that philosophy of, if you happen to can contain and embody plenty of individuals in prototyping your development, you will simply get extra concepts, and you will additionally get in all probability extra goal concepts, as a result of these individuals are not fairly as near it, and also you might need put up some blockers and a few limitations as a result of one thing’s felt arduous for you, whereas somebody with a little bit of distance may say, “Have you considered this?” or, “What about that?” and you then really suppose, “Oh, yeah, that’s a good suggestion.  I may go away and do this volunteering; I may ask that particular person for some help”. Helen Tupper: I feel it normalises discussions about improvement as effectively, as a result of it is usually this factor that you simply’re presupposed to do along with your supervisor, if you happen to’re being fairly ladderlike about stuff.  However really, once you’re in a Squiggly Profession, the extra you may talk about this with different individuals, I feel the extra potentialities you create.  And simply doing this with different individuals simply makes it simpler, it makes it simpler to say, “I want to do one thing completely different, and what may that appear to be?” and, “Who have you learnt and the way may I get there?” and curate plenty of different individuals’s enter into that, slightly than feeling like you must be depending on one particular person.  So, I feel it actually helps with simply making a extra open dialog about profession improvement too. Sarah Ellis: So, we hope you discovered this a helpful episode.  When you’ve additionally had an opportunity to learn the HBR article, we might at all times like to know your suggestions.  What’s working effectively for you about these articles; any even higher ifs?  Additionally, concepts for matters that you simply’d actually like us to cowl, whether or not that is podcast episodes you need to take heed to, or articles that you simply would love us to jot down.  We at all times actually love listening to from you, that is how we be sure that we keep related and we keep useful with every part that we’re creating. Helen Tupper: And within the PodSheet that can accompany this episode, what we’ll do is we’ll put the hyperlinks to the opposite Harvard Enterprise Overview articles that we have written, simply in case you have not learn them or you do not know the place to search out them.  So, we have got issues on studying extra at work, the way you make that a part of your on a regular basis; how one can coach your self; how one can reimagine retention; and clearly, there’s the most recent article too.  So, if any of these matters are attention-grabbing, we’ll be sure that it is easy so that you can entry. However thanks a lot for listening as we speak and we will likely be again once more quickly with one other episode of the Squiggly Careers podcast. Sarah Ellis: Thanks, everyone.  Bye for now.
