Check out my interview with Jim Rembach’s FastLeader podcast. Jim is building a great resource on leadership and management skills across many disciplines and points of view. When discussing career change, I think it’s important to ease people’s anxieties about the process. It is, of course, a very delicate proposition, particularly for people who have spent many years in one or two positions.
It’s interesting that Jim chose to title this interview “We Didn’t See This Coming…” as it does underscore the sense of shock and dislocation that I think a lot of us feel as we approach traditional retirement age.
Dealing with uncertainty is a process not unlike physical exercise: I think we get better at it the more we have to engage with it.
Please share your comments! It’s an honor to be included in Jim’s group!
