The Workplace Therapist Show with Brandon Smith


It’s no secret that our careers look different at 50 than they do at 25. On Brandon’s podcast, I share tips for bulletproofing your career and the three factors you need to understand in order to face the new set of challenges you’re encountering in mid-career.

Brandon was taking a lot of notes as we went through my 5-step prescription for reinventing your career.

Top tip: Start doing your own personal “360” review before HR gets to you to do theirs! We all have to be much more proactive about defining the value we provide, and what we deliver in our work. The next step is going to be to cultivate a referral network of trusted allies and advisors to help us connect to the opportunities that are right for us.

Stop trying to fit yourself into jobs you _can_ do, and go for the ones you are _best_ at doing!
