Thoughts on ‘Quiet Quitting’

You may have seen the ‘quiet quitting‘ convo happening in the media right now. If you haven’t, ‘quiet quitting‘ is supposedly when employees passively-aggressively refuse to work longer hours or outside of their designated responsibilities. i.e. that doing your job, is some kind of silent rebellion.

Is it Time to Quit Your Job?

Working in IT, I’ve seen a LOT of resignations over the past twelve months. Certainly from my point of view, The Great Resignation is alive and well.  And being a career coach in that environment, means I’ve had a lot of conversations about do I stay or do I go? So I felt like it […]

Thoughts On Trusting Your Intuition

At the start of the year, I found myself contemplating a goal around shopping and my possessions. Considering implementing a one in, one out policy. Or a shopping ban for January. Or fix it February focusing on repairing things I already own. As I evaluated different options and tried to figure out what was best […]

Welcome to the New Year! How is it feeling so far? Hitting the ground running with clear goals or taking it a bit slower? I’m certainly easing my way into 2019 and feel better for it. The start of a new year provides an easy reminder to pause, reflect, reevaluate but the thirty first of December […]
