Part of the process of moving ahead when doing so has appeared challenging - is looking at why one is not already moving ahead.
There are various ways forwards for letting go of stuck attitudes, beliefs and ties to the past.
Things like NLP, CBT, meditation/mindfulness and yes - counselling ( although in rare occasions a psychotherapeutic intervention is the only thing that will really rebalance a badly listing career ship).
By far my own favourite and a technique I have used for over 25 years is "the Sedona Method"
The challenges of using this method include
However if someone is really serious about changing either the way they work or what they work at or how much work they do or where they do it - and have found this is more than a little challenging - starting off with some Sedona learning concurrent to some career guidance is in my view a winning combination.
As part of any Career Review it is possible for me to identify specific aspects of a persons career that are holding them back and thus are ideal for applying Sedona Method.
It is far from mandatory to try the method - but for anyone feeling badly "stuck" I think it is a very useful additional tool for career planning.
