How Marian Got Unstuck

The Challenge

Four years ago, Marian took a risk when she left the traditional career path and accepted a job that offered her opportunities to tap into her passion for creative collaboration and community building. 

 

Exciting at first, the realities of the organization’s culture, wrought with leaders in conflict, siloed departments, and politically charged infighting for resources left her depleted and defensive. She felt isolated and anxious. 

Many others would have quit very early into these unpleasant discoveries. Admittedly stubborn, Marian stayed and tried her best to make her “dream job” work, but to no avail. 

 

She knew she had to make a change but had lost confidence in her ability to assess opportunities and to articulate the impact she wanted to have through her work.​ Marian was stuck.

The Solution

TAI designed a solution to support Marian in a process of self-discovery that emboldened her to step into who she really was, instead of who she thought she was supposed to be, reconnecting Marian with the essential elements of who she is that she longed to express through her work. Through this process, Marian: 

 

  • learned to articulate her personal mandates, what she must experience to feel whole, energized and centered

  • gained clarity about what matters about the work she does, and what gives it personal meaning

  • defined what she needed around her to be able to perform at her best

  • obtained valuable insights about what she needs in the content and context of her work, her work relationships, and her work culture.

The Result

Marian’s confidence and clarity grew as she got specific about what she was and was not willing to negotiate. 

She completely reshaped her mindset in the job search and interview process, moving from a hopeful candidate to a sought-after professional.

She asked as many questions as she was asked, investigating each opportunity with curiosity and purpose.

Marian recently accepted a new role at a prestigious company with the certainty that her colleagues, her circumstances, and her newly defined mandates will allow her to bring her whole self to the work. Whatever comes next, she's now firmly in the driver's seat in her life and career.
