Are you considering making a change in your career? At MarCan Coaching & Consulting we are here to help. Over the years, we have created a program that combines research with experience to help you through your own career reinvention journey.
This program involves applying our own GITAE Model to your unique situation. What does GITAE stand for anyway? You’re about to find out! Let’s take a deeper dive into each of these concepts, so you are better prepared to dive into your own career journey.
G – Grow
Leaving your career may feel like a step backwards or maybe just a pause in your career timeline. Regardless of the reasons behind this shift, this process can always be framed as a positive one.
It’s important to view this transition as an opportunity for growth in all aspects of your life. Career reinvention should represent personal growth, financing growth, and professional growth all at once. You should always be moving forward.
I – Improve
Throughout any period of change, it is always important to remember the skills and knowledge you have already acquired. Remember to take the skills you have learned and continue to improve upon them every single day. Even as you are making this switch, continue to hone your technical and personal skills along the way.
T – Transform
Change is difficult, and one of the most important things you can do to be successful is to avoid getting stuck in a routine. Whether you’re starting a different position in the same field or starting over in a new industry altogether, you’re transforming into a new version of yourself. Continuously become a better version of yourself and embrace this change in your life. Be comfortable with being uncomfortable.
A – Advance
Don’t mistake complacency for comfort; you should always be growing in every aspect of your life. So, what does that really mean? Mainly, it means to open yourself up to learning new things as you go through this transformative period of your life. The stress of a big change—like starting a new career—can often make you feel uncomfortable, lost and stagnant. Even through these big changes, always be looking forward. Again, be comfortable with being uncomfortable.
E – Enlighten
Finally, always be learning about yourself along the way. Your mindset at the beginning of this process may be completely different from how you feel at the end. This is where you develop a growth mindset; don’t be afraid of these changes or to veer away from your initial plan. Stay true to your values and in tune with your emotions, wants and needs as they evolve. This is the best way to stay true to yourself and your goals.
