Episode 243: Asking For What You Want In Your Career Without Guilt

Asking For What You Want In Your Career Without Guilt

In this episode

In today’s episode of the Career Change Maker podcast, I’m talking about the sensitive yet empowering topic of asking for what you want in your career without feeling guilty about it. When we are young, we are so committed to what it is we want, or don’t want. As adults, we can lose that courage of our convictions as we fall into people-pleasing habits. It can also make us feel too vulnerable to admit these desires.
 
In order for you to answer what you want without feeling guilt, you need to realise and accept your goals and then understand that your desires and inclinations are valid, regardless of the response you may get from external opinions. Tune in as I share strategies, stories, and give actionable advice to empower you to ask for what you deserve in your career.

Summary

What will you learn in this episode:

 

  • Understanding your worth – realising that your needs and desires are valid and being able to fully use effective communication by learning to express your wants clearly and confidently. 
  • Understanding the importance of setting healthy boundaries as well as learning how to deal with rejection – develop resilience when faced with ‘no’.
  • Cultural and gender considerations – explore how different backgrounds can affect our ability to ask freely.

Episode notes

As an award-winning certified executive and career coach, TEDx speaker, podcast host and former lawyer, I have seen way too many female professionals under selling themselves and settling for less in their careers. I am committed to equipping high achieving women with the tools and support to create careers that are both meaningful and impactful.
