The 360 Leadhership Podcast, Episode 95, 18 October 2023 by Lucy Gernon

Is Your Next Career Move on the Horizon?

Navigating career changes and considering job offers from other companies can be a challenge, especially when you feel deeply attached to your current employer.

Loyalty to your current workplace often transcends the realm of professional ties; it’s a sense of belonging that intertwines with years of dedicated service. I can certainly relate, drawing from my own 12-year journey with a company where every nook and cranny felt like a familiar home, and the roots of loyalty ran deep.

It’s a hard pill to swallow, but your company is not your friend.

So many people I know, have lost their job unexpectedly over one mistake, or have been made redundant out of the blue. And these people have been left stuck. They didn’t have any options, because they were so loyal to their company and  they didn’t see it coming.

And when these things happened, they felt like a fish out of water. They didn’t know their market value. They didn’t know the market. They didn’t know what job opportunities were out there with competitors or in other industries. They didn’t understand that they had transferable skills. And it’s all because they hadn’t worked on networking, and creating a personal brand for themselves which is super, super important.

But don’t worry, because in today’s discussion, I’m here to lend you a helping hand! I’ll get into advice and personal experiences to equip you with the tools and wisdom necessary to navigate these crossroads on your career journey if they crop up.
