What can make you unhappy in your work?
Is it your co-workers? Your customers? Your actual job?
It can be hard to separate out the source of the problems.
I had a client who was a stockbroker. He was 29 years old. He and his wife wanted a child, but he had not been able to keep a job that lasted more than a year.
We started coaching with just three questions:
DID HE LIKE HIS CLIENTS? Yes.
DID HE LIKE BEING A STOCKBROKER? Yes.
DID HE LIKE HIS CO-WORKERS? NO!
It was an unprofessional situation in the office, particularly with the language his co-workers used. It was inappropriate, with a lot of profanities. His own behavior had sunk to their level.
One day he was so angry that he broke his hand when he punched a wall. He needed help, and he found me as a coach. He had to identify the problem and then find a way to fix it.
I helped him get hired at E*TRADE. It was a very professional environment. He flourished and was a top performer for six years. Now he has his own firm and is a successful wealth management advisor.
The turning point for him was when we separated out the three components of his problems. Then he needed a strategy to get past this. It worked!
I cried when he sent me a picture of his baby boy.
