CAREER TRANSITION | WORKPLACE ISSUES
Our careers are very important to us. We innately have a need to feel productive. For some of us, the kind of work we do is connected to our identities and our sense of purpose. When our passions and talents are given a chance to develop and flourish in our work, we feel a deep sense of satisfaction and joy. Aside from the type of work we perform and our roles within an organization, our relationships with co-workers are also key to feeling valued and respected and contribute to a feeling of belonging and camaraderie.
Sometimes people begin to feel stuck in some aspect of their work life and dream about starting over some place new or re-inventing themselves. Experiencing a job loss can have a profound impact. The distress sometimes leads to a downward spiral of loss of self-esteem, lack of motivation, and symptoms of depression. The stress of coping with conflicts with coworkers and bosses may lead to demoralization, lack of productivity, and absenteeism.
