Please listen to the recording or read the transcription.


How do I help someone who has never been satisfied with their job? Hello my name is Christopher Lawrence. I’m a career and whole life coach with Change My Life Coaching. I’m going to give you an example of how I helped someone, who has never been satisfied with their job. I recently had a client her name was Jenny she was 30 years old, she was never satisfied with the kind of work she had. She complained a lot about her boss, the company, and her co-workers. Despite the complaining though Jenny did work hard, she was very detail oriented but she just couldn’t find satisfaction.

Now Jenny took a lot of extra courses and certifications, and the reason why she did this was because she was constantly looking for satisfaction, and she thought maybe that would bring it to her. She thought maybe that help her learn to love her job a little bit more. So what we had to do with Jenny is that we had to come up with some solutions, and the first thing we did is we made a connection that while her circumstance was in her control, she couldn’t fix the company, or the people she worked with, or her bosses but she could influence them. So we had to teach Jenny how to influence, and then I recommend that just for a little while Jenny stop taking courses just for a few months. So she was wrapping up one round, she was considering taking another round, and I asked her just to hold off for a little bit until we knew which direction she needed to move. Jenny actually agreed she felt like this was a good solution. Then we took a whole life approach to helping her discover the right career.

So what I mean by that is that we looked at the job tasks themselves, that filled her up and made her feel strong, because that is what a job is made of. It is made of the task, it’s not made up of the job title, it’s not made up of the money. It’s made up of the task that are in the job. So we looked at the job task then we looked at her value system, which might have included title and money in Jenny’s case, and then we looked at her psychological human needs. Once we took a look at those 3 whole areas and after some intensive coaching, Jenny found a job in a logistics company that was a great fit for her, not just the job but also the culture. And because of coaching Jenny knows exactly how to climb up that corporate ladder. I’m glad to say she will have her first direct report in the new year. So, this is one of the ways that we can help people who have never been satisfied with their job.
