I work with an executive who is making six figures and supporting her family as a single mother, and has a value around stability, but she hates her job but really believes that she can’t leave it because of her family. Her perception is that she cannot make a VP salary at any other company. This is what she says stands in in her way of moving into fulfilling work.
If I asked you: Are you playing to your strengths and doing it every day, what would you say? Would you have to think about it for a while or could you answer with a resounding “Yes!” Or would you want us to explain more about what we really mean by that phrase?
