While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

Many of my clients come to me for Career Counseling. They have found that they are unhappy with their jobs for a variety of reasons and many are unsure of what they want to do next. Together, we explore what is currently going on and how that has been effecting their performance. Next, we focus on what we do like and use this to create a template for research and discussion for options and opportunities. Then we update, tweak and redefine the things that will help get us to the next step. Finally, we take the steps and work with accountability to achieve our goal.

We know being satisfied at work is not just about productivity and competency. You may be great at what you do. You may be very successful by every external metric. Or maybe you aren't motivated or aren't stimulated by what you do. You have to find a way to navigate your current position or find a new one that is satisfying and fulfulling. We help clients clarify their values and identify beliefs and behavioral patterns that have interfered with taking the risks necessary to be professionally fulfilled. Your work life is certainly about financial security, but it can do more than put food on the table. It can feed you intellectually, interpersonally, and emotionally.

Career clarity tends to be achieved when one's profession is an expression of who they are. When this is not the case work feels too much like a task & too little like an experience with personal meaning. Such situations can feel very draining & distressing, as work is a major part of how we spend our time & relates deeply to our sense of identity. Therefore, helping a person understand who they really are & what they value is crucial to a lasting & satisfying career choice. Indeed, it is also vital to help people remove the barriers that they sometimes place in their own way. This is done though utilizing both insight and the establishment of new patterns that lead to new outcomes.

I don't do formal career counseling, but enjoy counseling entrepreneurs, business men and women, and performing artists. We would help you develop better assertiveness skills, clarify direction, improve motivation, encourage and guide you in negotiating higher salaries and rates, and cope with job/career crisis and change. I have worked with many people who lost their jobs in the current economic downturn. I also have a specialty working with performing artists to help them find satisfying jobs that allow them to pursue their art, and work with them on stage fright, creative blocks, and balancing relationship/work.

Sometimes we just need some direction, and sometimes once we find our direction, we need to examine the concrete (as well as abstract) career and life obstacles that might be getting in our way. Sometimes career counseling is about "figuring out what you want to be when you grow up" and sometimes it's about becoming more effective at what you already do so your work life is fulfilling.

Earning a living is a major part of our lives; ideally it should be fulfilling as well as providing for material needs. If you are unhappy in your work life, there are many approaches and choices that can radically improve it. Sometimes it is a matter of altering attitude and motivation so that you exude energy not resignation. Transitioning to a new position of responsibility can call for flexibility in modifying work habits, and handling interpersonal relationships. Engineering a career change is more possible than most of us realize, but there are intimidating challenges. Recognizing when one is in a dead end is occasionally necessary; especially if you've invested years of effort.

Work is an enormously important part of our lives. As is often said, we spend more hours of our lives at work than anywhere else. So making that work as good as it can be is vitally important to our health, sanity, and general well-being. Yet that, like so many things, can be easier said than done. I can help you explore your upbringing and education, your personal values, needs, and desires, along with ambitions and fears to help you find and succeed along a well-chosen professional path. This kind of support and guidance is just as important for someone just embarking on a career as it is for someone well along the path. It's never too late to take control of your direction.
