Key Takeaways From Today’s Episode

Embrace Change, Even the Good Kind
Change can be daunting even when it brings positive outcomes. Feeling anxious about leaving a familiar environment for something new is natural. Recognize that this fear is normal, especially for high achievers and people pleasers. However, remember that change can be challenging initially, although it will often lead to growth and fulfillment.

Prepare + Plan for a Smooth Transition
Crafting a career transition plan involves thoughtful and strategic planning. Start by reframing any guilty feelings you may have about leaving your current role. Then, follow a structured approach to resigning with grace and gratitude, focusing on determining your timeline, crafting a communication strategy, building a transition plan, and staying connected with your network.

Focus on People, Process, and Performance in Your First 90 Days
The first 90 days in a new role are crucial for setting the stage for success. Prioritize building relationships with your colleagues and stakeholders, streamlining your workflow, establishing productive habits, demonstrating your capabilities, and meeting performance expectations. Focusing on people, processes, and performance can make a positive impression and lay the foundation for long-term success in your new role.

Remember, navigating career transitions can be challenging, but with the right mindset and approach, you will flourish in your new role and embrace the opportunities.
