Job Dissatisfaction – What can you do ?

Sadly, around the world today there are millions of people who go to work every day Capture d’écran 2014-07-17 à 08.52.30disliking their job and wishing they were elsewhere (according to Gallup organization, only 13% of people are actively engaged in their jobs.) While the cost to the bottom line in organizations is in the billions, the cost to the human spirit is immeasurable. So if you’re unhappy at work you’ve basically got three options:

a) Change what you do – whether a new role or a new career (yes, it will require trading the security of where you are now to step into an uncertain future. But seriously, aren’t you putting your happiness at risk staying where you are?)

b) Change how you do it – adopt a new mindset and cultivate new habits

c) Change nothing, and be complicit in your own misery  (not my recommended option)
