Say It Skillfully® – Transitions! Changing Jobs, New Roles & More
October 12, 2021
Hosted by Molly Tschang
Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang’s expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive and productive manner. In Episode 101, Cindy calls in first and shares thoughts on onboarding new people, in particular how to make it a two-way street. While it may seem “obvious” that all parties have skin in the game, employers who are proactive best set up newbies up for success by being explicit about training, and even more importantly they demonstrate “how” people work together. Then Gaby, who loves her job, shares how she didn’t exactly get off to a stellar start with her new boss and team; now a gossipy, combative setting is wearing on her emotionally and has her wondering if it’s worth it. Molly helps Gaby unpack this and shows how she can mend relationships and get back on track (11:45). Next, Roger is vulnerable about a very challenging period at an organization he’s been with for several years; promoted four times and then—boom—shockingly let go with a very bad taste for how it transpired. They discuss how to recover, stay high and turn this into a welcome opportunity to live his passion (28:00). Finally, Ben, immersed in change both personally and professionally, is now leading a bigger team and faces the need to grow his team, the organization and himself. Molly talks with him about leading people vs. managing work, and the imperative of increasing BOTH self-awareness and self-compassion (44:00). Molly’s thought for the week: Honor our teachers—past, present and future—especially the teacher within. Tune in and learn how to navigate work while being invaluable and true to yourself.
