Episode Description

After careful consideration of a college major, you navigate a thoughtful and successful career. Years go by and you learn a ton along the way and enjoy knowing you’re making a valuable contribution to your employer. Then, seemingly out of the blue, you enter another stage of life where you want something else from life and your work. The question is – should you stay or should you go? There are certainly advantages to each route. How do you choose what’s right for you? And once you do decide, how do you strategize that transition and make that new path work for you? If you can relate to this story or any of these questions, tune into this episode as Dr. Shelette Stewart discusses how she learned to connect her career with her calling and her profession with her purpose and how she espouses this same path for others in order to maximize personal fulfillment and professional success and drive performance, productivity, and bottom-line profitability.
