With so many people suffering career setbacks during this pandemic, I wanted to share this inspiring story of Aaron Leventhal, a former FlyBe airline pilot turned Tesco truck driver. He shares his story of dealing with personal tragedy, managing career upheaval, and finding a way forward after the recent wave of airline industry layoffs.
During the Mental Fuel segment, I also share some examples of my own disappointing professional setbacks and ways I’ve tried to bounce back from these moments. If you’ve ever been dealt a blow in your own career for whatever reason, I hope you find this episode reassuring, inspiring, and most of all, a reminder that unexpected setbacks are a very normal part of any career journey.Read More
After taking a brief break from hosting this podcast, I’ve decided to restart the show to feature a few stories of how people around the world are managing their professional lives amid the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, which has created tremendous upheaval and uncertainty not only in people’s lives but also their careers. On today’s show, financial controller Liya Daskina explains how she’s been managing her transition after resigning from her role in the UK so she could move back to Australia only to now find herself in one of the most difficult hiring climates of our lifetime. We discuss how to manage uncertainty and make the most of a difficult time. After our chat, I share an update on how things have changed in my own life over the past few weeks and my perspectives on whether to wait until things blow over with the pandemic or act now to pursue your career ambitions.Read More
