{Video} Why Asking ‘What Am I Good At’ Is Hurting Your Career

By January 30, 2018 April 23rd, 2018 I Don't Know What I Want To Do, I Need A New Job

We’re all guilty of asking “What am I good at?” But is that question hurting your career?

We want something or someone to have that answer for us: Just tell me what I’m good at and what I should do with my life and career so I can stop worrying!

I get it.

Unfortunately, too often when we ask this question we look outside of our own intuition and guidance with the hope that feedback from a boss or a colleague can give us the validation we need.

This is semi-helpful at best and damaging at worst.

So let’s talk about how to really get clear on your strengths.

Work Bigger Coach Katherine Folk-Sullivan & I will be sharing what you can do to get a good grasp on your skill set so you can find work you love and make a difference in the world.

We also put together a guide to help you work through some key questions around your skill set. Get it here.

After you’re done watching, let us know in the comments – what’s the greatest insight that you received from this interview on hurting your career? And, what’s one thing you can do right now to tap into your own intuition when it comes to your strengths?
