Executive Coaching and Career Coaching: Why You Might Be Feeling Undervalued

Executive Coaching and Career Coaching: Why You Might Be Feeling Undervalued

Do you feel valued or undervalued in your career? Are you fed up with feeling burnt-out, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, and frustrated? Do you feel appreciated or taken for granted? Perhaps you feel disappointed and let down and held back by work-place politics, other people’s issues, and outdated status quos? Do you feel you have untapped and unlocked potential, but you feel your current work environment does not welcome opportunities for growth? Or perhaps you’ve been overlooked for a well-deserved and timely career promotion?

Alternatively, you may be an executive or leader experiencing leadership succession or wanting to change your team or organisation dynamics and culture, however, you may be unsure of where to start or what to do to inspire motivation, confidence, and change within others?

Either way, feeling valued or undervalued within your own career, or communicating and inspiring value as an executive leader within other people can be a game changer when promoting and offering a positive professional culture, confidence, trust, career fulfilment, motivation, individual and team performance, progression, morale, reputation, and providing effective recruitment resources and talent sustainability.

Feeling undervalued or not communicating value to your team members impacts both individual and team confidence in many ways.
