Interesting article from Gianpiero Petriglieri at @HBR, “The Art of Career Development.” Here Petriglieri makes a beautiful comparison between “a career” and art.
He touches on the idea that as “meaning” is an integral aspect of art, it’s also an integral aspect of career satisfaction. No matter what the skill or level of expertise… skills and capability level alone can’t provide the sense of success and satisfaction that individuals want from their work today. And as with art, this sense of meaningfulness only comes when “what you are doing” aligns with “who you are” — when your work adds meaning to your life.
Working with a coach can provide you with the perfect sounding board for expanding the alignment of YOU and your work.
Is your career calling to you? It may be time to create your career masterpiece!
