The ‘Great Resignation.’ Is it happening in Canada? Some say yes. Others say not now but coming soon.
The pandemic has given many employees the opportunity to rethink their priorities and align their work with their values and who they really are.
For many, quality time and less stress make working from home more appealing than the coveted corner office. Others question whether striving to fulfill the conventional definitions of success is worth the effort when it means that they cannot be authentic at work and in daily life.
We all know our truth. Being authentic can be difficult. But it’s not worth the effort to hold on to a false identity because of the fear of losing what we think is valuable.
Sometimes a career crisis forces resignation and realignment of values and work.
Although this happened to me many years before the pandemic, I share my experience and the lessons learned from a career crisis directed me to find meaningful work and to live authentically.
