Who's making sure You're Thriving?

Danielle Beauparlant Moser
If you're not proactively managing your career, no one else is doing it for it you.
Helping people make their lives better through their work is the unifying theme of my career -- because life’s too short for work to stink. We typically spend so much time 'at work' that when its good, it has a positive impact.

But, when it isn’t good, it can have a profoundly negative impact on all areas of your life.

The focus of my work is to be a partner helping others find work where they can thrive rather than merely survive.

There are 3 questions I use as a guide. By using this self-designed Career Management Diagnostic, you can quickly determine what you already know versus what you need to know.

In other words, where to focus effort:

1) What do you want to do when you're at your best?  (Not what can you do, that's different.)
2) How will your personal priorities impact your next step? 
3) Who needs what you have? (The profile of the organization and the stakeholder.)

I co-authored the 2nd EXPANDED Edition of the book: "FOCUS: Creating Career & Brand Clarity" - please check it out.

A glimpse into me

Why did you choose your profession?
I was lucky enough in my 20's to have gained clarity about what I wanted the legacy of my career to be.

When I looked at what I loved most and where I added the most value, it was in helping people make their lives better through their work.

Whether in my role as an executive consultant, as an executive coach, or as an organizational effectiveness practitioner, an instructional designer, or the founding member of a middle/high school, it's the theme that unites my career.

The world would be a better place if we all had work we found fulfilling and allowed us to thrive.

Aristotle had it right when he said "Where the needs of the world and your talents cross, therein lies your vocation."

To accomplish that, we each need to know where our strengths and interests intersect with global marketplace needs.

What is one of the biggest challenges in the workplace today?
We are each accountable for managing our employ-ability. We each have the capacity to be sustainably employed if we just know how. It's my mission to share that knowledge.

The key for the conversation is knowing where you want to go or what's next in your career based on the realities of the marketplace.

The answer to the question: "What do you want to do?" is important and often difficult to answer.

What the research for our book showed us that what you WANT to do is usually where you EXCEL professionally.
