There is a gap in career coaching services.

There is a gap in career coaching services – Jill Griffin Coaching

Many career services focus on one half of the problem. They either focus on mindset or getting into action.  I believe without investigating your mind you will not make sustainable changes to propel you into action. And without action, we don’t grow and achieve our results. Both sides need to be addressed. My work teaches…

How to Change Your Career Mindset

career mindset

It’s time to change your career mindset. Here is why: I was ridiculously successful and totally empty. I couldn’t understand how a few times a month I would start the day happy and before lunch I was searching job sites. Nothing had changed. Same job, same people, same office.

Career

How do you create a change in your career when you are frustrated by lack of results?  If you believe change is hard, you take the focus off yourself and your actions, and thus your career.  You spin. Overthink. You get advice by committee.  And you beat yourself up based on your results. The change…

Are you micro-quitting and self-sabotaging your life?

micro-quitting

Micro-quitting. It’s cunning. Quitting is big. Obvious. Micro-quitting is stealthy. It’s devious. We don’t always see the subtle, quiet decisions we make. It’s kinda passive-aggressive – but you are the passive aggressor to yourself. You’re busy. Probably stressed. Definitely overwhelmed. You are waiting for a clear shot of confidence.  You choose not to show up.…

Brilliant question: So what are you making this mean?

brilliant question

Early on in my career, a mentor taught me a simple yet brilliant question ‘so what are you making this mean?’ The message was clear. Decide what is significant. Provide context and what you believe is the path forward in a situation.  Fast forward to today, and I find it amusing that I now ask…

Priority versus Time: the never-ending dilemma.

priority

What’s your most important career priority?  Are you giving it enough time? We have top priorities and then we claim lack of time.  But time is always a choice.  I help my clients to align their priorities with time.  And then learn how to say NO to everything else.  Yikes! What about balance?  Balance is…

Feel bad at work? Ditch the overconsumption, focus on mindset.

Woman over-consuming feeling bad about career

Careers are 50/50. Life is 50/50. It’s normal to cycle through both good and bad feelings. So many of my clients tell me they’ve spent years forcing themselves to be and stay happy. They have a great career. A strong resumé. They feel they shouldn’t complain. But they let ambition turn to expectancy and resent…

Time Management: From Hell to Healthy

Small white alarm clock in a hand - time management - Jill Griffin Coaching

I didn’t always plan my week – time management wasn’t on my mind. As a corporate employee, it seemed IMPOSSIBLE to have control over my day. I didn’t start the day with any thoughtful intentions. The first thing I did was watch or listen to the News, scroll through social media, and quickly review email.…
