This episode is part one of a free coaching series that will help us wrap up this current year and prepare for public health career success in the new year. Let’s focus our attention on why your public health career goals are important. You’d be surprised to know how many people are focused on a title instead of following their heart to serve. Getting clear at this point makes a huge difference in the long run.
If you’re wondering whether or not this series of episodes is going to be helpful for you, then let me try to help break it down and help you decide.
This December podcast series is for you if:
New public health student
About to graduate
Graduated but not working in public health
Early career professional
Senior level professional who feels a little too comfortable (maybe bored) with current role
Entrepreneur – secret, new, thriving business owner
I’m pouring into each of the episodes in the series so that we can all prepare hit the ground running in the new year.
So with that in mind, let’s dig into to topic for today.
Getting clear about the area of public health that you care most about, the area where you’d like to serve, is one of the most important first steps you can take in setting your career goals.
When I work with clients, we often solve so many issues by returning to this baseline level of clarity.
Some common stumbling blocks:
People follow things others tell them to do, instead of figuring out their own way
People are confused because they are multi-passionate
People focus on a job title instead of a true passion
People are afraid to own what they care about, fear of being different
Gaining clarity at this point is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Know your "why"
