My Big 4 client really hated her job. All day to day stuff that everyone else told her to do. All execution and no strategy, no thinking.
She dreamed of actually making a difference to an organization. She had the big picture brain. Could see into the future.
We spent time in determining that strategy was the right role for her. I used a few tools of the trade to link her personality traits to job titles. We came up with 10 job titles and finally selected strategy. She did the hard work; I only advised.
She did not make a quick move since pivots are hard. However, knowing what you really want to do is a huge relief.
She is now strategy consulting, learning about all different industries. She smiles now. I have the best job in the world!
