The million-dollar question
As an emotions mindset coach operating in a world of highly ambitious women, one of the most common struggles I see women face today is deciding whether they should quit their jobs.
Changing jobs is no easy feat. The prospect of quitting can cause a lot of stress, in addition to the time and energy required to find a new, better job. In other words, just thinking about it can take a toll on your wellbeing, let alone putting a strategy in place.
Yet, over two third of women prefer to quit their jobs rather than ask for a raise or negotiate their working conditions.
When it just gets too difficult
The problem is compounded by the fact that women are disproportionately affected by burnout. Pre-pandemic, research in the US showed that 68% of working women experienced burnout against 58% of men. Numbers have now crossed 70% for women, 62% of which admitted to taking time off work because of stress. In the current situation, women are four times more likely to leave their jobs than men.
Some of the reasons you might be contemplating quitting are:
-You’re working hard but you feel like this is not paying off
-You’re exhausted from constantly feeling like you have to prove yourself
-You’ve started to question your love for work
-You feel empty inside, you are less productive.
-You’re not sure you’re in the right place
Asking the right questions
I quit my job back in 2015 after a year of wondering what I should do. Similarly, Beth Schneiter, the founder of Wildflower Transformation Coaching, quit working for a major trading organisation after burnout.
Precisely because of her experience, Beth has since become an expert on the subjects of burnout and misalignment at work.
Beth will tell you that if you’re asking yourself “Should I quit or should I stay,” more often than not you’re not asking the right question.
f you’re currently exploring whether to quit your job or not and if you’re feeling lost and not sure what to do, join Beth’s session on the topic: “My corporate job: Should I stay or should I leave?” During the Stuff Talks Ambitious Woman Summit.
Beth, owner of Wildflower Transformation Coaching, is a certified Transformation Coach and Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) Practitioner working with ambitious women, who know deep down that something is missing in their life. She gently guides and empowers women to let go of the past, reclaim their power, and start living a life that sets their soul on fire.
With a history of working in banking and finance at one of the largest global trading companies, she knows a thing or two about the highs and lows of working in corporate. She has experienced how easily we can give our power away without even realising it until we start to feel completely lost and empty inside.
