Assess the right timing and choose the right exit strategies for your next career move.
The ‘last’ step of our learning cycle presents the preparation for your next career move and the execution of that move. We consciously put ‘last’ under quotation marks as this may as well be your starting module in Grit Point. If you feel stuck in your career or if you feel the itch to start something new this is a good way to get the ball rolling.
Every successful transition is the outcome of a clear motivation for the change, a good overview of the possibilities for the move and great preparation for the execution.
The need for a job change can come sudden, but organizational structures are rarely as flexible. Notice periods have to be respected which is why a change overnight will not apply in cases where both parties want to close the transition in a fair and professional way. If you desire to change a role within your current organization, a new position has to be found first, all elements of the change need to be executed properly, roles need to be handed over to the successors and the communication to all engaged parties has to be timely and considerate.
Unfortunately, leaving an organization is not always a voluntary act. Business situations often change in modern, dynamic environments. As a result organizational structures are impacted, costs need to be cut and with that, jobs often need to be downsized. These changes can catch you by surprise and will need to be managed well – administratively but even more so emotionally.
Whether it is a voluntary or involuntary transition, the team behind Grit Point has the relevant experience and proven expertise to help you safely navigate these tricky situations.
