Career choice Reorientation and digitization: Solving problems instead of brooding!

Career reorientation is difficult for many people, especially in Germany - for too long was the philosophy that you work in the profession that you once learned. But in the face of the digital transformation, which does not stop at the workplace, reorientation is needed. self knowledge-abnegation

Pondering to solve problems?

Many people are dissatisfied with their job, but they do not get beyond the ponder when it comes to professional reorientation. The topic should be tackled in a pragmatic way and in three concrete steps.

On the other hand, I am always amazed at how naturally people want to get their new jobs started by brooding. It looks like this: “I have been dissatisfied with my job for years and I have been working on possible alternatives for a long time. But I just can't get any further! I can't think of what to do. Or wanted. ”

"I just don't have good ideas"

My first question is then mostly: What have you done so far to come up with new ideas? How did you search for it? And in most cases, the puzzled answer is something like this:

“What should I have done? I have of course thought! I've pondered whole nights. And of course I keep talking to all kinds of people about it. Don't think I'm making it easy for myself! But I just don't have a good idea… ”

Wicky, the Viking - or why the optimal solution does not come by itself

I find this approach rather suboptimal. Would the same people try to cope with an important, complex task in the job in this way?

For example, if you were to develop a new product or to optimize complicated processes, would they include days and weeks in their office and think exclusively? And maybe talk to colleagues about it once in a while? Perhaps until sometime a solution arises?

This may have worked with Wicky, the Viking, (the somewhat older among you will remember the nasereibende Gör with the mad ideas). Otherwise the idea is absurd, is not it?

Solve problems like project work

Many of us have some kind of work related to project work. Projects have a fixed time frame and consist of successive steps. At the beginning it is mostly tried to think as broadly as possible and to look beyond the box.

In the final phase, the best idea is worked out in detail and brought to the point. In between, the course is checked. And besides, it is not uncommon to hold things in writing and pictures.

This is quite trivial, is not it?

Human understanding instead of psychologists' view

Why, however, do so many new orientationists think of coming up with new, great ideas by thinking? It's strange. Many believe that only sophisticated and complicated tools can help them find their new job.

Or the piercing psychologist's gaze, which immediately recognizes where they would be best kept ...

My simple advice, which has more to do with a healthy understanding of people than with coaching tools, is: Consider your search for a new career as a development project!

No secret science

And with a little bit of project management, a bit of psychology and a pinch of creativity, this really is not a secret science.

To make things easier, I have divided the career reorientation into three levels (and this applies equally to every other more complex change process) - the neworienter has three tasks that are equally important and parallel:

The 3 levels of professional reorientation

  1. Development (from interests and wishes to defined job projects)
  2. Self-management (to avoid being hampered by blockages and fears)
  3. Planning and structure (without which we are guaranteed to get tangled and run away)

I will explain the most important aspects of each of these levels in the next three parts of this post. And I'm pretty sure you'll say after that Actually quite logical ... ;-)
