"Even a hamster wheel looks like a career ladder from the inside," it says. There is a lot of truth in it: The desire to reach higher and higher and higher can end in a dead end - as the case of Karstadt manager Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt shows. 5 tips to prevent this from happening.

Dead end - that's how fast it can be done

Overview

It can go quickly with the impasse: Get a great job offer, with higher salary, more leadership responsibility, more creative freedom - allegedly. For beautiful promises, concerns are quickly ignored in the first euphoria:

For example, that you have to move from the big city to the flat country. Or that you have to buy the salary increase with significantly more stress. Or that the creative freedom is not as big as expected.

Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt as a current example

Overview

A current example is the Karstadt manager Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt, who has just thrown the towel this week. Reason: Too little support from Nicolas-Berggruen, owner of Karstadt.

Such a situtation is difficult if one can not get back from his old job or no new possibilities open up on the horizon.

  • To be informed: It may sound hackneyed, but in the first euphoria you will miss some warning. It is important to find out before a supposed rise exactly what the new job means - eg more stress, more travel, moving to the countryside. Because the supposed dream job can quickly become a nightmare.
  • Know your goals exactly: If you want to be successful, you should know exactly what success means to you. This is not always synonymous with more salary and more responsibility. Therefore, one should realize what is important in life - and whether the new job really fits these personal goals.
  • Is the work fulfilling in the long term? If you do not have time for hobbies, family and relaxation, the batteries are quickly empty and top performances impossible. If you do not have time for hobbies, family and relaxation, you should ask about the short-term salary increase.
  • The chemistry must be right: But it is also important that you with the new colleagues and the Chef clearly comes. Anyone who has a slight doubt at the beginning, whether it can work it should not just wipe it aside but try to get more information.
  • The rise a flop - and now? What can you do if it turns out that the supposed rise on the career ladder was a flop? Restrict damage. Perhaps there is still a possibility to continue in the old job. If not, you can bridge the waiting for new opportunities with other jobs or make yourself independent.

    For me, a career ladder does not always have to go upwards (viewed from the outside). It is precisely the experiences, defeats, that make a leadership personality. How will a manager be reflected, for whom there was always only a steep climb without difficulties?
    Even "idle times", ie a job is over and a new one not yet in sight offer a lot of potential to "catch your breath" and to look for a new project with new energy.
    I admire Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt for her courage to throw a job that does not keep what he promises. I think that through such an attitude many new opportunities arise for them. Today, we need managers with edges that do not have a job, but say when something has slipped into slate.
    An alleged return for others can be a step in the right direction.

      Hi Silke,
      thanks for the comment, you said that nicely. Eva-Lotta Sjöstedt is also in this respect not the best (but a recent example), as I agree with you, that she will certainly find other options soon. There are other cases in which this is not the case and thus understand a step backwards as defeat. This is also helped by the German way of dealing with failure: in other countries, it is far more common for people to temporarily work in "unqualified" occupations. In Germany, for many this is still equated with social decline, although that does not have to be the case , Lately, I've heard of a former fellow student who worked as an IT consultant after studying archeology and is now opening a candy store - cool thing to do his own thing, but some would roll up their noses. Or in another case, someone supplies boardrooms with his biscuits and makes good contacts.

      Regards
