Career Reflection: What if I Knew Then What I Know Now?

For this article by Jo Ilfeld, Executive Leadership Coach on career reflection, the image shows a man starting reflectively and thinking.

Taking the time for career reflection is valuable.

Recently, I was reflecting with a client on our careers, mine with about 10 years in executive coaching, and his a little longer in his current career. We were asking each other what we had confidence in then and what we have confidence in now.

It was also interesting to see how some of our underlying values have not changed even though they may look different on the outside.

Watch my video to see if this resonates with you, too.

What are things that you know now that you didn’t know at the beginning of your career? How do you see it in action now? How could you potentially put it into action?
