Power up by switching some negatives into positives!
As a recruitment professional you’re probably familiar with it, but there’s quite a lot of research into why people leave a job. And much of it points to five key reasons:
- They don’t feel good about what they do.
- They don’t feel important.
- They don’t feel they are growing.
- They don’t get the support they need.
- They don’t feel they are getting paid enough.
Let’s be honest here. There have been times, have there not, when you’ve ticked some of those boxes yourself? Or maybe all of them? You’re only human!
The point is, that with that ‘self starter’ entrepreneur streak embedded in your DNA, as it is with so many recruitment consultants, you’ve probably turned your thoughts to starting up on your own as the alternative.
And when you’re thinking about starting your own business, it’s worth thinking about those five negatives. Because, when you switch them to positives, you’ll find it very empowering.
If you don’t feel good about what you do now, you’re never going to feel better about it than when it’s yours. You’re definitely going to feel important. You’ll be running the show! If you can’t feel you’re growing when you launch your own business, you never will. Now you’ll have the chance to grow personally and professionally. And your efforts will make your business grow.
Support? Well, you’ll need to be a good manager to get the best out of your people, so that they support you. But, in the early stages you’ll need support to set up, get your systems running, and have the finances in place. Outside support is there if you look. Choose wisely and you’ll have not just sound backing but the autonomy to feel good about yourself, and feel important.
And when it comes to pay, you’ll be your own master. Of course you’ll need to be prudent at the start, but the main thing is the harder you work the more you’ll earn. And that’s not always true when you’re an employee.
So, if you’re in the recruitment business, and you’re not completely happy about what you’re doing, take a look at those five negative feelings; the reasons why people leave jobs. Then turn them into positives – power up, and start on your own. It could be exactly what you’re destined for.
