For many people, a successful career doesn’t always lead to career happiness. There are a number of explanations for this disconnect, including ultra-driven and ambitious personalities, Imposter Syndrome and the feeling that you and your work are unnoticed or under-appreciated.
In this episode of B2B Nation, we talk to Terry McDougall, a former corporate marketer who today runs her own business as an executive and career coach. Terry is also the author of Winning the Game of Work: Career Happiness and Success on Your Own Terms.
Terry’s goal when working with her clients is to offer them career advice that helps shift their mindsets and learn new skills so they can enjoy more success with less effort.
