After many years of working hard in my corporate career I woke up one morning with the realisation that I had my ladder up against the wrong wall. It took some soul searching, planning and experimentation to find meaningful work and re-establish myself but it was so worth the effort, even though there were sacrifices, doubts and challenges along the way. Interestingly during my search for a different path I found that many friends and colleagues felt, like me, unhappy and trapped in unfulfilling jobs yet had resigned themselves to not changing. Often due to fear, family expectation and financial concerns. There is no doubt that it can be frightening to follow your heart and it doesn't come without some hard work and patience but it is worth the effort if you have dreamed of: * Becoming a solo-entrepreneur or running your own business * Moving to significantly different work with a different type of organisation * Continuing with your current work but with an organisation that matches your values * A portfolio role of contract/consultancy work, entrepreneurship, board positions * Retraining or studying to move into a new profession Although career change is never a straight path, (there will certainly be unexpected twists and turns), if you follow these steps you can map out a route to a new and brighter future. 1. Self exploration. The first step is to take some time out to really get to know yourself and not just your skills and experience. Dig deep and find out about your personality preferences, your values and interests and the environments that bring out the best in you. 2. Identify options. At this stage I encourage my clients to think as broadly and creatively as possible about the options for future work. This is not about finding solutions but opening up and getting excited about the full range of possibilities. 3. Research and testing. Having identified all available options the purpose of this step is to conduct research and do some reality testing. There are lots of ways to achieve this through informational interviews, volunteering, research, reading, networking and evaluation. By taking an in-depth approach to research and testing you can make considered decisions about your future 4. Transition planning. All good projects have a transition plan which maps out the steps to get you from where you are to where you want to be. A well thought through plan which includes everything from physical and financial resources to training, communication and timescales will give you the confidence to make your career change a reality. 5. Implementation. Once you have your plan in place you can start the process of achieving your dreams. Even though you may make some adjustments during the implementation phase you will do this with the reassurance of having a blue print in place.

Why should I hire you instead of the 15 other people before you? That's the question you need to be able to answer. That question needs answered regardless of your decision to start your own business, or seek a new job at a new company. So how can you likely ensure you success in your next career move? Simple write the book, lets say for example you have 18 years of experience as a Mechanical Engineer, and your company laid you off. Realize that in today's economy you're going to be facing hundreds and possibly thousands of competitive applicants. The strategy I suggest is to write a book, your book. It should contain your experiences, success and the challenges you overcame. By sharing your experiences your writing the book that will give you your success at your next career. It's an easy way to show interviewers just what you have to offer. Moreover most resumes only get about 30 seconds of attention whereas a book written by you about you may get an hour, you do the math. But what if you decided to start your own business? The answer is obvious; yes tell everyone just what you have to offer. Share your experience, your skills, knowledge and down to earth personality. So the first step to answering the question we have all asked the day our company closed, or when we got laid off; "What do I do now?" Would be to sit down and plan your book, the most important point to writing your book is to not talk about yourself. Instead speak to your future employer; client or boss. They are not interested in your pet terrier, but instead they want to hear about the challenges you faced and exactly how you overcame them. They have pain, problems concerns and there hoping you can help them solve them, show them that you can. ? By the way.....do you see yourself as having Paid your Dues but maybe you haven't seen any extra Pay show up in your Pay Check? ?

New Teacher Tips - Are You in the Lesson Planning Trap?
Are you relying too much on your lesson plan hoping it is the ticket to your students' success? Do you find yourself sometimes overplanning your lessons to the point of overkill? Are you relying too much on a lesson planning formula that you were taught only to find that it isn't particularly working for you? If you find yourself doing any of these things, then you're in the discipline trap. And you've missed the point about lesson planning. Too much overplanning is not effective because in fact, you overlook other important teaching elements early on. Being caught in this trap also won't help you achieve your teaching goals because you are not developing other important "flexibilities" that you need. Don't get me wrong - a lesson plan should include the following components, but many new teachers fall victim to the lesson planning trap because: * they think they need to overplan in order to cater to all students in mixed ability classes * they aren't confident of their own teaching abilities so they overplan * they don't want a miserable lesson so they overplan * they want to maintain an image of control
* they want to avoid their own failures * they were taught in their teacher education classes the importance of a "good lesson" and stick to that HOW TO ESCAPE THE LESSON PLANNING TRAP The trick to escaping from this trap is to write a lesson plan that is also true to your teaching style. Every teacher has a teaching style that is unique to him/her. In my ESL classrooms for example, I gradually introduced songs for teaching vocabulary. Since I am also a visual learner, I also brought lots of posters for brainstorming new themes and topics. Finally, I believe in cooperative teaching strategies and so, I differentiated instruction to include individual, pair and group work activities. PERSONALIZE THOSE LESSONS! But most of all I personalized lessons. Sometimes this personal element might create a nice spontaneity. Be open to that to happen too. It is part of the teaching/learning process. When I introduced my eighth grade students to student journal entries in their coursebook after reading about the earthquakes in Turkey, I brought in my own Snoopy journal from eighth grade and I read brief parts to them. (not private ones!) After this, usually most of my students were relaxed and it was time to do the main reading task of the lesson. They even asked me questions! After these lessons, I never got caught again in the lesson planning trap again because I avoided sticking to any formula of what is "a good lesson". When I knew what excited my students, I continued to build upon these experiences by doing something "beyond the box." So avoid the lesson planning trap today by using a few of these important lesson planning strategies. Stepping away from the formula of planning "a good lesson." Try this advice. I believe it will work for you.

New Teacher Tips - How to Become a Good Teacher
I always say that experience is the best teacher. Unfortunately, experience in the classroom works in odd ways for each individual teacher. The success of my personal journey was all about a series of ups and downs. Often at times, I was faced with impatient parents, troubling and sometimes difficult students and a system that went only so far as to support a teacher. Within this system, I have found the only way to cope by keeping a personal journal. It took me a very long time to learn to build a healthy dialogue with students, one that was not characterized by threats or frustration. The day finally came when I felt more comfortable in the classroom. Here's what was part of my overall recipe for my own personal survival and I guess you can say 'success': * * * * * personalized experiences, short stories, excerpts humor and pictures using drama, funny expressions (depending on the context) using my own jam and music style having fun and letting a bit of spontaneity in the classroom
But the real heart lay at relating to each student as an individual. Behind each kid's pestering jokes and snide and sometimes annoying comments, was a kid who really wanted to learn. I tried in spite of all this, to give each student a feeling of belonging in the language learning classroom And here's what else helped me: * * * * a good supportive group of [online] teachers a balanced lifestyle a good night's sleep lots of exercises
