Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Are you a current or aspiring leader who feels stuck in your career?

If so, you’re not alone.

But thankfully, there are six strategies you can implement to unstick yourself from your career and find a way to move forward.

1. Ask why. It's easy to feel stuck. But ask yourself why you feel stuck in your current role or your current environment and get to the root of the problem.

2. Focus more on who you work with and less on the dollar figure and the brand name.

3. Be open to the possibility of making a lateral or even a backwards move so that you can then make a forward move.

4. Have an honest conversation with your leader. If you feel stuck, talk with your leader and explain your feelings. Maybe you can both do something that makes you feel unstuck.

5. Take a step back and really define where you want to go.

6. When all else fails, consider quitting. The worst thing you can do is be complacent and simply feel like you're stuck without taking any kind of action. But the best thing you can do is act.
