I saw a poster in the tube at the end of 2016 that said “Thanks 2016, it’s been weird”. I think it is fair to say things got progressively weirder from then on.
2020 brought so much fear, mourning, anxiety and struggle but people are emerging in 2021 with the realisation that this year means so much as individuals and also communities. On a global scale now is the time to address issues such as climate change. In 2020 the hole above the Artic actually closed. It shouldn’t have taken a global pandemic to achieve this but can we sustain this progress once the pandemic is over? This year and the next will decide. On a personal level people are experiencing the need for positive change. Individuals are realising what is important to them and acting. No more waiting. No more procrastinating. Now is the time that changes are being made to make their lives more fulfilling, rewarding and purposeful.
Never before have there been so many resources available to help achieve this change. As part of that change those with the skills have trained to help guide people through those decisions – life coaches, career advisers, professional coaches, recruiters etc. If you’re looking for change, start by opening the door to guidance with making the decisions you need to make and taking the steps you need to take. At William Scott Associates we are here as individuals but also as part of the recruitment community to support you in the direction you choose to take. We are happy to discuss options that are available to you, steps needed to reach your goals and make 2021 count for you.
