Learn how to change careers with confidence using our Decide Guide.Does the idea of changing careers continue to cloud your thoughts? Maybe you are experiencing a number of emotions on the job...

  • Everyday tasks seem routine and lack challenge, or
  • Your manager's decisions don't make sense, or seem outright WRONG, or
  • Every day you are pressured to deliver on a mountain of tasks without any regard to quality or value!

Work has lost its meaning and you wonder...

Is it worth the effort to work through a career change decision?

This will shock you. If you would like your next career to last ten years (it used to be a lifetime) the average value of the career change selection in the United States is approximately $425,000! (based on the 2008 Bureau of Labor Statistics average income of $42,500). And, this only considers the tangible value of this choice.

What about doing something meaningful and fulfilling? Can you put a value on that? Wouldn't it be helpful to gain from the knowledge of others to learn how to change careers effectively? Wouldn't it be worth thousands to get this decision right?

Ready to choose your next career? You are not alone...

Statisticians will tell you to expect to have 3 careers in your life (a number that life coaches say is really 4 to 7 as the notion of corporate loyalty disappears into history and technology drives constantly evolving skill sets).

Making this major life choice can bring up a lot of questions:

  • Can I afford to make a career change now?
  • How do I know if a career will be right for me?
  • Is my desire to change careers being motivated by something else?
  • Will I have to go back to school to get the skills needed for a new career?
  • How long will it take to attain the career I want?
  • Will I be able to find a career that has meaning?
  • Is it possible to learn how to change careers with CONFIDENCE?

We know how confusing and overwhelming it can be... because Gary and I have both been there. That's what motivated us to apply what we have learned from over 15 years of research in decision management and decision making to this high value life choice.

"Gary and Keith have written a highly read-able, highly use-able, and highly useful book on choosing one's next career. I've read a number of books on the subject and had developed my own guidelines for choosing a career, but now I'm preparing to cut to the chase and simply recommend my clients buy Gary & Keith's book, and then spend time working through it in our sessions!"

Wouldn't you want to know how to change careers in a way that could avoid emotional decision making mistakes?

Image of career change optionsMaking a career change decision can create strong emotions that can lead to common mistakes that include:

  • Not making the decision at all. Indecision is an overwhelming problem for many people. They are often too afraid to proceed.
  • Choosing too quickly without knowing why, and then creating rational reasons to justify a poor emotional decision.
  • Overriding rational decision making in cases where it is clearly needed.
  • Creating mistakes due to distortions and bias in judgments, sometimes leading to unexpected and reckless action.
  • Errors that take place because we are subject to systemic inaccuracy about how we will feel in the future.

Why consider 5 to 9 options when you are ready to choose your next career? It turns out this number can help you avoid two additional decision making errors, namely:

  • Tunnel vision with too few alternatives due to the desire to rush to judgment.
  • Analysis paralysis with too many options that exceed our ability to keep track of them.

"DECIDE GUIDE is a practical resource for making career decisions at any stage of life. Thorough in its scope, it leads the reader through a logical process with detailed, relevant questions presented in user-friendly worksheets. The electronic version is replete with clickable links to useful information and additional resources.

The authors draw upon a wealth of professional experience and knowledge; use the guide alone, or couple it with personal career counseling from the authors themselves. I recommend it not only for those considering a career change, but for college students (and their parents) as they consider their life's work."

Dr. Robin J. Kohl, Professor and Educational Consultant

Is there a better way to deal with a career change decision?

To start with, recognize that it is completely normal to feel a wide range of feelings when approaching this kind of change. How to change careers is not something we learn in school, adding lack of knowledge to an already emotionally challenging choice.

Getting advice from friends can help, but they are fully engaged with their own lives, making it hard to get to the deep and thoughtful consideration that this decision deserves.

Going to the library is an option, but where do you start? Should you take personality tests, explore new industries, or look at new education options?

How long will it take to figure this out? You could start searching the internet and experience instant information overload with thousands of tips on changing careers. But do you really want to spend more of your time and energy sorting through the maze to get to the nuggets that will really help?

Wouldn't it be nice to have everything you need to walk through this decision, step by step, in one place... presented in a way you can understand it?
