How do you feel about your job? Love it? Hate it? Wish it were different?

So often, women come to me wanting a NEW job. A true and aligned purpose – and I love supporting that.

AND, sometimes, we can make your current job your
DREAM job.

Is your job aligned with your inner values and connected with your personal strengths?

Does it allow you to pursue your purpose? If you answered to ‘no’ any of these questions, I wouldn’t be surprised. That is where I used to be in my job and now that I know what the opposite feels like (I LOVE being PurposeGirl!) I know I can never go back! Research has proven that 60 to 70% of people don’t
feel engaged to their jobs and working environment – and this number is likely higher this year because of COVID-19.

But hold on! Before you decide to quit, give yourself a moment to breathe, to take some time off, and ask yourself some meaningful questions that will allow you to really uncover what actually turn you on at work. Sometimes, it is not about
changing the work you do, but switching your own perspective about it. This episode is all about loving the job YOU ALREADY HAVE.


In this episode of The PurposeGirl Podcast, I’m fortunate to be joined by Carson Tate, founder and managing partner of Working Simply, Inc., a business consulting firm that partners with organizations, business leaders and employees to enhance workplace productivity, foster employee engagement, and build
personal and professional legacies. Carson shares with us her 5 pillars to “Job Crafting,” and explains in detail how reframing your point of view – if you are a positive psychology gal like me, you’ll know this also as mindset! - can have a major positive effect on your own job satisfaction and the satisfaction of your
coworkers and your bosses. In her very own words: “Any job can be your dream job, because you define the dream.”

In this episode, Carson and I dig in on:

  • How to do “Job Crafting” – making any job one you love
  • Carson’s 5 pillars to job crafting
  • How to ASK for anything you want from your boss, partner, or anyone!
  • How important recognition is, and how to get more of it (‘cause you deserve it, love!).
  • How to distinguish the tasks we like to from those we don’t – clarity creates opportunity!
  • How to make your job more meaningful
  • How we’re all threatened by things like autonomy and fairness and and how to use it to your advantage.

You can connect with Carson on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. And you can check out both her personal
website and company website. Don’t forget to check out her newest book! Own It. Love It. Make It Work: How To Make Any Job Your Dream Job.
