Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

Transcript:

I really want you to take that to heart, because I talk with so many people who are feeling trapped and I often say to them “If you feel trapped, you are trapped.” The feeling itself is a sign that, in your own mind, you have trapped yourself in this situation and you don’t think you have a way out. Guess what? You need to find — you need to do hard thinking again — and find a way out. Yes?

Student: I can’t help but think about relationships, too (missing) What if you depend on what is trapping you?

Welch: Ah, co-dependance? That’s what it is. It really is.

Student: Emotionally and ????

Welch: You need to find a replacement for that. Because there are good relationships and there are bad relationships. There are relationships where you are trapped by your partner where they manipulate you in various ays. They mentally abuse you. Whatever.

Student: Even if there just not reciprocating.

Welch: Right! They trap you in that. If someone is not reciprocating, what’s the best decision you need to make for yourself? You need to decide, if you’ve ome to that realization, banging your head against that wall is not going to work — is not serving yourself any better. You need to make the hard decision for yourself and move on.

Transcript:

Now, right now, beyond having your own blog and your own web site, There are certain properties that are just hot. They’ve got the heat right now.  Facebook is one of them. Facebook is a site –all these services have their own kind of vibe, collection of people there. For me, Facebook is mainly family and friends. it’s not really business-oriented at all, although I do have Facebook pages for each of my public facing — each of my blogs, for example, has it’s Facebook page, which goes along with it. That’s more of business, public-facing, type thing, but for my day-to-day Facebook use, its friends and family. I use it to communicate with my wife’s relatives in Sicily and other friends we have scattered all over the world. Something like, LinkedIn, which you were talking about earlier. Very button down, very professional and very, you kno, these are professional friends that I am networking with or acquaintances that I am networking with and so that can be another set of friends there. The reason you use multiples of these — so, let me see Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr, if you like Tumble, if that’s your thing. There’s a variety of other services. Honestly, you will find those that work best for you or that feel best to you.

Transcript:

The reciprocal nature of means that it should benefit each of you equally as much as it possibly can. There’s a give and a take. We end up trapped in situations because we’ve decided to do what others want, not what we want. We get that feeling of being trapped when we would just, really, be wishing to do something else — anything else, but we can’t make the decision. We’re letting that other person make the decision for us and I know, that is one of my worst feelings. if I feel I’m trapped, I will actually do dramatic things to not be trapped any longer. I will — for me, it’s a — I guess I’ve learned over the years — that that’s a trigger point with me now. If I feel trapped then — boom — that’s a clear red flag up the flag pole — get out NOW! Because if you feel that way, that is your mind telling you something very, very important. You are in a bad situation and only you can extricate yourself from that situation. Get out! No matter what it takes. it will only drag you further and further down, the longer you remain in that situation.

Transcript:

Because, the reason we have a blog is…we need to share what we know — what we do and how well we do it — to go back to that again — we need to share that with people. Oftentimes, we don’t share what we do, because we simply don’t have a place to put it. It’s like “well, do I put it on Facebook or do I post it over here or…? Well, if you set up a blog, all of a sudden, now you have a place to put stuff and what I’ve found is if you have a place to put stuff, guess what? You find stuff to put there. It’s kind of a “chicken and the egg” sort of scenario. You think, “Well, what do I have to post?” Then, all of a sudden, you have the site set up and “Oh, yeah, I could post that neat piece of art I did. I could put that over there. I could talk about art therapy. I have some thoughts about that I could put there.” You find all these things that suddenly, well, now I have a home for and Ok. Let’s start to put that stuff out there and that’s exactly what you should be doing, by the way.

Time to take action from the Career Opportunities Podcast [Archive] [Audio]

Time to take action from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

Over the last months I have been concentrating on what you need to be thinking about during the economic downturn. Today, though, I want to talk about what you should also be doing. Sometimes fear can cause us to seize up, like a deer in the headlights, instead of focusing on action. It is time to take action for the sake of you and your career. Whether you are recently laid off or still at work, here are some action items to focus on.

First, just because others are being laid off doesn’t mean that opportunities don’t exist for you. With less staff and cost-cutting, some companies may be looking to hire more freelancers to fill the holes in their organization. Freelancers carry less of a burden in benefits and bonuses, even though they might require slightly higher salaries. If you have been thinking of striking out on your own, this could be the time to do it. Sure, it might be a bit more frightening to try freelancing now, but if you can find a diverse collection of clients, it is certainly a possibility. Freelancing in a down period also puts you in place to be offered a full time position once the economy recovers, should you wish.

Transcript:

There’s a large difference between being loyal and being trapped. It took me a lot of thinking to come up with this. This is a pretty loaded topic, too. “Loyalty and Loyalty to the company. Loyalty to your spouse and…” The fact is, loyalty has one important aspect that must be there or it does not work. Loyalty must be reciprocal. it must be equal on both sides. If it is not equal — if someone is always winning and someone is always losing — that’s not loyalty. You’re just being abused. Your good nature, often, is being abused, by that company, that person or whatever. Loyalty should always be a situation of equality — at least as much as it can be. Yes, of you’re getting a paycheck from someone it skews the whole thing, but within that odd realm, there should be a feeling that they’re not just going to discard you tomorrow on a whim.
