The Fertile Time between One Career and the Next
Successful careers – for some – culminate as a CEO or as a Partner in a professional services firm or as a leader in government. Careers like these can bring great rewards at a number of levels. However, as we all see from time to time, career success can come with costs, in terms of relationships, health, stress, and behaviour change.
Senior roles are most often built on an all-consuming investment of time, energy and self (in all but exceptional individuals). The intensity of this effort can also squeeze out the essential space needed to navigate what work should mean in the different phases, or passages of our lives.
