It’s easy to make situations more complicated than they really
are…and it comes down to clarity. Clarity of our values and our
preferences. These two things (values and preferences) remove
extraneous information that we put the wrong amount of weight on.
First and foremost, is __you fill in the blank__ worth while? Does
it support our path? Is it something that gives us experience to
move us toward our goals? Lots of questions to think about. Jessica
Dewell hosts Don’t Give Up, Just Quit with co-host Stephanie Sims.
Starting the conversation…
- Attitudes (and emotions about) giving up vs quitting.
- Justifications and stakeholder perspectives.
- Is it ok to quit?
Jessica Dewell Co-host:
What You Will Hear:
Does quit equate to failure? Right, wrong, and quitting. Equality
(and respect) in relationships. We must know our personal values to
make the best decisions for us. When we take things too personally.
Delivering deliverables. To the detriment of everyone around us…we
keep doing something that makes us crazy. Tips for how to plan for
interactions and avoid avoidance by being busy. How to set
expectations, and what to do when it seems like we’re too far down
the path. Change with new information vs starting over because of
doubt. Where our self worth and quitting intersect. Being our own
advocate starts with boundaries. Values are the points we connect
on, and shared meaning matters. When we are curious and watch how
employees ‘show up’ reflect a leader’s leadership impact. Ambition
and quitting. And, when processes are stifling. A single objective.
Notable & Quotable:
Stephanie Sims: What do we do to feel better [about a situation]
where we have no power? Jessica Dewell: What path I am on, what
path they are on, and when we realize they are no longer the same.
Stephanie Sims: Evaluate the respect of our commitments and
realizing we don’t receive an equal level of respect. Jessica
Dewell: When we don’t have our values written down, we lack a
filter to prioritize and evaluate situations. Stephanie Sims: We
can allow our personal values impinge inside our company decisions,
and it causes problems. Jessica Dewell: We all must network. And,
we can plan how we want our interactions to go. Jessica Dewell:
Preparation is a type of action. Stephanie Sims: There is a huge
difference between a well targeted networking meeting to connect
with people that are useful to you in your business and collecting
business cards. Stephanie Sims: Everyone is different in how they
make decisions is different. Processes and procedures give a
framework to make decisions. Stephanie Sims: Fear can be mistaken
for intuition. Jessica Dewell: We must be our own advocate. Jessica
Dewell: When we are not strong in our values, quitting is the easy
way out. Stephanie Sims: It requires a lot of self-esteem to manage
to values. Jessica Dewell: Ambition is intertwined to our ability
to connect to others. Stephanie Sims: Being bold is knowing [that
to quit] is the right thing to do.
