You have an intense fear of being found out and that people will realise that you're not as good at your job as they think you are.

How to Set (the right!) Career Goals for 2024
When it comes to setting career goals, most people start in the wrong place. They sit down with a blank piece of paper and try to squeeze out a list of things they think they 'should' be doing over the next year. The result is that the goals remain some words on a bit of paper that have no real meaning and you certainly don't take any action towards achieving them.  In this episode of The Career Confidence Podcast, I share a different approach to gaol setting. I talk about: The power of reflecting on the year just gone. Filters you can use to check if you have the right goals. How to make your goals SMARTER (don't be put off by SMART goals, they shouldn't be your starting point but used properly, a SMART filter can be a gamechanger).

How to Learn to Trust Yourself
In today’s episode, I am talking about how to learn to trust yourself. It’s a big topic and it’s an important one. What I am noticing is that for a lot of my clients, there is a huge amount of pushing, on their part, to come up with the "right" answer about what should come next for their career.  Often we lose that ability to trust in ourselves. Maybe we have made a mistake or a project or piece of work hasn’t gone as well as we wanted it to. Maybe we’ve made a career move in the past that hasn’t turned out how we wanted it and we are feeling bruised and battered and struggling to trust that we will make the right decisions about our own future. Sometimes we might lose that trust because other people have called it into question. Perhaps other people have criticised us and that causes us to question whether or not we are doing the right thing. In this episode, I share some thoughts and advice about trusting that: You will come up with the "right answer" You will be brave enough to take the action needed to help bring your career vision to life You do know what is right for you.

How to Switch Off From Work When You Are On Holiday
Taking time off from work is good for us. It gives us an opportunity to reset and we return more creative and productive. However, according to a study by Tots 4 Travel, it takes people, on average 46 hours and 42 minutes to feel relaxed on holiday. If you’ve taken a week off work that means it’s taking you more than 25% of your time to unwind and feel relaxed. Today I am going to share with you 5 tips to help you to reduce that timeframe so that you can unwind, slip into relaxation mode and switch off from work.

5 Steps to Stop Procrastinating and Take Control of Your Career
Hands up who procrastinates and puts off making decisions about their career? If you could see me now, you would see that I have both hands in the air. They say that you teach what you most need to learn and I know that there are times that I procrastinate rather than taking control of my career.

Why You Don’t Need to Leave Your Current Job to Have a Great Career (and How to do it)
When I talk to potential clients, they often assume that my focus will be on encouarging them to find another job.  This is not always the case.

How to Use Your Intuition to Make Career Decisions
How do you make decisions about your career? Are you a rational thinker that spends hours researching organisations and opportunities, writing lists of pros and cons and analysing opportunities in forensic detail? Or do you trust your intuition and go with your gut? I believe that when it comes to making decisions about our career (or anything for that matter) then we need to use a combination of rational thinking and intuition. I find that lots of my clients spend so much time going through the rational decision making process that they can get stuck in their head and don’t trust that they are able to come up with the right answers for themselves. I can relate to this. I worked with a mentor about a decade ago who used to tell me that I need to stop overanalysing things and to tune into my intuition. She used to drive me crazy (in the nicest possible way!) because while I agreed with her, I had no idea how to tune in to my intuition. I've done a lot of work over the years to get better at listening to my inner voice and trusting what it has to tell me. Now when I have a decision to make about my career I do still go through that rational decision making process but I always, always, always check in with what I believe to be the right answer before committing to anything.  In this episode of The Career Confidence podcast I share: What is intuition and how you can use it to make career decisions Why so many people struggle to tune in to your intuition Tips to help you learn how to listen to your intution I hope that you listen and enjoy the episode and try some of the techniques for yourself.   I'd love to hear how you get on and also the impact using your intuition has on your career decisions.

Frustrated by lack of career development? Listen to this
A few weeks ago, I shared a post on Linked In which got a lot of traction. The post read:  This might ruffle some feathers but....  You've got to take responsibility for your own career.  I speak to people (at all levels!) who feel miffed because their line manager hasn't booked their performance review. Yet when I ask, they have made no proactive attempt to get that meeting in the diary. I speak to people (at all levels!) who feel that they are overlooked at work and are never the first choice for interesting opportunities. Yet when I ask, they have made no proactive attempt to get involved in those interesting opportunities. I speak to people (again, at all levels!) that are waiting to be told what their next role might be. Yet when I ask, you guessed it!!! They have made no proactive attempt to seek out that role for themselves. It's your career. You need to take control.  What really struck me were the number of people getting in touch to say they understood where I was coming from with the post but they just did not know how to take control of their career.  I often find that people are frustrated and sometimes angry and disgruntled about their current work situation but they are just waiting for somebody to come and wave a magic wand to make the situation better for them.  In this episode of the podcast, I share advice on how you can proactively seek out development opportunities so that you can move forward in your career.  About Nicola Semple I help people to build their career confidence and achieve their career goals.
