I am facing uncertainty in my employment and career, what is your advice for having a strong transition mindset?

Despite the best planning and preparation – which are essential to success – donning the “right” mindset is perhaps the most important aspect to thriving in transition and beyond! No matter how comprehensive your plan, the road will not always be smooth. Plan on encountering these three “un’s” throughout your journey:

· The Unknown: How will I know what is ‘right’ when it comes to making career decisions?

· The Unexpected: How will I handle unwelcome surprises in my professional or personal journey?

· The Uncertain: How will I react to questions, opportunities, or challenges I did not anticipate?
