The Great Career Paradox (When Pursuing Career Success May Not Lead To Career Happiness)



Why are some people with highly successful careers… still unhappy in life?

At the pinnacle of their careers and lauded by many for their achievements, they struggle to find joy in the work they do. To fill this void, they drive their careers even harder, only to feel more isolated and frustrated.

Therein lies The Great Career Paradox of our time – that contrary to popular belief, Career Success does not always create Happiness, and might even have an opposite effect!

This lack of Career Fulfilment is a key driving force fueling the mass exodus of staff in many organisations today.

How can individuals achieve Career Happiness? What can employers do to engage their teams to improve retention?

Having coached thousands of Executives, Authors Adrian and Yen were piqued by this Paradox and combined their experiences in Headhunting, Consulting and Coaching to unlock the Secrets to Career Happiness.

In-depth interviews and massive surveys were conducted with Business Leaders and Executives and they created a new Career Framework based on Career Strategy™ and Career Agility™.

Correctly executed, these concepts will help you navigate your life journey and ultimately achieve meaningful Career Success.
