1. Should I Stay or Should I Go? Knowing when it's time to leave your job Louise Neil & Kim Romain 35:53

Should I stay or should I go?

The Clash asked this important question back in 1981. It’s something we should all ask ourselves on a regular basis. Is this job, organization, project, relationship, or environment serving me? Can changes be made to make work for me? Or, should I just go?

Very often, leaving can be hard and painful, even if it’s leaving a circumstance that no longer serves us. Endings are hard. And knowing when to leave – before it gets to the point of toxic and damaging – is a skill worth learning.

This week, Kim and Louise dive into the heart of the matter and share thoughts on how to know when, prepare for, and take steps to leave a situation that is no longer serving you so you can step into your next level of growth and expansion.
