How and When to Disrupt Your Career, and Yourself (Quick Study) reviews

Added to wishlistRemoved from wishlist 0



If you’re comfortable but bored at your current position, you’re in the danger zone. Here are some ways to keep growing without leaving your company.

Whitney Johnson, an executive coach and author of “Disrupt Yourself”, says we give a lot of airtime to building disruptive products and services, to buying and/or investing in disruptive companies, and we should. Both are vital engines of economic growth. But, the most overlooked engine of growth is the individual. If you are really looking to move the world forward, begin by innovating on the inside, and disrupt yourself.

    Love what I do and the company I work for. Tons of upside…Only challenge is my Manager is not my advocate.

    these words have been exactly how I have felt with my previous company. great people, great work life balance, good pay, great job overall, except I was getting deathly bored. Looking back I should have asked to do different roles within the organization but didn't want to do more work because of my complacency, so I chose to leave, which in turn was probably more work to do.

    The way my old company messed me about when I had reached this point of boredom and tried to relocate to a different, more international office (over a year of false promises and veiled threats) broke my connection with the concept of a job and especially my emotional connection to the job that I had loved. More importantly it obliterated a sense of 'naivety' (I know that the corporate world is not a fairy tale but I think people need to have some faith in what they are a part of. I don't even have faith in what I hear from my lecturers).
    I work for myself now and while I am good at what I do, I have never felt the excitement I had before.
    I think it's important to remember that your boss or supervisor might not always have your interests at heart and may actually be actively working to sabotage any plans. As a professional or employee you need to identify someone to trust with your professional / career strategy

    It is interesting to know the concept of S-curve. I might get into the top of S-curve for current org. Need to re-define our mission and think about the innovative and disruptive way of contribution.

    Exactly how I’m feeling right now. Glad I found this! Im falling ill 🤧 more than often, have lost all motivation in the work I love, and not grooming the people who I lead. All of this is adding upto massive amounts of guilt and my credibility is taking a hit. Guess it’s time to have this conversation

    Huh… I just left my old company where I was at the top of the S curve and now in a new one where I'm clearly at the bottom and everything feels challending.
    Hearing about this "S curve" notion totally makes sense. Thanks for making this video. I feel a lot more confident now.

    I think the challenge here is often there is not an incentive to jump on a new S curve. If the culture of the company rewards you for sitting in your position at no risk, many would take that and have enough leisure to consider this a good option. The responsibility for the company should be to gently coerce people to move roles within a certain time frame. And if they don't, the 'gentle' becomes progressively less gentle.

    I'm in sales and I want to jump into a branding / marketing role. And all I hear is you don't have the required experience, sorry.

    I'm trying to upskill myself. Get indicators of skill via certifications and try again

    I'm saving this one. You perfectly described how I am feeing which lead to me taking another job outside of my current job. No future roles for me to move to so I moved on.

    One question: How do we justify that the move is good for the company and we will help them solve the problems when a considerable amount of learning is involved? Use of transferable skills or else?

    I wish I would’ve done this in my previous role and just stayed at my old job versus going to a new company. It hasn’t been a pleasant experience and just doesn’t feel like the best fit.
