How do be a career visionary with Judy Garfinkel
30:26Career success is accelerated when we, as individuals, are in alignment with the work we do: it gives us purpose, plays to our strengths, is enjoyable and more. When we find ourselves “suited” to our work, it becomes easier to do, excel and be rewarded. And when we know what alignment looks like, we can plan our career, to get more of what we want. But finding alignment, and planning for success, isn’t a given. And that’s where this podcast comes in. Judy Garfinkel, an executive coach and President of ICF Connecticut Chapter, sits with Angela and Sergey, to discuss what she has learnt in her career about how to seek alignment and plan for success. ----- Music credits: Our Big Adventure by Scott Holmes
