Want to find your dream job? You need to understand your Career Anchor. Edgar Schein at MIT came up with 8 and after taking a 40 question assessment, I came out being “Security/Stability.” While I was hoping to be “Lifestyle” where I balance personal and professional, I always have preferred a job that I am happy doing, and one that is secure. Doing my job, and doing it well are my measures of security aside from the company’s stability and reputation. I have co-owned a restaurant “Patrik’s Culinary Kreations” and currently a bakeshop “Simply Sweet Kreations,” one would think “Entrepreneurial Creativity” would have been my top Anchor. While I do like the proposition of retiring and owning my own business, the initial startup can be risky and I don’t mind this as a secondary source of income, but until established, would not be my only job.
Hope you have all been enjoying the nice weather. I did not need to wear a coat today! 🙂
