“I lie when they ask me about my career aspirations.”
This is what a friend of mine recently told me. She’s in a strategic role with a large organization that is very focused on internal growth.? That’s amazing, right?  Well for my friend, she’s happy right where she is. She has a nice salary and can close shop and hang with her kids at 4pm. She is super driven but doesn’t want the stress or time commitment that comes with a bigger role. If anything, she would want a lateral move in a different direction. But she’s afraid to say that. ➡️ Honest communication is one of the most important things we can have at work. If you want to stay put for awhile, that’s ok. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. And if your employer can’t understand your honest reasons, maybe it’s time to find one that does. Has this happened to you?
