Knowing When to Switch to Plan B

Change is not just something I blog about or help individuals and organizations deal with. It is something I struggle with myself each day. My experiences - good, bad, and in process - inform my coaching and executive transition management work. I changed cities and business environments about 2 years ago and have been working hard to get traction in my new locale. I have made progress but not enough to satisfy my career goals. So it is time for Plan B, which includes renewing relationships with clients and colleagues back in New York City, where I lived for more than 20 years. I will be in New York for a few days each month going forward. The prospects look promising.

As you consider your business goals, it is important to be realistic about the probability of success. Of course, you should give it your best shot. There may come a point of diminishing returns, however. Being flexible is key. There is more than one road to success.
