Logic Of The Day: 03.09.2018.
C. Your values no longer align with the company.
Startups are forced to pivot all the time. Even established companies have to change the way they do business and how they operate in response to external — or internal — forces.
If your organization’s vision has changed and your values no longer align, then you’re not doing yourself or anyone else a favor by staying.
This is where it becomes important to do some soul searching and self-reflection on your strengths and weaknesses. Maybe you were perfect for your current role a couple years ago, but have circumstances changed? Have you changed?
Research has shown that the more essential someone’s job is to their company, the happier they tend to be with their work. If you’ve reached a stage where you realize your skills and abilities aren’t as in tune with the organization’s mission as they used to be, then it may be time to start looking for a new role.
In this situation, it might make sense to leave your company. But you can also explore whether a transfer within the company — to a new position with different responsibilities — could alleviate the dissonance. The trick is to find where your interests, skill sets, and values all intersect.
If you can find a role that meets those criteria, not only will you be happier and more productive, but you’ll push yourself to grow as a person.
