Podcast #179 – Marc works with “Phil” (not his real name) to pivot his career in the last of four episodes.
This is a 4-episode series where the first 2 episodes comprise the first feedback session. The next 2 episodes are the 2nd and 3rd feedback sessions. I do not record the 4th feedback session as it is a review and usually gets too personal for this podcast.
This week is the 4th episode of the Career Pivot evaluation series called “Can Phil Repurpose His Career?” This will be the fourth individual I have done this with.
Previously, I worked with Tim, Sarah, and Juan which are not their real names. This time it is Phil. Phil is in his early 60s, spent 20 years in the military, and spent the last 10 or so years in the private sector.
If you have not listened to the first three episodes in the series, I suggest you stop and go back and listen to episode 165, 166, and 169. In this episode, I take Phil through his Birkman Stress report where we will discuss Phil’s needs in 3 different areas and things he can do to stay out of stress.

This is a month-long process and you will be required to do a fair amount of introspection, but most people who have gone through this process have gained a great deal of insight into themselves. More importantly, they have learned how they changed their behaviors to fit in with work or society.
I know that personally, I learned that I twisted myself into a pretzel to make myself successful. Unfortunately, when I hit my 50s, it became exhausting.
Now on to the podcast…
STRESS OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS
The Stress Behaviors surrounding the area of interpersonal relations relate to the Self-Consciousness and Social Energy Components. Phil’s Stress scores in these areas are 79 (Self-Consciousness) and 4 (Social Energy).
Phil has a moderately high-stress score in self-consciousness which indicates he needs and wants respect in his relationships. He has a very low score in social energy which indicates he works best either by himself or with a small group to trusted colleagues.
