PROGRESSION: Does your career give you your time back?

For solo workers, it can seem as if there is no clear path to career progression. For people in more traditional roles, progress is marked by a promotion, a bonus or a corner office. So do we need to start thinking about this differently? This week's guest James Mitra, founder of JBM (a values-driven executive search firm) and the host of the 40 Minute Mentor podcast, is here to help us change up our thinking. He advocates for thinking less about titles and salaries and more about ways to spend time with loved ones and the things that bring you joy.The 6th series of 40 Minute Mentor is available to listen to now. Hosted on Acast. See for more information.
