Finding The Difference Between Passion & Purpose
If there’s one common refrain when people give career advice, it’s something like: “Do what you’re passionate about.” But that advice may be way too simple, and may actually do more harm than good.
To find out more about how passion plays into our career choices, Liz and Rico reach out to Morten Hansen, a management professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and author of the book, “Great At Work.”
Then, Liz and Rico chat with listener Diane, who’s in the same boat as a lot of people out there, wondering whether there’s room to grow at her workplace. And in this week’s Bad Advice segment, we’ll discuss the concept of #NoFilter: sharing exactly what’s on your mind to your coworker, supervisor or boss, without tact or forethought about the consequences of not using a personal filter.
And later, we’ll hear from listener Carolyn, all the way from Belgium, who doesn’t quite know how to bring up the physical ailment of PMDD to her boss.
As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19.
