Focus on What Hasn't Changed

Sometimes, when you’ve been in your role for a while, it doesn’t seem like anything changes.  Work may become mundane or, perhaps, less challenging, especially when you have seen few prospective opportunities.  And, then…



Everything changes.  



A leader resigns.  A co-worker is…

Recruiters, Anecdotally
