Are you a busy and passion driven person working in a language department? Maybe you are forced to work long hours, you have a heavy workload and you worry about failure, stress or the possibility of losing your job? Maybe you have been thinking for ages to change job?
I’ve had the experience of managing large teams with no resources and changing my career due to acute stress. I understand the difficulties and fears that academic professionals have when dealing with heavier and heavier workloads, unreasonable demands, considering a career change to survive.
I want to help you manage the situation and take charge of unreasonable requests, help you prepare for a career change, if that is what you want.
I have valuable tips and insights to share, plus I know first-hand how rewarding a career change can be.
