Why Do We Feel So Stuck at Work?

On What’s Your Work Fit we pose this viewer question: Why Do We Feel So Stuck at Work?

Answering that question and others is our guest, Denise Brouder

Denise is the Founder of SWAY and a globally recognized flexible work skills expert

This week’s lead question was posed by What’s Your Work Fit? viewer Erik:

Erik is Product Support Manager at a NYC-area based health tech firm. For the past couple of years he has exceeded management’s expectations. Erik says it was easy to succeed and to be recognized favorably. He adds: the part of the day that included work felt like fun. 

But in the Fall of 2023 Erik lost his mojo. Something felt different and not in a good way. 

Further, he began to question the purpose of the work that he does, wondering: is my role fulfilling beyond the paycheck? 

Erik is stuck. And he knows, from conversations he’s had, that he is not the only one out there feeling this way. 

So, Erik asks: Why Do We Feel So Stuck at Work?

During this information packed episode, we revisit Denise’s October 2022 answer to the question “what’s your work fit?’ Her personal vision surely will resonate with many career professionals.
