Revisiting and Refreshing Our Social Work Purpose and Goals



As a Social Work Career Empowerment Coach, integrity and transparency are important to me. We talk a lot about procrastination as a form of self-sabotage. Want to know how else my self-sabotage has shown its head over the years? Overthinking, over-researching, and over-planning without taking calculated risks and concrete actions. I’ve given them up!

CAREER TIP: Take Strategic Action. There is no success without it.

STRATEGIC ACTION: Join me for “You Can’t Pour From An Empty Cup: Self-Love, Self-Care, and Self-Preservation for Women in Social Work”, on Thursday, July 27, 2023, from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

** FLASHBACK FRIDAY BLOG: What Does My TV Viewing Say About Me and My Coaching?

I was watching other people live the dreams that were in my soul.

I’m now actively moving in the direction of my authentic self, my big dream, and my God-given purpose. Don’t worry, Nicki Sanders Leadership Consulting still fits in the matrix.

I know what it’s like to get so busy you have little time to focus on your dreams.

I know what it’s like to live in survival mode so you’re afraid to focus on your dreams.

I know what it’s like to dim your light and fall into the background so no one can question your dreams.

I see you. I feel you. I understand you.

I also want to challenge you because I know those feeling that way SUCK and that it doesn’t have to be that way. Your dreams deserve you and you deserve your dreams.

If you’re also ready to stop putting your dreams on hold, let’s chat about how On My Terms Leadership Development Program can assist you in taking specific and concrete actions.

IT’S YOUR TIME! IT’S GO TIME!  (Read the full, original blog using the link above.)
