Knobull Research IDs Main Reasons For Career Path Changes

BOSTON - BostonChron -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "Have you ever quit a job, changed a class, or otherwise ended a professional  relationship because of a toxic person, insufficient pay, or simply because you're completely bored? This can be the path to improved success!"

The message from Knobull research is clear: If you spend your days on work that isn't really worth your creativity, effort, or time, leaving that situation might well be your first step toward greater success.

Here's a closer look at some of the results of Knobull research:

1. Non-challenging work.

Many of research subjects felt like they were doing "zombie work," --boring, repetitive, easy work that didn't take full advantage of their talents and capabilities. You may find yourself doing zombie work for one reason or another--especially if you have a small company where you need to do many different jobs.

2. Toxic people.

Some people are just hard to get along with. But if you're stuck with toxic people  in your work life, it can hold you back from achieving real satisfaction. That's because all of us, employees and especially entrepreneurs, need the help and support of the people we work with to advance our careers.

3. Not making enough money.

If you're otherwise happy with your current business or job, but you're not earning quite enough, it can be tempting to stick with what you know and try to cut expenses to make the economics work. But if you want complete satisfaction, you need an employer who's willing and able to pay you what you're worth--and that's especially true if your employer is you.

Bentley concluded, "The important point is that if you're in a situation where you are unchallenged, underpaid, or have to put up with toxic behavior--don't just grit your teeth and bear it. There's almost always something you can do to make it better, whether or not you actually revamp your strategy, leave a job, or make other major changes.
