What Did You Want to Be When You Grew Up?
Hi, I’m Kimberly Hall, and I’m a Career & Life Coach for stressed out Middle Managers & Supervisors.
(And, I bet you never said, “I can’t wait to be a Middle Manager when I grow up!“)
How are you doing?
If you’re feeling like this…
Working in the middle is an exhausting balancing act, even when you like your job.
Being a Middle Manager or Supervisor is one of the most complicated positions in any organization.
And if you don’t like your job anymore and feel trapped or stuck or you’re having soul crushing thoughts about your dreams and goals slipping further and further out of reach, you’re likely also feeling confused, conflicted, scared, frustrated, anxious, overwhelmed, and maybe even burnt out.
If this is your experience right now, I’m sorry. I’ve been where you are and it’s a tough place to be. I was a Supervisor for 20 years in public service and experienced the best and worst parts of working in the middle. And when I knew something had to change, I resisted for a long time.
The uncertainty, doubt and bargaining with yourself, “I’ll make a change when….” that you’re experiencing right now, I know it very well.
This is what I also know for sure.
You aren’t defined by your job. Your dreams and goals are still within your reach. You can decide to pursue them anytime. They’re waiting for you to get started.
You don’t have to accept that this is just the way it is. If only you apply yourself and try harder, things will be better. You’re trying hard right now and things aren’t getting better.
At some point, the fear of staying where you are and how that makes you feel will scare you enough to take the first step out of your comfort zone.
Pay attention to your inner voice. It knows the way. Your thoughts and feelings are telling you that you are ready for change. You have everything you need to get started.
Our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

There is a process to change. I’ll hold you accountable and keep you on track as you work towards making the changes you seek a reality. You’ll discover qualities about yourself along the way, and when you trust the process and do the work, those discoveries will help you on the next steps of your journey.

Transform Your Life.
A dragonfly, in almost every part of the world, symbolizes new beginnings, change and transformation, self-realization, emotional maturity, and adaptability.
On the day I sent in my application to the coaching program at Rhodes Wellness College in Vancouver a few years ago, this dragonfly landed on my balcony, and stayed all night. (That never happened before…or since!) I took it as a sign that pursuing a new career as a Career and Life Coach was the beginning of a new adventure I needed at that stage of my life.
Curious things start to happen when you allow yourself to be open to possibilities. There’s space to pay attention to all the extra details around you. Life becomes richer. You never know where you’ll find inspiration.
Where will you find inspiration? (I’m excited to find out!)
