…there’s nothing left to learn.

…there are no opportunities to contribute on projects that you care about.

…you can’t let your unique abilities loose.

…the majority of your day is spent performing tasks that serve no greater purpose.

…your efforts go unrecognised despite doing your best to promote yourself, your work, your project in a humble and professional way.

…your boss speaks poorly of you to their bosses and others to cover up their own under performance.

…the culture is toxic.

…there is no chance for career development ie. more responsibility, acting up, secondment, promotion, leading important projects etc.

…the organization sees leadership as being about titles and positions, instead of values and behaviors.

…Monday mornings are the worst.

…you’re not getting paid enough to make ends meet.

…you can’t not start a business or grow your side hustle.

How about you? How do you know when it’s time to look for another opportunity? Comment below.
