Is covid-19 impacting your thoughts around your career?
The covid-19 pandemic is still here. I am reading of fatalities in their thousands across the globe.

Well-being is higher on the agenda for some. And then there are our careers.
With many firms furloughing staff and news of redundancies, conversations about shorter weeks or reduced pay, you can't help but think about your career. Even business owners, in my experience, are wondering if they should now be applying for a job. Those who had secured a new job are curious, and worried, about whether they have a job to go to. Those in what's been a secure job are anxious about whether they will be stuck or still experience career progression.
