Navigating Your Career Journey Together

Career Transition Institute

Don’t Let the Dog Eat your Planner

As a coach to high-achieving professionals in transition, Pat Snyder completely understands clients who say, “I feel like I can’t take a break.” Then she urges them to take one.

“Building in positive, stress-relieving activities is part of the job search,” she says. “They broaden your perspective and keep you going for the long haul.” But she knows that taking time for yourself isn’t so easy. With family and friends constantly asking how the search is going, taking breaks can seem like slacking off.

Let Pat help you get over “slacker guilt” and tame the stress dog with 10 exercises validated by positive psychology researchers as mood boosters. 

Pat Snyder coaches attorneys and others in high-stress positions during periods of transition and career growth. She holds certifications from the International Coach Federation and Coaches Training Institute, as well as master’s degree in applied positive psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. When she’s not coaching others, she’s confessing her own missteps in a regular humor column, “Balancing Act,” for This Week papers in Columbus.
