I have a dilemma and am not sure what to do. I am currently working at my used-to-be dream workplace but things haven’t been going so well. My performance has been bad (started during Covid and has always been virtually, switched my career focus to something completely new). My coach and I are in the process of switching me to another team, which could potentially be a good fit for me. Though, I am not sure when that will be since there is currently no business need based on the conversations.
