I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often.

I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension.

Has anyone ever gone on short term disability leave for their firm and then quit after? I’m highly depressed and I’m considering it to job hunt.

For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification. After being laid off in May, I decided to pursue my coaching business full time. My question is, for those who have sought out coaching, which area of your life did you focus on first and why?

I’ve been in industry before. Bounced back to consulting after realizing that it’s challenging working in an environment that appreciates mediocrity and nepotism (but hey, nepotism is everywhere). A very small % of my network seems to enjoy the move from consulting or IB into industry. Even one of my clients went back to consulting (as partner) after 10 years. Does anyone in this bowl who has made the move to industry actually like their new role? (assuming you’re still lingering here...)
