Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job (video)


In this Expert Insight Interview, Darcy Eikenberg discusses her new book called Red Cape Rescue: Save Your Career Without Leaving Your Job. Darcy Eikenberg wrote this book because, as a coach and teacher, she watched too many talented professionals just like her waste their time and energy feeling like they had no control over their lives and work.

This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • Whether changing your job is the solution to your problems
  • How you can take back control of your life without changing everything
  • The fact that work is often blamed for other issues in our lives


Most people reach a stage of their career where they just think that everything around them sucks and they want to leave. Darcy is saying in her book that, although this might be a good time to switch careers, maybe you can also rescue what you have without leaving.

Our workplaces are so organic, with changes happening all the time. However, different changes affect us in different ways, so whenever we hit some kind of speedbump, we find ourselves stopping and thinking about whether the situation we’re in is what we really want. This happens in every single person’s career and often more than once.

Taking Back Control

Conventional wisdom tells us that when we do hit a speedbump, we should change something. For most people, this means it is time to look for another job. But the truth is, when we really dig into it and take it apart a little more, there are often maybe one or two core things that you have more control over than you ever realized.

This is the pattern that Darcy saw working with her clients, and she started to put together her ideas in the book around how you can take back control without having to change everything in your life.

Work as a Scapegoat

We often bring so many different things into our work life, and work can sometimes become a convenient scapegoat for all of those issues. We’re inclined to blame all of our problems on our job rather than looking at what is going on below the surface.

Darcy has seen people go through this pattern multiple times, quitting their jobs and using their skills to find something else. However, six to nine months in, the same issues often keep coming up, so nothing changes in the long run.
