Have you quit a job?

Like a marriage or divorce, the end of a job — and even the relationship itself — can be a traumatic experience, leaving you questioning fundamentals of who you are, what you stand for, and what you want.

Have you quit a job?

My client, we’ll call her Elaine, quit a job she called an abusive relationship. While she was working 70 hour weeks and struggling, those around her were not. They were dumping work and obligations on her. They did not hear or listen or act on her concerns about work balance and task sharing. Her health and mindset were suffering. She believed there was no escape and no workable resolution. She left for her own psychological safety and health.

At her new job, she works a more “normal” schedule and wonders if she’s underutilized. While she receives positive feedback, she feels maybe she could do more.

Abusive relationships have a long-term impact and can leave us with unproductive and self-limiting beliefs long after the relationship ends, no matter who ends the relationship.

Hi, I’m Dylan Cornelius.
I was passed over for promotions four times in three years, every time passed over by a peer. My marriage was a wreck. I was obese and my doctor threatened to medicate me if I didn’t lose weight.
When I calculated the per-hour value of my overtime at work, the additional money in my bonus didn’t justify the costs to my health, relationships, and personal satisfaction.
After five years of hearing me complain, my brother told me to stop complaining or do something about it. I was stunned that it had been so long.
After a long and expensive search, I realized the quality of my relationships was poor and I wasn’t taking care of other people or myself.
When I committed to creating fantastic relationships and high-performing teams in every area of my life that mattered, my life transformed.
I was promoted. Now I’m picked to lead teams and frequently thanked for my contribution.
While my marriage didn’t survive, I met an amazing woman who trained me for my first two marathons, and now I do triathlons for fun. I lost 50 pounds and controlled my diet, allergies, and autoimmunity.
Now my “Honey Bunny” and I tour for weeks at a time on a tandem bike. Soon, we’ll cross countries and continents.
I created a Team Acceleration Blueprint based on my personal development journey and decades of education and experience building and leading teams at some of the best universities and companies on the planet.
I believe the world can work for everyone. It starts with clarity of purpose, fantastic relationships, and high-performing teams. I intend to help 10,000 people create an unfair advantage and achieve results they didn’t believe were possible too.
