after four years in my current role and a recent promotion, I am now pursuing a move/change. Working for a huge global corporation, there is adventure behind every corner, senior management actively supports employee mobility, and I am optimistic I can find challenge and opportunity without having to leave. However, I am also considering external options. I am also relatively impatient, so will pursue this change increasingly aggressively in the foreseeable future.
Within the corporation, I have a couple mentors and some other folks that I counsel with. I hope that they will help my transition to a new responsibility in another department. I am bit worried though because of my openness to consider external options and also an increasing frustration with my current position.
If one of them asks me directly whether I am considering to leave, how do I best respond? Is this a "question to which you are entitled an answer"?
