"Lately I have been feeling kind of unfulfilled about my profession. I need a shift with that. Here is what I am planning to do... I need your full support with that. Can I be sure you are standing with me on that?"
You show direction. You are firm with your choice and tell them exactly what they can do to help you reach your goals.
Don't ask them to take action for you. Don't delegate. Simply show them how they can stand to empower you.
