Today, many people struggle to express their “true selves” in the work they perform and the lives they live. The bombardment of competing expectations and many workplace rules can shape who you become and how you live in ways that threaten your authenticity. Sometimes we are so intent on fitting in and succeeding that we are only vaguely aware that this is happening to us. This full-day interactive training session focuses on strategies for encouraging clients to make career choices that honour their souls or authentic selves. Soul-based choices are grounded in authenticity, meaning and purpose. Emphasizing the psychology of use, we can facilitate the consideration of the most essential questions that guide us toward achieving our unique purpose. Learning how to stay grounded in our authenticity can facilitate the creation of a soulful career. This session teaches participants how to engage in career counselling with soul.
- Understand the challenges confronting the soul at work
- Learn the importance of making soul-based career choices
- Learn soul-based career counselling techniques
- Learn how to adjust career interventions to increase the probability of making soul-based career choices
- Understand how to use the psychology of use versus the psychology of possession in career development
- Apply soul-based techniques to your own career choices
