On Monday May 20th I will be answering LIVE all your questions on how to change careers when you don’t know what to do next. Join me at 12 pm Pacific for a one-hour webinar, hosted by PowerToFly, on How to Change Careers and Repurpose Your Purpose – RSVP here.
I started Repurpose Your Purpose because changing careers, especially when you don’t know what to pursue, is a complex problem that cannot be solved by reading one more book or following someone else’s advice.
When I have been stuck in life, the one thing that really helped me has been coaching, more than therapy and definitely way more than school. But I was lucky: I got to work with deep transformational coaching. This is a practice that focuses on shifting the way we think about things, bringing about the kind of self awareness that generates radically difference action on the part of the client.
Most of the time the word coach is used to refer to people who give advice and share information (such as how to update your Linkedin profile). Although I do also train and share information with my clients, the most important part of my work is to support them in finding their own truth. This is part spiritual, part psychological, and part skillful work. I work with super smart people, individuals who often know more than I do or have jobs that are extremely complicated. If they needed more information and knowledge they could easily get it. What I am an expert in is in guiding my clients through a process that (re)connects them to themselves, other people, and the world we live in. My work happens in the space between: once you learn how to access this space for yourself, combined with practical and effective action and communication techniques, you can (re)gain the power to deal with complex problems that go beyond the amount of information you can intellectually know.
Join me and PowerToFly on Monday May 20th: I will be answering live all your most pressing career changing questions. I will share my best tips, help you think deeper and differently about where you are at in your career and where you want to go, and I will support you in gaining new insights.
