Most career experts see their role in terms of gathering information about their clients and then telling them what to do. The problem with this approach is that the ideal job for any one individual should be so unique to that person that no one else is really able to define it.
Everyone should discover his or her ideal fit by a process of self-exploration. In other words, direction should come from the inside of a person, not from the tests or insights of some expert.
Having established that the answer for our life’s work and purpose is inside ourselves, we all need help in order to discover it! The Highlands Whole Person Model is a systematic framework which does exactly that. It will help you identify, describe, and put into action what is on the inside of you!
One output is a meaningful and unique Personal and Career Vision. A Personal Vision Statement is the single greatest predictor of success and satisfaction, articulating who you are and what you want.
This Christmas, why not invest in yourself or bless a loved one, with something that will not break, get discarded, or grow out-of-date? Check out Empower Coaching and give them the chance to learn, grow and develop through taking the Highlands Ability Battery, or Personal Vision Coaching program! Message me for further details.
Isn’t it interesting that aside from learning many different things at school, we’re never taught about who we really are.
So when we come to deciding a course of further education, we’re stumbling in the dark, often just going with one of the subjects that we at least enjoyed studying.
Pot Luck Degree Course
It’s hardly surprising that many students end up changing their degree course while at university, or later pursuing a career that has no bearing on the subject they just graduated in!
Maybe, the initial career path isn’t so bad after all, only to discover later on, often in mid-life, that it no longer provides any satisfaction other than a pay cheque that covers the outgoings for another month.
Whatever stage of life you are at:
- trying to decide on a university course,
- feeling uncertain as to the career path you’re currently pursuing,
- in a good job but not getting any sense of purpose or fulfilment,
- having to start over due to redundancy
…why not pause and consider some coaching sessions that can really help you truly understand who you are.
