Listen to a message from the Career Coach.
Overview. Soulful Career and Life Coaching.

Career exploration is a journey of self-discovery and tapping into your potential. You will probably be quite surprised about where it takes you. Time invested in the process can change the course of your life.

Very few people are born knowing what they want to do and how to get there. Most people need to seek some support and guidance in order to navigate the path successfully. Especially in the 21st century, the world of work and how we actually perform work are changing so rapidly and dramatically. Reading books about career planning, completing career questionnaires, conducting information interviews, or meeting with a Career Coach, are all valuable and necessary steps to take.

The term “Career” has taken on a new meaning in the 21st century. A career is the composite picture of all of the roles and activities that each of us has performed up until this point in time. This new way of looking at a career legitimizes activities and experiences regardless of whether we received a paycheque. Our roles as a student, volunteer, parent, worker, or citizen all take on new significance and add value to the overall career tapestry. Every day of the year, each of us has the opportunity to take another step toward creating our true livelihood. Our Career Journey consists of thousands of tiny steps along the way.

Although you have made a decision today to initiate the career exploration journey, in reality you have been in the process of preparing for your true livelihood for a much longer period of time.

Career exploration involves looking at your own personal treasure chest and adding meaning and value to the gems you discover. Before knowing the direction you would like to go in, it is very important to take stock of the resources you possess already as well as to identify what new skills and knowledge you might need to acquire in order to enhance your career portfolio and to move forward in a more meaningful direction.

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
