We Are On, Learn
Resilience: Career Growth and Insights
Sometimes we get lost in the throws of life- work, family, school, children, deadlines, deliverables, milestones, pregnancies, death, life. And while “life” is happening, we somehow believe we are “in-control”. In an instant, this sense of control can be shaken to its core by a death, tragedy, job loss or other life “shift”. March 2020 marked a shift in the way we lived and did business. While countries gave it various names- Shelter-in-place, Lockdown, Quarantine - the world saw a change in the way we lived our daily lives. People went from going to work every day to work-at-home, or in many cases, job shifts, furloughs or job loss. There are many items that are important in times like these – health and wellness (in all aspects of your being), safety, security, shelter, clothing, nourishment (to name a few). It can certainly feel like the carpet has been ripped from under you when circumstances change. Whether you are feeling the impact of COVID-19, a change at work or home, or you are getting ready to make a change, this workshop is designed to help you understand that you were made for such a time as this. This session will provide you with frameworks to use as you continue in your current role, and/or transition to your next opportunity and/or move to the next phase in your life. Each person’s transition is different, and we will provide you with tools to assist you in this moment in time, as well as reference material to assist you during your transition. Ultimately, you will walk away understanding that there is a purpose behind your path, and guidelines as to how to maximize it.
