In my last post, I provided a brief overview of my Life-Work Discovery process model. Today I want to focus on the first component: Creating a vision for your life and career.
In my life before dirt, I was a successful fundraiser for nonprofit organizations in Milwaukee, WI, Portland, OR, and Pittsburgh, PA. My specialty was writing proposals that brought in grants from federal, state and foundation funders. I was successful, but I was burned out and wanted to change careers. But how?
At the age of 57, I left my last position and trained with three extraordinary people: a coach who trained folk to become coaches; a Zen priest who started a chaplaincy program; and the foremost student of David K. Reynolds who drew from Japanese therapies to create a new approach to American psychology.
These three teachers helped me create a vivid mental picture of what I wanted to be: a life and career coach and a chaplain who specialized in hospice care-giving.
The key was bringing together and assimilating the teaching of my three mentors into one organic whole which provided a foundation for a 20-year career.
Let me show you how you, too, can design and implement a life and a career you love. Join me for an initial complimentary, no-obligation meeting. I think you will glad you did.
