Meaningful Work AND Marketplace Realities
Fulfillment flows from purposeful work, yet people also need confidence that they can meet their financial obligations. Too often, though, clients feel forced to choose between meaning and money, perhaps because of the “Welcome to the Real World” advice that swirls around college students, displaced workers, and those seeking to change careers.
Instead of this “either/or” thinking, career development practitioners can help clients take a rich “both/and” approach. In this session, we’ll explore how a simple yet profound tool—polarity thinking—can guide people through the maze created by their dreams and fears, the job market, and financial realities. The result? Action steps custom-designed to help them find that sweet spot that incorporates making a life and making a living.
