    Individually we want to be actively engaged in creating and constructing our lives and careers. We are also relational beings, we experience meaning and a sense of connection through collaboration and being engaged with others and the world around us. We are motivated to contribute to our families, to our work and the communities we are part of as this gives us an energized feeling of purpose and value. Ideally, we want our aspirations, values, passions, interests, personality, education and unique experiences to be aligned with our work lives. This alignment or congruence is experienced as "best fit", as personally authentic, more importantly it is the key to fulfillment and enriches our career path(s).

  • Difficulty Retaining Talent? Ask Employees How They Experience And Define Career

    06/19/2019

    Individual career goals and organizational talent needs are very different by definition, intention and application. Quantitative and generalized assessments of talent whose starting point is based on the organization’s functional needs and goals may not yield satisfactory answers as to why there may be a talent shortage or how organizations can attract, retain and further cultivate the talent they have. Retention has as much to do with what employees are experiencing and how they define the meaning of career and work as it does in matching the functional needs of an organization with the specific skills required to perform those functions.

The Interview

  • Khashayar Farhadi Langroudi, Psy.D

    06/19/2019

    The work we do and the professions we choose to embark on shape aspects of our identity. In turn, our identities influence our work and the specific roles we exercise in that work. We bring our work to life not only through our skills and capacities but also through our personal values, attitudes and motivations. In this interview with Khashayar Farhadi Langroudi, Psy.D., we discuss his work as a psychologist and how that work is shaped by his personal values and his views on compassion, diversity and qualitative approaches to mental health.
