  • Searching For Careers We Are Passionate About

    11/29/2021

    I work with many young adults grappling with decisions about what to study at College or University and/or what career paths to pursue.

    Two contrasting phrases I hear often in relation to this age group are: "failure to launch" and " wanting a career they are passionate about". What I often see among them is not so much a failure to launch but a decision paralysis.  This paralysis stems from fear of choosing a career path that may not lead to work they are "passionate" about.

     

  • Why Is It Important To Become Familiar With How We Work?

    11/28/2021

    We are beginning to accept the fact that most of us will have several different jobs/careers in our lifetime. In order to navigate career change(s) and transition(s), it is increasingly important to become more aware of, and more skilled at, both understanding and articulating “how” we work.

    The “how” is a vital ingredient we need to add to our offering – as important as learned skills, innate skills, education and training.

The Interview

    We often focus heavily on the acquisition of skills and capacities when discussing career paths. However, the vitality, fulfillment and expansion of our professional expertise comes to life through our collaborations, our on-going learning and our integration of new perspectives. In this interview with Leslee S. Brown PhD, founder and president of MindBodyPassport Inc., we see an illustration of professional vitality and expansion in a psychologist’s experience collaborating and learning with other psychologists from around the globe.
