Are you seeking work that is aligned with who you are, but not quite sure how to move towards it?

Maybe you followed the advice of go to school, get good grades and get a “good” job, but still you find that you aren’t very fulfilled in your work. Or maybe you have had a good career but have been recently been laid off and find that there are fewer and fewer options in your field as a result of a shifting economy and employment landscape.

You know you have valuable skills to share and you are actively looking for meaningful ways to contribute, but maybe you feel a bit lost and unsure what to do next. Calgary is changing, industries are shifting and job opportunities are changing. There are a number of new and exciting opportunities emerging in the City, but how do you make sure you are ready for them and can effectively communicate how your unique skills can be of value?

Some of these opportunities are going to be new wrinkles in the way that the energy industry - the heart of the Calgary economy for many decades - operates. Other opportunities will be found in emerging sectors of the local economy like high tech.

To be ready is to see that the skills, competencies and mindset you carry are ready to meet the challenge of the new opportunities. This might require some extra learning and will require some rewiring of the way you present your existing skills and experience so it makes a natural connection to these new opportunities.

To help you take charge and intentionally design the next step in your career/worklife, we’ve designed a one-day workshop to help your clarify your next steps. During this full day workshop you will participate in a series of activities that will help you:

  • Identify accomplishments in your life and the elements that contributed to these accomplishments so you can replicate them in the future.
  • Learn a comprehensive approach to discovering your unique career path.
  • Learn the three different types of skills and create an inventory of your skill sets.
  • Learn a framework for understanding your interests and how to use this framework to vett future work and hobbies to ensure alignment.
  • Complete a personality assessment that will provide you with additional insights on your personality and how to use your personality to work effectively with others.
  • Define your values so you have an understanding of what these are and how they can help you find work that aligns with your values.
  • Begin to create a customized canvas and a bio to assist you in designing your work.
  • Create an action plan to map out the next 90 days of your work-life redesign.
  • An understanding of what will be meaningful for you and how to find it.
  • A new approach for displaying and marketing your competencies that will work with employers.
  • Curated selection of key resources for taking the next step.
