When you feel aimless or dissatisfied in your career, it’s often because you have no idea what you’re looking for. Without a clear idea of what you want to do, you get antsy about leaving your job, focused on external measures of success and distracted by shiny jobs. How are you supposed to stop doing what you think is “right” in your career and start doing what’s right for you? If you’re not clear about what you want, there’s no way you can convey it to anyone else. Come learn how to stop falling into jobs based on circumstances and start making decisions intentionally that are right for you.


Designing a career that’s right for you requires 3 things:

  • Clarity of what you want to do and why (feel clear about the direction you’re choosing and know why it’s a good fit)

  • Confidence in your decisions (no more energy-draining waffling, second-guessing or regret)

  • Ability to communicate it effectively (no more conversations with your manager/Director/VP that leave you feeling aimless and disorganized)


Key takeaways:

  • Relieve the pressure you place on your career

  • Assess and understand what works for you in your current role

  • Identify actions to mold your current role into a better fit

  • Learn how to stop worrying about making the right decision and avoid getting distracted by shiny jobs that aren’t a good fit

  • Gain new mindsets for how to think about your long-term career


Who is this workshop for?

Anyone who feels stuck, aimless or dissatisfied with where they are in their career.
