Workshop description

For those at a career crossroads and wanting more intentional career planning, this in-depth workshop provides assessment, structure, and exercises to facilitate the career- and life-planning process. You’ll explore your skills, values, interests, and style preferences using the Strong Interest Inventory (SII), Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and other individual/group activities and leave the workshop with an action plan. For individuals at any stage in their career including retirement. Led by experienced career counselors. Some homework between sessions.
