Program 1 - What Do I Want?
To lay a strong foundation for finding a career or job that provides you with meaning and fulfillment, you must first determine where you personally look for meaning. You may already have some general ideas, but the more clarity and precision you have before beginning, the more effective and efficient your search will be.
Inner Research discovery guides will help you identify and prioritize your most compelling sources of meaning and fulfillment. The guides marked with asterisks are highly recommended; the others will add value to your search and may be particularly appropriate to your situation.
Clear your emotional channels of anger or frustration left over from a previous work situation. Learn from these experiences so they don't get repeated.
Take a guided tour to locate sources of personal meaning. Visit early memories and moments of resonance. Identify your most closely held values. Discover your personal and unique definition of success.
Create a Work Genogram and a Work Autobiography to discover the influences that have shaped your work choices to date.
Meaning is often found by tapping personal strengths and building on them. Two Discovery Guide exercises will assist you in identifying those skills and attributes you use most naturally and effectively. Optional*, to complement exercises: Strength Finder 2.0 (listed in Resources), a book with companion website that provides excellent strengths assessment tool. *Additional cost for book: $13.50.
Identify your chief motivator: Articulate the core purpose or guiding principal that underlies and propels your work endeavors.
Synthesize the important elements from the discovery guides into your vision of meaningful work. Your Career Vision will contain what you stand for, your personal aspirations, and the impact you want to have.
Generate an online self-profile of your values, skills, career interests and personality traits to reveal patterns and show you how your aspirations and abilities fit into the world of work. *An additional $49 cost.

Completion within 2 months is recommended.
