What If It's Time For A Change? - Jackie Woodside

“What if it’s time for a change?”asked Jackie Woodside (Author, Speaker and Professional Coach) at the WIN workshop last night. During the presentation, Jackie shared insights from her book and helped participants understand the dynamics of the human change process. She said that the main problem was that most people do not understand how to create meaningful, successful, long-lasting change! For a solution, one has to learn the critical elements to mastering change. The following are the 4 keys to managing change and creating a life of meaning, success, productivity and ease.
1.     Develop a PLAN to manage the change: Most people spend very little time planning what they want to accomplish in life, and therefore accomplish very little of what they want.
2.     Establish super SUPPORT: We are relational beings by nature. Therefore, we all can reach higher and be more in the face of meaningful supportive relationships with like-minded people.
3.     Align your ACTIONS with your VALUES: Become incredibly clear that the change you seek is aligned with what you value and be sure that those elements are present in your schedule, so that you know they will be present in your life.
4.     Establish ACCOUNTABILITY: Very little gets accomplished in life without some form of accountability. Create a structure for the change you want to make where you need to be accountable for the actions you commit to taking.
Every change begins with a plan, so create a plan for living the life you love!

Finding a Job You Really Want - Clare Harlow

Clare Harlow (Career & Life Coach and Consultant) presented an informative workshop on finding a job you really want. She began with a problems checklist and encouraged participants to mention problems faced during a job search.  She shared a handout about the Comprehensive Emotional Scale and explained which part of the scale one should be on to achieve success. She discussed the steps to finding work that fits one's life. One has to ponder on answers to questions like Who are you? What’s important to you? What do you like to do? Where do you want to work? …etc. Based on the responses, one should create an action plan. Brainstorming your ideal job questions is important. For example: What advice would you give yourself at this time in your life? Imagine you were interviewing ‘you’ and answer questions like - What 3 major choices brought you to this point in your life? Looking back, what 3 things do you wish you had tried? Clare concluded the workshop with 18 ways to find work and explained that doing a self-inventory had an 86% success rate in finding a job. She said, “What you believe will happen is a factor in your outcome.”
