Overview

Do you want to help your clients in their mid-life (45-60) to reinvent themselves when they are facing redundancy, feeling lost and unclear how to make themselves relevant again in the world of work? To regain their joie de vivre when feeling burnt out, dissatisfied and unfulfilled in their work? Then join us for this hands-on and interactive workshop, where we will learn how to help your clients in their mid-life to reinvent their careers.

 

During mid-life it is common to face uncertainties in work and life, and to feel personally challenged. Also, such challenges can be individual, complex and difficult to make sense of. Some are questioning ‘What do I want?’, whilst others may be asking ‘Have I done enough?’ or ‘Who am I?’ Many will be wondering how they can deal with these experiences and find a way forward. Now is a perfect time to work with our clients to help them to reinvent themselves so that they feel inspired and motivated to take forward this next career chapter.

Technical matters

We will be using Zoom which works best on a laptop rather than phone. You will need a camera and audio to participate.

People using iPads and Apple Macs may experience different layouts than others, so please ensure you are familiar with the basics of Zoom (chat, raising hands, mute, sharing documents).

The workshop will be very interactive, so bring your brain, pen, paper and enthusiasm.

Please connect in at 9.55am, so that any technical issues can be resolved before we start at 10am.
