Education Series: Know your Ikigai. Know your next career move.

April 7th, 2022


#EducationSeries #BCAMA

We’ve all heard about the “Great Resignation” as people reconsider who they are and how they want to live their professional lives.  Some are flocking to new roles, companies – or even changing careers completely. Before you make a change, how do you tap into what your true purpose is, and what this means for your career?

Your ikigai provides you with powerful insights into how you can change what you are currently working on, create a new role within your company, or discover something even more rewarding.

Ikigai is a Japanese word that roughly means your “reason for being”. It includes uncovering what you are good at, what you love, what the world needs – and what you can get paid for.

At this 90-minute interactive workshop, Stephanie and Louann, Career Coaches from PeerSpectives Consulting, will guide you through activities to uncover your ikigai and ways to re-energize your current role or inform your next career move.
