    A Paradox of Labor Market in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC): Increasing Student Employability

    This webinar was recorded on March 7, 2017.

    The countries of the Arab Gulf have historically been a top choice for the global expatriate workforce due to high economic growth, quality of life, employment prospects, and good governance. Recently however, these countries are facing significant economic pressure from the ongoing slump in oil prices, political disputes, and rising youth unemployment. This creates a paradox of possibility.

The CTC model is also being applied to leadership, creativity, and occupational stress, particularly through his Beyond Personal Mastery model.

    Students' Pursuit of STEM Careers

    How can a career professional identify students with potential for a STEM Career nearly a decade before they pursue it?

    By Vandana Chopra Gambhir

    Worldwide, students pursuing STEM-centric academic courses tend to leave and shift their focus on other subjects across various transition points. Recent evidence indicates that students who are misfit for STEM education have gone through depression and resorted to attempting and many a times committing suicide. Thus, it is essential to seek ways through which STEM pipeline can be developed which has a high probability to continue and thrive in STEM careers. Dr. Gambhir has built a psychological framework that helps career professionals to identify students with potential for having STEM career nearly a decade before they pursue it. The framework has been extensively used with school and university students and helped them in their pursuit of the STEM professions.

    Systems Thinking, Systems Stories and Narrative Career Counselling

    By Mary McMahon

    Systems thinking permeates our everyday life. Applications of systems thinking can be found in computer systems and transport systems. Our career development occurs in the complex cultural and contextual systems of family, community, education, and work as well as in the geographic, socioeconomic, socio-political and historical contexts in which we live. To make sense of our experiences in these contexts we tell stories to ourselves and others. Career counsellors can harness systems thinking and storytelling to assist clients with their career concerns. This webinar will provide practical examples of systems thinking and its applications in career development. In particular, the application of systems thinking in storytelling and narrative career counselling will be considered and tips and strategies provided.

    Blending Psychological Type and the Ancient Wisdom of the I Ching to Form a Universal Career Assessment Model

    By Brian Schwartz 

    Psychological type has become one of the major underlying systems in career assessment worldwide. What is far less known is that Dr. Carl Jung was inspired to write Psychological Types (1921) after reading the Richard Wilhelm translation of the i Ching or Chinese Book of Changes. The oldest book in the world gave Dr. Jung the portal through which he then not only developed the basis for modern type theory but for his concepts of synchronicity, the collective unconscious, the “shadow” aspect of personality and the archetypes. Using the structure of the “bagua” or octagon from the i Ching, I have developed a framework for understanding the destiny (not fate) embedded in the 16 mindsets of type theory and their relationship to impassioned skills, values, career selection and intrinsic motivation.  Drawing from the Laws of Attraction or Opposites and of Cycles or Periodicity, the elegance of the i Ching’s depth about Man’s relationship to Nature is explored and applied to modern day work and life situations.

    Intro to Design Thinking & Positive Psychology

    By Julie Neill

    This webinar will provide an introduction to two influential fields that are impacting career development in the US. Design thinking, a problem-solving methodology used by companies such as Google and Apple to spur innovation, is now being used to help individuals navigate careers that are no longer linear.  Design thinking can help unlock creativity within the career planning process eliciting more varied options and spur individuals out of analysis paralysis into concrete action.

    At the same time, the field of positive psychology which focuses on strengths has brought attention to the notion of purpose and meaningful work.  This webinar will provide a brief overview of both design thinking and positive psychology and discuss how to apply the principles of both to help individuals thrive in the ever-changing future of work.

    It Takes a Village: Maximizing Engagement

    in School, at Work, in Life

    By Roberta Neault

    Teachers and school administrators want to facilitate student engagement. Supervisors and managers focus on employee engagement and how it contributes to productivity and retention. Individuals, across the globe, want lives that are meaningful, interesting, and manageable.

    The Career Engagement model bridges these silos, providing a conceptual framework for understanding how the right mix of challenge and capacity can result in optimal (and sustainable) engagement, across the lifespan.  Without such alignment, individuals can begin to feel overwhelmed or underutilized.

    Join co-developer of the career engagement model, Dr. Roberta Neault, for an introduction to this model and tips on how to use it with students, parents, community members, employers, and government policy makers to maximize engagement across diverse life roles and settings.

    Wednesday, September 25/Thursday, September 26

    Purpose is the driving force that gives our lives meaning.  Humans are wired for purpose and in fact, recent discoveries in neuroscience offer a fascinating look into what motivates us to become our best selves. The ability to align purpose is what distinguishes the most effective leaders from the rest, and purpose is at the heart of engagement, productivity, and retention.

You’ll learn how you can leverage purpose to create a better work environment, more engaged employees, more effective leaders, and a positive culture that attracts and retains top talent. You’ll leave with tips and strategies for weaving purpose into a wide range of learning and talent programs, all of which will contribute to your organization’s success.

    In this session, you will:

    • Learn the brain science of purpose and why it fuels human motivation around the world
    • Discover how purpose can enhance engagement, productivity, leadership and retention
    • Identify ways to intentionally leverage the power of purpose to increase your organization’s success
