    The Chaos Theory of Careers

    by Dr. Jim Bright

    We all know that careers can seem chaotic, but to really understand the Chaos Theory of Careers, we must turn to the world expert, Dr Jim Bright.  Dr Bright has developed a chaos and complexity-based theory that provides an account of the complexity of influences on career development, the nature of change and unplanned events, as well as the limiting factors and emerging patterns in individual careers. 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.

    The HEROIC Mindset:

    Navigating a Lifetime of Transitions

    Without a HEROIC mindset, the Smart Machine Age leaves workers nervously employed and worried about becoming invisible. HEROIC is an acronym for six behaviors which can help you and your clients to stay focused on what really matters.  Using this acronym with clients can help them to live more fulfilling lives.  Two highly effective interventions (www.youscience.com and the Who You Are Matters! personal discovery game) will also be explained.

    Peer Supervision for the Helping Professional

    By Dr. Timothy Hsi
    Recorded on January 27, 2021

    Traditionally, practitioners from the helping professions are required to receive clinical supervision form a senior practitioner/supervisor as part of their professional development.  However, as career practice in much of the Asia Pacific region is still in its early stages of development, there are currently very few qualified career supervisors within the community.  Until this changes, a highly effective alternative is for career practitioners to engage in peer supervision as part of their professional development.  This approach harnesses the power of social learning (Bandura, 1971) which proposes that new behaviors can be acquired by observing and emulating others.  Dr. Timothy Hsi will explain the process of peer supervision and the benefit for organizations.

    Dr. Timothy Hsi is the Founding President of the Career Development Association of Singapore (CDAS) and founder of Abundanz Consulting Pte Ltd.  He was instrumental in the development of a whole new generation of career practitioners in Singapore from 2015.  Dr. Tim currently teaches career counseling and psychotherapy at the Australian College of Applied Psychology and travels regularly across Asia, educating and training individuals to be career practitioners.

    Reimagining the Future of Career Services

    By Dr. Rich Feller
    Tuesday, Feb 23/Wednesday, Feb 24, 2021

    Farouk Dey suggested that career practitioners must limit focusing on talking 1-1 with individuals about their own interests, values, needs and goals, and instead focus on enabling clients to make audacious moves through immersive experiences and consequential connections.  Can services be scalable to reach the majority of clients/students being confronted by technological and social changes.  Can we help clients/students challenge the social access and hierarchical pyramid where only a few can reach their goal and serve each client/student equally.  Join APCDA’s US Representative Dr. Rich Feller to dive deeper into these ideas and envision a new future for career practitioners.

    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.

    By Britt Andreatta

    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. It’s no wonder that organizations that know how to harness the power of purpose thrive and excel while their peers falter or fail.

    In this session, Dr. Britt Andreatta will share the latest research about the brain science of purpose and why it’s such a powerful force. 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

    India may become the world’s youngest country by 2020, with an average age of 29 years and around 28% of the world’s workforce.

    The Journey of Becoming a Self-Sustained Career Center by Employer Partnership

    By Francesca Saracino
    Recorded June 9, 2020

    The Career Service of Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading public universities for Engineering, Architecture and Design, has been active for about 15 years and it has grown from a team of 5 to a team 19 and from serving 1,000 to over 10,000 students every year, thanks to a business model based on fee-based partnerships with employers. In my webinar I will share the journey that has led the Career Service to become free from the uncertainty of central budget, bringing insights that will surely help you see how this can apply to your context as well.

    Francesca Saracino is Head of the Career Service office at Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading universities for technical studies. Being a native American-Italian bilingual and having obtained a Master degree in Languages and Cultural Mediation, she sees how students and employers need help in understanding each other because they speak different languages. The Career Service she manages is entirely self-financed and serves 45,000 students with 19 people in staff. Since 2018, she also manages the first Diversity & Inclusion Program of the University, called POP (Pari Opportunità Politecniche). Previously, she worked as an English language teacher and translator.  Francesca is also a lindy-hop dancer, yoga learner, occasional singer and concert addict.

    Career Trends in the New Normal

    By Dephy Oon
    Tuesday, July 14/Wednesday, July 15

    • What ‘new’ is around the corner, and what could the workplace be like in the future?
    • Which changes will be permanent, and what will not?
    • What will it take to ‘be noticed’? Or to ‘have more impact’? Or to lead?
    • What kind of jobs and careers will be most or least affected by these changes?
    • What can be done to be better prepared?

    In this interactive session we will explore what the “new normal” means for career practitioners and their clients and what it would look like to have more readiness for a future which will be increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and changing. As industries evolve, we will explore what that could mean for career planning and developing personal strategies to create resilient careers.

    We will discuss ways to develop deep trust and empathy with a client while giving room for new possibilities and going beyond the norm, and what it will take to support a client through this co-creative process. We will learn what it means to be wholly present (thinking, feeling and doing) while serving and leading others during challenging times, where discomfort may be numbing, and we must go beyond charted territory. Together we will evaluate what it means and what is needed to thrive during challenging times. We explore ways in which you can re-design the new normal into the life you want and take positive actions forward.
