    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Future of Work:
    Preparing Ourselves for Jobs of Tomorrow

    By Gog Soon Joo and Jeremiah Wong
    Recorded April 19, 2020

    How we live, work and play are changing as technology becomes increasingly adopted and integrated for the betterment of life. The impact is most visible at the workplace where technology has blurred industry lines, re-shaped business models, changed the concept of work, redefined jobs and the skills that go with them. Do we stand a chance in surviving the future of work? How can Singapore’s Employment and Career Guidance (ECG) and Career Development (CD) effort better prepare us to make sense, navigate the changing world of work, and thrive in multiple-careers? The first part of this webinar will highlight how the world of work is changing, and discuss the approach of ECG and CD toward lifelong career-learning advisory. The second part of this webinar will examine some rising themes regarding the future roles of Career Practitioners.
