This spring, Evolve launches our long-awaited online career coaching programme – STRIVE.
STRIVE has been inspired by the hundreds of people we’ve worked with who have started a new chapter in their careers. Whether this was seeking a new career direction, moving forward after redundancy, or finding a role that is a better ‘fit’ and allowed them to shine, it took courage and determination to get them there.
What is also took, was fine tuning their ability to focus on the action steps that really matter. At Evolve we like to use the phrase ‘game changing’ when it comes to the choices that accelerate people’s progress towards their goals. When it comes to career development, we see what the game changers are and the results they create for people playing out every week. If they can do it, so can you.
But why does going after the right career matter?
It matters for lots of reasons, but probably the biggest one being that it gives you an opportunity to live a life aligned with your purpose.
Living Your Purpose
We all have a fundamental human need for living life with a sense of purpose. When are prevented from doing things on a daily basis that honour that purpose, we begin to feel lost. Signs that indicate we are off course include experiencing the Groundhog Day effect (just getting through the next meeting or project) and being in survival mode – with the fire in our belly and excitement for what lies ahead having disappeared.
It is thought that we spend around 90,000 hours of our lives working and so striving for more in our careers is much more than career enhancement, it’s life enhancement. Also, engaging in work that has meaning increases our resilience levels and ability to overcome challenges, a skill we all spend a lifetime mastering. The legendary Austrian Neurologist, Philosopher and Holocaust survivor Victor Frankl says it best;
“Those who have a why to live, can bear with almost any how.”
At Evolve, we believe everyone deserves to do work that makes them feel alive, fulfilled, and valued for who they truly are. This is what gets us out of bed in the morning and is the reason why we have built STRIVE – an inspiring and informative self-directed coaching programme that’ll help you move towards the right career opportunity for you.
This is our purpose, so what’s yours?
Identifying Your Why
By identifying your ‘why’ you can start to take game changing steps to evolve your career to one that will enable you to shine as the best version of you. We call this Career Course Correction. Spend a bit of time pondering the questions below and see what your mind shows you. The clues are all around you and have been there since you were young.
- What activities did you love to do as a child?
- In your career to date when have you felt most alive and why, what were you doing?
- If there was one thing you could do, be or create in your career that you would be remembered for, what would it be?
If you’re striving for a new career opportunity that is better aligned with your purpose, having STRIVE in your corner will help you do the work you were born to do and be the person you were born to be.
See you there!
