Why It Works
If you've tried to find a meaningful career on your own, you know how difficult it can be to strike the right balance of passions, purpose, lifestyle desires, and income requirements. Your Career Homecoming can shortcut years of frustration, false starts, indecisiveness, and second-guessing.
Here's why it works:
Most career change methodologies take a very academic approach to your career, as if you can be summed up by a list of transferable skills. We consider your whole person and how your career will contribute to the life you want to live.
This is a unicorn-free zone. While big dreams are encouraged, fantasy is not. We don’t assume that if you love something enough or work hard enough that things will work out, because life doesn’t always work like that.
While it's impossible to eliminate risk when you make a change, you don't need to be reckless. We use a checks and balances system to ensure that you won’t make the same mistakes you’ve made in the past or get invested in something that sounds enticing but is not actually a match for you.
You get lots of specific-to-you guidance and mentoring so you’re not left to figure everything out on your own. (What color IS your parachute?!)
The best strategy doesn’t work if you’re too afraid to implement it, so we also deal with your fears. Learning emotional resilience, how to manage uncertainty, and building confidence are integral parts of the program so you can get out of your own way.
No more basing big life decisions on what you have a hunch might work or what Aunt Susan thinks you’d be good at. Your Career Homecoming is so thorough and specific to you that you can’t argue with the outcomes.
Even people who have done a lot of personal development work struggle when it comes to applying what they know about themselves to their career. Your Career Homecoming bridges the gap between your self-knowledge and a meaningful career.
It’s amazing to finally be able to answer the question, “What am I doing with my life?” but Your Career Homecoming makes sure you have a plan on how to transition into your Homecoming Career, too.
The short-term goal of Your Career Homecoming is to help you discover the meaningful work that's right for you--and it does that. But should your life circumstances change (you move, get married, have a baby, want something different), you'll have a process to navigate change. In short, you’re set for life.
