Career Clinic: Finding a New Career Direction

Steps to Finding Work You Love

Do you feel like you are in a rut in your career and long to do something that feels more fulfilling, even if you have no idea what that might be? Do you know you're in the wrong job but feel stuck by fear or self-doubt when you think about trying to make a change?

This workshop is tailored to help you find direction and outline steps to find (and achieve!) work you love.

In advance of the workshop, we strongly encourage you to take a Strengthsfinder Assessment (cost $19.99) which we'll use in class. It is optional but beneficial. You can find and pay for the assessment here:

During the workshop, we'll do interactive exercises to help explore and identify the values, transferable skills, motivations, and personal realities that you'll want to align as you consider career paths and roles.

This workshop for mid-career professionals is the first step in helping you understand what's important to you in your career and positions you for planning the next steps.


  • Identify your strengths and potential career journeys where you add value and find fulfillment
  • Plan concrete steps on your career path
  • Learn strategies for making a career change and overcoming roadblocks
