Explore. Dream. Discover
sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
Mark Twain’s quote inspires the three phases of the programme: EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.
According to research, those most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers that reflect who they truly are; careers that draw on innate strengths and allow deeply held values to be honoured.Hence the foundation of the programme, the EXPLORE phase, involves a thorough examination of who you really are. It is all about developing self-awareness of you as a person and your life as a whole. You will gain clarity around your values, life purpose, personal strengths, interests, and what you require to be happy and fulfilled.
Next, we explore your work preferences. These include key motivators, favourite skills, professional strengths, work accomplishments, preferred environment, and ideal working day.
The key information elicited during the EXPLORE phase is captured on two forms: the Life Star and Work Star. When complete, these two Stars provide a richly coloured snapshot of who you are and what you need in your life. This information then acts as an acid test for evaluating career ideas and opportunities later. In parallel, you open an Ideas Bank to capture any career possibilities that come up during the early weeks of the programme, however mild or wild.
The following stage DREAM is a highly creative part of the programme when potential career choices are generated. It is called DREAM because the aim is to be expansive, not constrained by traditional notions of what’s feasible. We then investigate the most appealing ideas further before narrowing down to one to three strong possibilities.
DISCOVER is the point at which short-list possibilities are explored in detail before selecting one to investigate in depth. We then use a creative and empowering process to transform your vision for an exciting career that is right for you, into a soundly based action plan to make it a reality.
