Description

You know you want to do something different...
...but you're not sure what that something is, or how to make it happen.

Maybe it's a different company. Maybe it's a new career. Maybe it’s starting a business. Or maybe it’s setting off on an adventure. But if you're not sure where to start or what your options are, leaving a safe job can be scary.

Ultimately, you want to do work that matters to you, and to the world. We all do. And there’s a growing community of ambitious people who believe that different really is possible.

Over the last seven years, we’ve spoken to thousands of our community members about their experience of doing something different, and learned first-hand the challenges and realities of making a brave career change.

This 3-part workshop is a practical step-by-step guide to navigating the early stages of making a career change - starting with finding direction, and then providing the tools you need to make change a viable reality.

Each part can be taken independently, but we suggest thinking of it as a trilogy.

Here's what you can expect:



Workshop 1: "Getting Unstuck"

(Thursday 10th November, 2016, 18:30-21:30)

The biggest challenge that many of us face is feeling the need for a change, but not knowing which direction to take - or how to figure that out. This session focuses on practical exercises to break out of ‘stuckness’ and begin to find answers.

What you will learn:

> The psychology behind feeling 'stuck' - and just how many people feel like you do
> A framework for understanding the important ingredients of fulfilling work
> How to figure out what type of (and how much) change you’re looking for
> What you want to build on, what you want to let go of, and what's missing
> What personal intentions you can set and carry forwards
> The value of a likeminded and supportive community when making a change

This is for you if:

- You feel unfulfilled in your current work situation
- You’re ready for change but aren’t sure what the next step is. ‘If not this, then what?’
- You’re curious about doing something else but don't know how to move forward
- You want to be part of a likeminded community seeking to do something different



Workshop 2: "Building a Career Change Toolkit"

(Thursday 24th November, 2016, 18:30-21:30)

The world of work is changing. We see this not only in the types of roles available, but in the way in which roles can be found and secured. This workshop focuses on tools and strategies to help you thrive in the new world of work.

NB This is part two of our Do Work You Love Series. It is not necessary to attend part one to join this workshop, however we recommend that you come with an interest or direction you’d like to explore.


What you will learn:

> What the new landscape of work looks like and how your existing skills and interests can fit into it
> How to set yourself up for success, including strengths to build on
> The key ingredients and methods for creating opportunities for yourself
> How you can test new directions quickly, and with minimal risk

This is for you if:

- You know what you want, but you're not sure how to move towards it
- You’d like to get ahead of the curve, and learn how to thrive in the emerging world of work
- You have some career ideas that you'd like to test out in a new way
- You’d like to meet likeminded allies to who are also exploring the new world of work



Workshop 3: "Planning Your Escape"

(Thursday 8th December, 2016, 18:30-21:30)

Toying with the idea of career change, but don’t know enough about the impact that it would have on your life? This workshop offers practical tools to help you to be smart about plotting your escape - so that you stay in control, and only make the sacrifices you’re willing to make while you take positive steps towards doing work you love.

NB. This is part 3 of our Do Work You Love Series. It is not necessary to attend parts 1 or 2 to join this workshop.

What you will learn:

> How to define what success means to you, and how to make it a reality in the new world of work
> What smart career transition looks like for you
> The trade-offs you are - and aren’t - willing to make when it comes to a change
> The answers to practical questions about making a transition
> The role money plays in your transition and how to prepare an Escape Fund

This is for you if:

- You think you'd like to make a career change, but are unsure whether it's realistic for you
- You know you need a change, but you're worried about jumping without a parachute or the right plan
- You want to find out how to manage money through career transition
- You want to meet people who are thinking about making a change.
