Guiding Circles Workshops

"The Guiding Circles Step one workshop inspires and enlightens teachers, career coaches or individuals to bring new tools to the career development process. This workshop encourages you to participate in the process and reflect on your own career journey stories while discovering an active engagement approach that better connects you to your clients by meeting them where they are engaged in life. You’ll explore the circle as a metaphor for careers and life, learning to identify and resolve conflicting values and connect the career process to families, friends and other influencers. Along the way, you will develop questioning strategies that drill down to a deeper level of understanding to enable individuals to discover their skills, talents and passions through story-telling."
