Reconstructing Work: How to drop harmful expectations and (re)build a worklife you love

How many of us suffer in our worklives because we’re trying to meet expectations that don’t make sense for us?

Whether it’s because we’re caring for loved ones at home or because we find the traditional workplace confining, there are many of us who don’t fit into - or don’t want to fit into - the traditional workforce mold.

Not fitting in or having a career that makes sense to other people can feel isolating and make you question your worth.

Join me and Meredith Goddard, founder and director of Five Years In, for this workshop that will show you that it’s not you, it’s work that’s the problem. The standards of success in work today are impossible for most of us to meet, and that doesn’t mean that we don’t still have important contributions to make. We’ll draw from thought leaders, research, and case studies to help you diagnose what’s not working for you in the current model of work and we’ll provide you with tools and resources to help you imagine and build a worklife that allows you to be the best version of yourself.

How can you give yourself permission to design a career that actually fits you and your life right now? What small steps can you take to chart a new course for your career?

In this highly interactive workshop, participants will:

  • Examine beliefs about work that are no longer serving them
  • Generate radical new ideas about how to relate to “work” and “career”
  • Build community with other like-minded people
  • Move past fear by strategically making choices that will position them for success in the future of work
  • Have the opportunity to workshop their unique career situation with the group
  • Get to be outside among the flora and fauna for 2+ hours!

This workshop will be held in a shaded area of beautiful Laurelhurst Park. To register, please click below and you’ll be taken to the Eventbrite page.
