I'd love to know what you think about this blog post. Drop me a line in the comments below. Also, if you think you could benefit from this type of transformational retreat, you're in luck I'm planning a Massachusetts retreat very soon, schedule a discovery call with me here so that we can do some coaching and figure out whether a retreat or something else might be the next right step for you.

[VIDEO] Roadmap to discover your professional calling!

Hi there,

The #1 question I get asked from my clients goes something like this "I know I’m at point A Tajan feeling stuck at this job I dread, and I know I want to get to Z doing my meaningful work, tell me what is involved in moving me from A to Z if I work with you". So I’ll answer that question for you in this video, I'll outline the exact A to Z process that I use on my retreats that I'll be teaching at my Ignite Your Passion: Live Your Calling retreat this September in Jamaica.

 

 Let me know if you have any additional questions around what the roadmap looks like to get to career nirvana in the comments.

Wanting more than a roadmap...take a closer look at my 2018 retreat in Jamaica go to www.liveyourcallingretreat.com and set up a discovery call with me today to explore whether or not this might be a right fit for you.

All the best,

Top 3 Career Assessments for your next career move

Hi!

daria-nepriakhina-297141.jpg

I must confess that I'm not a big fan of career assessments in general, especially when they are used as the primary source of information to inform and direct your career transition. However, if I had to choose three assessments that can be used in addition to rigorous self-inquiry and coaching to support your career transition the three below are the ones that I would highly recommend and I give you my reasons why.

  1. Strengths Finder This test is build on 40 years of research and is based on 34 common talents (strengths).  For $20 USD this test can tell you what your top five strengths are. These strengths can inform the kind of career you should be in where your strengths are actually allowed to shine. Strengths Finder encourages you to focus most of your time on playing to your strengths in your career and life rather than killing yourself to improve upon weaknesses. One of my top strengths is Restorative  which means I'm exceptionally adept at dealing with problems, good at figuring our what is wrong and resolving it. This is totally true for me, I love complex problem-solving, which is a big part of the reason why I love coaching.
  2. My Next Move O*NET Interests Profilerthis tool helps you identify where your career interests lie across six interest areas. It then shows you career paths that might feed those interests based on your scores.The results section even has the option to search different careers by how much preparation is necessary to get into them and much more. I think if you want to get some big picture clarity on ideal career pathways for you then the O*Net summary report can be a helpful place to start.

  3. VIA Character Strengths Test. This test is available for free, it's easy to take and identifies your core characteristics or best qualities and is based in a lot of rigorous research. Their studies show that  if you’re not using most of your top 5 characteristics at the workplace or if you're at a workplace that is not in alignment with your characteristics/values, you will be highly likely to be unhappy, even miserable so understanding what your core characteristics and values are is very important. This information will allow you to ensure that you emphasize this in your current job, promote these qualities as you interview for new jobs, and ensure that jobs/careers you're exploring share your values and will allow you to use your best qualities. My top 5 are- Appreciation of beauty & excellence, fairness, forgiveness, gratitude, and judgement (weighing all evidence fairly).

So try out one of these assessments and let me know in the comments what it was like for you to see the results. If you're needing more support to help you navigate a career transition, sign up here for a FREE consultation

Why traditional career assessments aren't enough and how coaching can help

Hi there,

There is so much confusion out there about what coaching is, what it isn't. In my recent awesome interview with Lou Blaser on the Second Breaks podcast we talk about what coaching is, how it is different from therapy, and how to know when you're ready for coaching. I also talk about why traditional career assessments just aren't enough for you to figure out your calling and why you actually have to get out of your daily grind to get the clarity you need to discover and pursue your calling. For more information and support with making your next bold career move, get registered for my "Ignite Your Passion: Live Your Calling" free webinar... while there's still space.

 

Here's a breakdown of the topics we discussed on the podcast:

TOPICS DISCUSSED IN EPISODE 29

  • What is coaching and how is it different from talk therapy
  • Why and when you might need a coach
  • How to find out if you’re ready for coaching
  • How much time you should invest in a coaching relationship
  • What’s missing from traditional career assessments
  • Tajan’s recommended 3 steps for figuring out your calling
  • Why removing ourselves from the daily grind is an important step in a transformational process
The coach is a catalyst to a process that may happen on its own, but you may spin your wheels in mud for years. You may work with a coach for a few months and take quantum leaps. A coach is the fire under the pot that is speeding up a process that naturally wants to happen anyway. —Tajan Renderos
