What does "Sustainability" mean to you? What are the forces of change that are impacting you now - in your Job, Career, or LIFE? How may you prepare now for your own "sustainable future" as the world is changing economically, environmentally and socially?
The world is fast-forwarding to demand every person, at every stage of their life, be prepared to adapt to multiple forces of change, impacting every sector of employment, outmoding old jobs and demanding entrepreneurial approaches. Students are having trouble finding “the job” after school, mid-career changes require new learning, and leaders can not achieve innovation by top-down approaches of the past. But how may we navigate so many unknowns and the "human ecology” of careers over longer lifespans while resources seem to be more constrained than ever?
The CareerEcologia Course offers a 4-phase inquiry-directed process, designed to proactively build your collaborative and creative leadership of interdisciplinary solutions, related to contemporary issues of “sustainability” for yourself and others in your radius of impact. The workbook is designed as a constructive thinking and learning tool, integrating adaptive step-by-step guidance that is customizable to your unique situation, lifestyle and goals. Experiential learning and professional communications throughout the 4-phases may be maximized by partnering with our CareerEcologia Coaching, Course and Community of Practice. The CareerEcologia Workbook is offered separately as an introductory and accessible learning tool for students, educators and career changers who may find it useful within your own program or professional partnerships. We hope for you to become the change you seek in the world!
