Experience an innovative career clarification game
Who You Are MATTERS!, and learn new narrative tools for managing your career for the future
"From Insecurity and Doubt to Hope and Confidence"
Leading up to his keynote talk, Mark Franklin will facilitate two learning experiences within one pre-conference session, to help you understand the dynamics of a narrative framework that’s creating a new language for career management.
A highly interactive discovery experience, Who You Are MATTERS! sidesteps traditional assessments and workshops, freeing participants to think, feel and say who they are, what they want and what’s important to them. Used successfully with post-secondary students and in organizational teambuilding, the game gets people talking, taking a serious topic and putting a fun spin on it. You’ll experience how the game turns micro-narratives into a marvelous one page career & life mosaic, and results in a substantive Career Statement. You’ll interact with peers to identify unique strengths and desires, generate new career ideas, and increase trust and collaboration.
Both the game and the CareerCycles evidence-based, method of practice draw on the same holistic, narrative framework used by more than 200 career professionals across Canada, US and Europe. After the game experience, you’ll see a short demonstration of the innovative processes and tools and then experience it yourself. You’ll hear first-hand experience about creating and using this method to gather and organize elements from client stories, and to empower your clients to be profoundly receptive to clues, to take inspired action, and to recognize meaningful moments, pivot, embrace and fully explore them.
Join us and learn how this narrative framework's tools and interventions, including the game, balance structure with flexibility and professional judgment, and empower you to listen in new ways to clients' stories. Leave the session feeling more confident and excited about your practice.
