"Navigating Our Rapidly Changing and, Uncertain World"

Facilitator: Carol Vecchio

Workshop based upon her book:

The Time Between Dreams: How to Navigate Uncertainty in Your Life and Work

In this workshop, career development practitioners, at all stages of their careers, will benefit by gaining a deeper and, richer understanding of Carol's transitional model by:
  • Understanding and applying a unique, holistic model for change and transition seeing uncertainty as necessary and positive
  • Learning how to have more patience with clients as they move through change.
  • Defining effective next steps for working with change instead of against it, and experience activities which are essential at each stage of the process.

Today's stressful world with its 24/7 unending technology upgrades and frenetic pace creates confusion and tension for each of us, at every age. Master counsellor, Carol Vecchio, has developed strategies to effectively help people reframe and navigate these periods of ambiguity. In her workshop you will learn how to listen, understand, and help your clients so you can quickly and effectively support and facilitate their transitions.

Based upon her book, The Time Between Dreams: How to Navigate Uncertainty of Your Life and Work, Carol has developed a cyclical adn holistic approach to navigating uncertainty in life and work using a seasonal metaphor.

This session is grounded in a number of career development theories:

  • Chaos
  • Planned Happenstance
  • Narrative
  • Career Construction
  • Positive Uncertainty

And is based, as well, on work by:

  • Jung
  • Adler
  • Levinson
  • Sheehy
  • Campbell
  • Kubler-Ross
  • Native American/Aboriginal Peoples and Eastern traditions.
