PD Day with Gray Poehnell- Integrating Career Integrity into Our Practice – Techniques to Inspire!

  • 10 Oct 2012
  • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
  • Lethbridge, AB (Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, 185 Canyon Blvd. W)


Registration is closed

Career integrity is more than a nice-sounding ideal; it should be an essential framework that guides our career practice. It involves people finding true success through discovering who they are and remaining true to themselves throughout their career journeys. This is becoming increasingly difficult for many in today's uncertain and chaotic labour market, both for those who have reached their career goals but find themselves empty or for those who struggle for a sense of personal value when they must accept work far short of their ideal. This workshop will explore Career Integrity from multiple perspectives and will suggest practical ways (such as career crafting, creativity & imagination, career crossroads, and hope-fulled engagement) to keep Career Integrity a realistic goal as we work with others and ourselves.

Gray Poehnell is an experienced career consultant with over 22 years experience approaching career with holistic approaches that cultivate hope, practical spirituality, creativity, imagination, and career integrity. As partner to Dr. Norm Amundson in Ergon Communications, he has participated in the development and writing of numerous career counselling projects, programs, and resources (including several workbooks: Career Pathways, Career Crossroads, CareerScope, and Guiding Circles). Having worked with diverse client populations (such as youth, social assistance recipients, older adults, immigrants, professionals, Aboriginals, and multi-barriered clients), Gray is also widely recognized for his dynamic training of career practitioners both nationally and internationally. Gray is of Métis descent and since 2002 has been developing career approaches and tools that reflect values, such as spirituality, community, and life balance, which are integral to the lives of many people, including Aboriginal peoples. Through workshops, conference sessions, and keynotes, he has presented the Guiding Circles approach to over 2000 career practitioners, who work with indigenous peoples and other client groups that benefit from a more holistic approach, such as students, multi-barriered clients, or corrections inmates. His new book, co-authored with Norm Amundson, Hope-Filled Engagement, is a much anticipated presentation of the concepts, processes, and types of activities that are reflected in the Guiding Circles workbooks. Gray was the 2011 recipient of the Stu Conger Award for Leadership in Career Counselling and Career Development for his visionary leadership, exemplary achievement, and inspired dedication to the advancement of excellence in career development in Canada. He is very happily married, has 2 adult daughters, and currently lives in beautiful Steveston at the mouth of the Fraser River, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
