A 4 session, team oriented fee based workshop with a structured and proven process to help you move forward! Offered 5 times a year.

Key Outcomes:

  • Assess your “Divine Design” including your personality, interests, values, skills and gifts
  • Learn tools for investigating potential careers and wise decision making
  • Work in teams to develop and practice telling your fulfilling stories

Needs a minimum class size of 15.

Assess your Design so you can determine your new Focus!

For the unemployed, unhappily employed or underemployed: How are things progressing in your work life? Is it exhilarating and are you able to shine as you make the best use of your experiences, interests, personality, and gifting in meaningful work? Or instead is it dull and lifeless, where you are trudging through day by day and wondering if there shouldn’t be more to your work life and somehow you are missing out?

  •       Frustrated in a meaningless job?
  •       In a job clearly not a fit for you?
  •       Feeling lost?
  •       At a dead end in your career?
  •       Wanting to make a difference?
  •       Not sure if you should make that risky move to something new?
  •       Are you early in your career and want to make sure you get on the right career path? (Great for college students and early career young adults. Special registration rate offered!)

This program helps you dig deeply into learning more about yourself and unearthing some of those things in the past that give you insight into your future direction.

In this workshop, we will help you explore the inner passions that combine your knack for certain work with the opportunities that may come your way.  You will identify the times when you felt the most joy from your work.  Then you will develop a personal compass that helps you determine which opportunities provide your best path.

Hundreds of job seekers have participated and call Design & Focus “life changing.” It receives excellent reviews by past participants.

Past participants have shared:

  • “Thank you for the Design and Focus class.  It really did help me stay focused on the things I enjoyed doing, so when this opportunity became available I was able to recognize that it would be right up my alley.”
  • “Helpful, soul-searching, focused, supportive, necessary.”
  • “It significantly cuts through the “fog” of what I do next.”
  • “This program helps you get grounded and directed. Everyone needs some motivation and a starting point.”
  • “Clarification of who you are and want is an essential element in a presentation about yourself. This course makes that concrete.”
  • “It takes work, but is worthwhile and benefits all areas of your life.”
  • “You Must Do This!”

IS THERE HOMEWORK WITH THE COURSE? YES! Some weeks it may even be as much as 8-10 hours, but the homework is vital to your progress in the program. Like most things in life, you get out of the program what you put into it. We just want people to be well aware of the commitment.  

You do need internet access during the week to work on your homework.
