Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career with Douglas E. Welch 

Tell People

 

Read the book

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

The two biggest challenges are deciding what you want to do as a career and then building the career you deserve once you decide.

I discuss the Career Compass method of discovering your career wants, needs and desires and then using various social media tools to show people “What you do and how well you do it”

Transcript:

This is going to sound really weird. I always get some odd looks when I talk about it in this way, but there are a couple of things you need to be doing — today — if you aren’t doing them already to start the opportunities coming to you. The word — the phrase you’re going to hear me say again and again and again in this next section is “You need to be showing people —
constantly — what you do and how well you do it.” If you are not doing that on a daily basis you are limiting yourself — you are limiting your opportunities and you’re putting yourself in the position of having to beg for a job. “What you do and how well you do it.” Now, as you can imagine, back in 1986 — 1980 — yeah 86 — when I entered the work market, the tools to do something like that — to tell people what you do and how well you do it — didn’t really exist.

Transcript:

But we have the ability to change. We — that we do like variety. I’m a variety freak. I love variety. I hate having the same meals every week and all that. I want a variety of things. but there are some people who prefer more stable environment. That’s fine. For your own benefit sometimes, we need to inject a little bit of change into ourselves. Then use those opportunities — those ideas as a way of saying, “Well, I can do that.” Maybe sometimes, it’s very funny, because it’s the smallest things that can break through your thinking sometimes. I’m wearing my red power speaking socks that I always wear when Igo out to speak and sometimes just changing the color of your socks. Sometimes just changing how your brush your hair. It doesn’t — it’s not these gut wrenching, life altering, divorce-related, move to South Sea Island, changes in our life that we should feel that we’re trying to accomplish. We’re simply trying to “tickle” things a little bit.

Transcript:

This goes back to what I said about serendipity. We never know where great career opportunities are going to come from. They could just as easily come to us from the person sitting next to us at the Starbucks or whatever as they could from some formal job ad on Monster.com and sending in your resume and doing all of that. In fact, I believe that in this day the opportunities that come from the Starbucks person are going to be more plentiful and they’re also going to be more profitable and more to your liking. They’re going to be scary. They’re going to be different. They’re going to force you to think in new and different ways and they’re going to force you to think about flipping that job search over and start to do things that attract opportunity to you.

Transcript:

It’s an opportunity for you to readjust your course. To perhaps see where you’ve been on a path that is not the path for you. Which is perhaps why — layoffs are horrible because it usually has — in most cases — I would say 99% of the cases — it has nothing to do with you. A lot of us have been in that position. That project didn’t come through. That sale didn’t get made. Well, guess, what? We don’t have the work for the people we’ve staffed up to do. Take that to heart and see this truly as an opportunity for you to move beyond a company that is perhaps struggling or needs to evaluate its own priorities and evaluate your own. See this as an opportunity to get a little “kick in the butt” sometimes which we all need on many occasions and more forward.

7 Questions That Lead to an ‘Aha Moment’, According to Research via Inc.

May 3rd, 2017 Comments off

Innovation isn’t just something that happens once or twice and then is forgotten until it is needed again. Innovation is something we need to do every day and in every way in our life and careers. Here are 7 questions that can reenergize your innovation thinking and help you build the best life, businesses and careers possible. — Douglas

7 Questions That Lead to an 'Aha Moment', According to Research via Inc.

At the heart of any successful business is a great idea. But how do some entrepreneurs dream up game-changing idea after game-changing idea while others fade into mediocrity?

Cracking the code on “aha moments” and creative epiphanies is a topic Stanford Start X innovation experts Olivia Fox Cabane and Judah Pollack explore in their latest book, The Net and the Butterfly: The Art and Practice of Breakthrough Thinking.

Turns out, it’s not magic — it’s neuroscience.

They say there’s a way to systemically tap cognitive processes that generate insights. It comes down to stimulating associative thinking, a process in which the brain pieces together disparate information to solve problems in unique ways using skills like questioning, observing, networking, and experimenting.

Transcript:

We’re used to — in this day and age — a job environment which I say is ending, not rapidly enough for my liking, but it is ending of where we take our resume. we go “hat in hand” and we beg for a job. That’s really — ever since I ‘ve been in the workforce — ever since our parents have been in the workforce that’s been the model. You say “Please give me a job!” It’s even how you talk about it. When someone says they/ve hired you, they say “Yeah, I gave him a job.” Well, I like to think you didn’t give them a job. You hired the person who had the skills you need. Just the terminology used, to mean, is backward and off. It will probably never happen in my lifetime, but my goal for the work world — and I hope that some of you will be able to implement this in your own life — is instead of going out “begging’ for the next job or the next or this or the other is that you attract opportunity to you.
