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:

I saw a quote today that just stuck with me from Alice in Wonderland.

She’s talking to the caterpillar and says, “Where should I go? Which road should I take?”

And the Caterpillar says, “I don’t know. Where you do want to go?”

And Alice says, “I don’t know.”

And the Caterpillar says. “Well, then, take either road, ” because if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re never going to get there.

That’s what happens in a lot of people’s careers. So, we take the long laundry list — and I would actually like you guys to do this at some point. I think it’s important for people to do, especially whether you’re struggling or not — sometimes it can illuminate something perhaps you even haven’t internalized or allowed to admit to yourself of an interest that you might have. So, I hope that by stepping through the process with you here today, you’ll have the ability to take this home and maybe try it out yourself.

So, I use the default North American default that good things are always to the North. Our course is always going to be the North. We’re trying to go Due North.

Transcript:

When you have that type of love for your work — and I’ll point to typical places where this arises, like teaching and other areas like that where you are dealing with children especially — if you develop that love, you will work harder. You will produce better. You will do great, great work because you have that little spark — that little extra spark. So one of the things that I have tried to do over the years is help people find that spark. And it started with me — me sitting down after a layoff particularly, going “What the heck do I really like to do and not do and all this stuff?” And then I had a friend some to me and he was in the midst of a transition and he was struggling it just struck me and I said, ‘Here’s what you want to do. Write down everything you do right now. Then write down everything you would want to do — that you enjoy doing and let’s work our way through it.”

If you’e ever flown an airplane — of you’ve ever piloted a boat — you’ll know that you have your bearing on your chart that says I want to go there, but you also know, especially in an airplane which is three dimensional, you’re never on that bearing. Wind is pushing you around. Waves are pushing you around. You may have to go around obstacles. You’re constantly correcting that course and it’s in that correction that the concept of a compass came to me. I thought, “Oh, you have to have that bearing. You have to know where you want to head,” because truth be told, as we all know, reality has a way of rearing its ugly head and you can never go directly where you want to go. You can’t become the CEO of that Fortune 500 company overnight. You’re going to have to plot a course to that position. And that’s what it’s like. You’ll constantly be moving from job to job from opportunity to opportunity and correcting your course, but if you don’t know where you’re going, you’re never going to get there.

Transcript:

When in transition, we often don’t know what the heck we want to do. Ok? And I often see people trapped in the situation of, the work they’ve been doing for 15, 20, 25 years never really was their favorite thing to do. It was presented to them at some point early on in their life — in their work career — and they simply kept doing it, but never really thought about “Do I actually enjoy doing this?” And there’s a reason for that. The old adage, you know, “well, it’s work. It shouldn’t be fun.” I don’t believe in that at all and here’s the simple reason about that. You can do — if your somewhat interested in your work, you can do good work. You might occasionally even do great work occasionally — every couple years. To me, you can never do your best work of you don’t have some other intrinsic interest in hat you’re doing. In some reward that you get from the work you do.

Transcript:

Do you like to work with people? What age of people? Do you like to work with kids? Do you like to work with people your same age? Do you like to work with older people? Where do you want to work? Geographically? Do you want to work in LA? Do you want to work somewhere up in the mountains in Denver, Colorado? You want to work in the Plains. You want live on a South Sea island somewhere and WiFi your work in wherever it needs to be. Think at much lower level about what you enjoy? Do you enjoy music? What type of music? Do you… start to list all these things, because it’s in those ideas, those wants, needs and desires — I call them — that, for me, the key to career exists.

So after that big laundry list of stuff I had him write out, it came to me that there is a way then, that we had to classify what he wrote in some way. Right? You have to figure out, for each item he wrote down, where — is it a good thing or a bad thing? Is it a want or is it not? And that’s where the idea of the compass came up.
