What Do You Not Like to Do? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Video] (1:04)

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

What Do You Not Like to Do? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career

 

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:

Again, you have to decide for yourself, though — what your interests are and where they lie. So, gain, these are things you are doing today that you like doing. Then you turn it around. And down here — what are you doing today that you don’t like doing? For me, anything that has any form of bureaucracy or forms or corporate speak drives me mad. I worked in the corporate world for about 15 years and finally realized — and was given lucky happenstance of having a television-writing wife to say (Brrrpppp) “I don’t need you anymore!” and I went to be a freelancer, but that is something that just irks me at every step of the way — that is, bureaucracy, corporate speak. I’m trying to think of what else I do not like. I don’t like being indoors every day. I do like some outside time, although I am a high-tech person I often say “There should be a balance in everyone’s life between high-tech and high-touch.” So, I’ll work on the computer in then morning. I’ll go for a hike in the afternoon.

Finding Your Career North from Transition is the New Normal 2016 [Audio] (1:00)

Transcript:

Think about a standard compass, right? We’ll divide into 4. We’ll put North at the top, up here. South. Oh come on, Doug. I’m not writing with my non-dominant hand now. It should be better, right? There we go.

So I started with the compass and I said, “Ok. like a ship. Say you wanted to go somewhere and you wanted to go somewhere North, right.” If anyone has ever flown or been on or piloted a boat, you know that your course may be here, but you are never “on course” with a boat or an airplane, because you are always being pushed around, but the currents, waves, the winds, whatever. And so your path looks more like this. You’re always constantly correcting. So what I want you to do is I want you to find your true North. I want you to find the “North” that you’re headed towards. You may not be able to go directly there, but over time, you’ll adjust your course over time and keep heading in that way.

Transcript:

Up here in the Northeast what we start to do is we start to note those things we’re doing today — those activities — Again, try to break it down into its smallest, smallest parts — those activities we’re doing today that we like. So, well, for me, I like speaking, Hey. Look at that. And you can actually use the distance from the center as a bit of a gradation. You can say, “I really like speaking or I sort of like it” or you can use it that way. I actually do a garden blog, so I like gardening so that’s an interest I like. I like technology. Technology for me was a vocation and an avocation. I would come home from working all day on computers and play with computers. That was just my interest in life. So, you go through and say “What do you like? I likeb being with children.” I like being outdoors or do you not mind being indoors. Two side of the coin. Maybe you’re more of a person who likes to look at nature through a window rather than be out there fighting off vicious city squirrels fighting for your lunch.

Discover What You Bring to the World from Transition is the New Normal 2016

 

Transcript:

This eventually developed into what I call the Career Compass. This tool has helped me and I think it will help you and it might give you a way to help those around you. Because we often have a difficult time thinking about our own careers and out about own skills and out own benefits that we bring to the world. As was mentioned in the opening, you have to learn how to tell people what you bring to a job. We’re often the worst people to figure that out about ourselves because we don’t think what we do has value. It’s a perverse thing of human nature. It’s very hard for us to express what we think has value about ourselves. it’s one of those areas where it really helps to have someone else around you tell you that and/or help you bring it out yourself.

Where Do You Want to Go? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career  

 

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.

Finding the Spark of Your Career from Transition is the New Normal 2016

 

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.
