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

Learn By Doing from Using the Career Compass To Find Your Work And Career

 

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:

…and I know learning by doing these days is coming and going. We’ve got this whole “Maker Ethic” that’s coming out now about getting kids hands-on, STEM and STEAM programs and stuff like that. I personally think that the best way to learn is having some component of doing. Yes, there are certain things you just need to learn, but there’s also — if you can learn something and apply that learning immediately in some physical or useful or productive method. For me, I know that would lock in facts that I retain to this day from my high school botany class that I should, by no rights, need or want to remember, but they are burned into a groove in my brain because we talked about it in the classroom and we went down to the greenhouse and we did it and that has always been so effective for me. This is one form of your doing.

Engage with Transition at EVERY Opportunity from Transition is the New Normal 2016

 

Transcript:

To finish up today…kind of reiterate some of the things we talked about. Transition is normal down to using your opposite hand to write with. It’s normal and the feelings it generates are normal. That uncomfortableness. That fear. That clumsiness. That — the fact that sometimes you feel a little stupid with this hand, but it is normal. It’s with us in everything we do. It’s with us when we miss the turn on the freeway and go up an exit. It’s just there. You deal.   We need to keep — we need to engage in transition at every opportunity that we see it. We need — wee need to stop — if you’re doing this — avoiding it and pushing it away. We need to reach out and shake its hand and engage with it. Frankly, because transition is where so many opportunities will come in your life.

Transcript:

It’s your job to put that stuff out there. There’s a famous study from a creativity book many years ago — many decades ago — where they took 2 art classes and they said “Art Class A. Your job is to produce the perfect pot. You have all semester. Produce the perfect pot.” Ok? They went to the second class and said “Class. Your job is to produce as many pots as you can possibly do in the semester. Ok? Quality doesn’t matter just produce as many pots as you possibly can.” Then they had a little show at the end of the semester and they brought the pots together from the “quantity” class and the “quality” class. Guess which class was judged to have the highest quality of pot?These guys. Quantity is important if you’re learning from each one you do. Thet fact is, while this class was trying to perfect a pot, this class was throwing out tons and tons of pots and hopefully learning with every single pot they made. What did work, What didn’t work, so that by the end of the semester they were able to produce a high-quality pot because they simply learned by doing.

Some Stability Gives Us Freedom To Be Adventurous from Transition is the New Normal 2016

 

Transcript:

Another thing — back to what you were saying too — those stable parts of our life are important to us because it’s that stability that allows us the freedom to be a bit more adventurous. Having X number of dollars in the bank. You’re not going to go crazy, but you have the freedom to read that new book or do this or visit this museum or — it provides you a base platform to stand on and say, “Ok. at this point in my life, I’m stable. I understand that. Things are a little crazy up here, but I have this place to stand and now I can start to reach out — without fear — and say “What else is out there? What else can I investigate?”

Transcript:

…and what I find is, the minute you have a place to put stuff like that you start to think about stuff that you want to put there and this can be in any job. This can be a plumber, a chemist, a doctor, a lawyer, a psychologist — it doesn’t matter. You need a place for these interesting ideas that you stumble across in your work and your life that you can share with other people that demonstrate clearly “What you do and how well you do it.” I have — again, I’m a tech guy — I have 5 blogs, because they’re all broken out by interest and my interest are so varied, but the fact is, you just need someplace because in our search engine based world, our Google, Googlized world, you don’t know who’s going to see that. Just like we don’t know who we’re going to sit next to at the coffee shop, we don’t know who is going to do a search on some obscure enzyme reaction with a protein or something and happen upon across your blog about your research into that area. You don’t know. You CAN’T know.

Transcript:

But since the invention of the Internet, we now have a series of tools that make it easy .cheap — if not free — in most cases — and provide you a way of reaching out to a world of opportunity that wasn’t ever possible before. The best way of telling people what you do and how well you do it is to tell somebody about it and one of the first things I tell most people to do is start a blog. A blog can be anything. Free services all over the place to set up a blog. WordPress. Blogger. Tumblr. Twitter can be considered a microblog if you will. The reason I start with a blog is when I talk with people I say “Well, what do you want to do?What are your skills? What are you interested in? What neat things  have you done?” They’ll start off saying “Oh I don’t have anything interesting to say. Everybody has something interesting to say. Everybody has some unique that they do, but they don’t have a place to tell people about 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.

Exercising Your Transition “Muscle” from Transition is the New Normal 2016 [Video] (0:58)

Exercising Your Transition

 

Transcript:

Taking that different drive to work. That’s another creativity exercise. They’ll tell people sometimes, “You’re thinking is kind of stuck?Go to work a different way that you’ve never gone before.” Turn off Waze and pick which way you want to go and just randomly go somewhere. Sometimes, if I’m not in a time crunch. I’m coming back from a client or something like that, I’ll just drive down the streets that I’ve never driven down before. There are streets in the San Fernando Valley — I’ve lived here 30 years — I’ve never driven down before and sometimes it’s just like “ahh, let’s take a right here.” It keeps your thinking fresh. It keeps that transition “muscle” — the flexibility muscle — toned. We know if we don’t use a physical muscle it atrophies and it makes it all the more harder to use it down the road. Same thing, to me, happens with transition and change. The less we change — the less we engage with change — the less comfortable we are with it.
