New Beginnings: Career & Life Options Workshop

New Workshop in San Francisco Bay Area

New Beginnings for Women:
Creating Your Career & Life After Divorce or Separation


sunriseDesigned for women wanting to explore and plan their career and life options during or following a relationship separation or divorce, this workshop will offer an opportunity to explore what might be possible as you negotiate a transition to a new beginning.

In a small, safe and supportive group we will engage in a variety of assessment and reflection activities that will guide you to:

  • Create a vision of what is possible for you in for this next chapter of your life and career, and develop a roadmap to get you there.
  • Identify your transferable and preferred skills – information that can help you create a Unique Value Proposition to focus your career exploration and planning.
  • Understand how your interests, through the Strong Interest Inventory, can direct you towards work and life options where you are most likely to thrive.
  • Discover the tools and information you need to establish career and life goals and an action plan.
  • Develop strategies for staying on track and overcoming the barriers of negative self-talk.

You will leave inspired and motivated to move forward with your vision and implementation of your roadmap and action plan.
