Many old school norms and expectations have fallen away and are no longer true or serving anyone. Accelerating change and the associated uncertainty and ambiguity creates upset, resentment, intolerance of differences, and threatens wellbeing, enthusiasm, and hope for a better future. Not surprisingly, navigating change, preparing for the unknown future that lies ahead, and how to “fit in,” survive, or succeed is on the minds of both young and senior professionals.
Professionals are experiencing stress and anxiety, worrying more will not change our circumstances for the better. There is truth in the understanding that it takes determination and perseverance to be successful, yet the well-worn path of yesterday is insufficient to be on track to enjoy success and wellbeing going forward.
If you want to understand how best to prepare for your professional future, develop disciplines that convert knowledge into wisdom, and enjoy personal empowerment with transferrable value into the future, The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance has a program for you.
The Essentials for Professional Mastery program recognizes that the old expectations on how to work, balance life objectives, and achieve career fulfillment, requires a new way of learning, growing, and creating the change desired. Job security and career fulfillment requires a new way of “seeing” the future and creating the future each day. There are indeed aspects of human nature necessary for growth, for example, building competence, resilience, and value is timeless. The Essentials for Professional Mastery is provocative and will evoke a sense of possibility for participants that is beyond their current thinking and myriad societal myths and misperceptions.
The five-session program provides guidance on a Mastery framework for professional growth through all phases of professional life including career development, career transitions into new roles, accountabilities, cultures, and types of organizations. The program shares the vantage point of an executive coach who has held various roles and accountabilities and worked with nearly all sectors of the economy and with professionals in all stages of their career, and myriad concerns and aspirations.
