About the Class

This master class focuses on teaching students to coach their clients using Positive Psychology and Strategic Career Design interventions.

Students will learn how to transition clients from career burn out and toxic work environments to meaningful careers that provide more wealth, time, freedom, and meaning. They will also learn how to help clients recraft their current jobs into more satisfying work and, at times, into deeply rewarding callings.

The course material will focus on the literature from positive psychology and its applications to career decisions, assessment tools, career selection, career recrafting and strategic career design.

Students will learn how to assist clients with finding their career passion and life mission, identifying their character strengths, and discovering the paths to career happiness.

Coaching students will learn practical tools to expand business with executives, businesses, and individual clients with case studies and live coaching sessions. Students will be trained to apply their career coaching skills across the life span development with clients from early career, midlife, retirement and to those in the last third of life who are starting anew and plan never to retire.
