Finding a Fulfilling Job

Finding a Fulfilling Job

shutterstock_275800298.jpg

HOSTED BY The School of Life

One of the most extraordinary and yet quietly routine assumptions of our age is that we should be able to find work that we can not only tolerate for the money, but profoundly appreciate - work with a high degree of purpose, camaraderie and creativity. We see nothing strange in the remarkable notion that we should try to find a job we love.

This one-day workshop insists that, in order to stand any chance of honouring our desire for meaningful employment, we will need to lavish concentrated brain power, time and imagination on its underlying complexities.

What to expect?

We examine how our expectations about a ‘good job’ were formed. We probe whether these are grounded in reality, and consider a helpful alternate notion of ‘good enough’ work to guide our ambitions. We finish up by considering some of the downsides of all jobs, even those we consider the most fulfilling.

Our culture has set us a devilish problem: promising us that fulfilling jobs exist while, at the same time, leaving us woefully unprepared for how to discover our own aptitudes and appetites. The purpose of this day is to help to correct an epochal problem which quietly gnaws at our lives and tramples upon our legitimate hopes. We come away better able to understand our talents and to move forward using the opportunities that are open to us.

This one day workshop brings together the best of The School of Life’s Work curriculum into a single high intensity session. You can explore our full curriculum here.

(Please be aware, Finding a Fulfilling Job contains material from the following individual classes: How to Identify Your Career Potential, How to Fail, and How to Be Confident).

The Masks We Wear With Dr Tamara Russell

Screenshot 2019-04-18 at 17.44.30.png

HOSTED BY ALLBRIGHT

In line with this year’s Body Image theme for Mental Health Awareness Week, join clinical psychologist, neuroscientist and mindfulness innovator, Dr Tamara Russell, for a thought-provoking exploration of the masks we wear and the gaps between what we perceive, what we really feel and experience, and how we present ourselves to the world.  

Using creative multi-media combined with cutting–edge neuroscience, find out how your brain and mind have been shaped by personal, professional and cultural experiences and how this creates our realities and perceptions around body and image. Explore the gaps between the internal and external realities as we navigate our working lives and consider what is necessary to change some of the more unhelpful inner/outer narratives around women, gender and really being ‘seen’. 

Through a mixture of performance, facilitated discussion, brain ‘bytes’ and mindfulness practices find out what can be done to start reshaping our brains and develop more positive narratives around body image. Actress, writer and Coach Andreea Paduraru will be present to share her intentions and experiences of her piece #seeme from the work in progress Sensorium.  

Tamara’s book #whatismindfulness outlines the neurocognitive model and shows that mindfulness can be anything that taps into these three brain networks. Mindfulness in Motion is her guide on how to incorporate mindfulness training into any movement.
