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).

Tackle Your Inner Critic: Increase Your Confidence in Work and Life

confidence

HOSTED BY The Guardian

Learn how to lessen the power of your inner critic, feel more confident, fulfil your potential and increase your resilience in this encouraging evening class.


Most of us are guilty of being harder on ourselves than we are on others. The things our inner critic tells us about our progress and worth are things we would never say to a friend - and this can have devastating effects on our personal and professional development. We are living in an epidemic of self-criticism; everyone suffers with it, even very successful people.

If you want to fulfil your potential and learn how to realise your self-worth, you will need to battle your inner critic - but this can be a daunting task; how do you shut off that negative voice?

Enter leading life coach Fiona Buckland, who has worked with organisations including the School of Life, the United Nations, Google and many more. In her evening class, she will show you how to break the vicious cycle of self-doubt and setbacks, providing you with skills and techniques that you can integrate into your everyday life.

You will come away feeling confident in your abilities to reduce the power of your inner critic, diminish negative self-talk, and with an increased connection to those inner resources that energise and inspire you into positive action - even in challenging times. You will also learn how to be more present, to notice your habits of negative thinking, and how to take action with courage and compassion so that you can be more positive, effective, resilient and successful in every aspect of your life.
