The Way of the Sensitive ~ Episode 18 Transitioning into Authentic Careers.
Oh I could have talked to today’s guest for HOURS, hence the slightly longer than usual length of this podcast.
Deborah Chalk is a Martha Beck trained life coach who specialises in career and life purpose and, as a bonus she is also a highly sensitive person.
We chat about life transitions in general and how they uniquely impact those of us that are highly sensitive.
In particular we discuss:
- How to recognise a “should” career and an authentic career
- Why we choose a should career
- How authentic careers tend to feel reckless and not like a “real job” Both Deborah and I share our personal experience of career transitions and the inner resistance we both needed to overcome in order to do work that truly nourished ourselves
- How to support yourself in any transition and change of identity. Deborah identifies the role that creativity, nutrition and our inner dialogue plays whilst we are in transition.
- The 3 B’s that you can use to when you are stuck in a job that you don’t like
- How to make Sunday night blues a thing of the past.
As always, join us in the free facebook group to deepen the conversation.
