Upcoming Workshop –
Career SOS:  Getting Help on Shiny Object Syndrome 

Date:  Saturday, July 20th – 9-4PM 
: Dovercourt House


Have you been thinking about making a career change for awhile now? Many career changers experience “shiny-object syndrome” (SOS) when they start looking for their next role. Deep down you want to make a successful career change, but don’t know where to start. You have too many interests and options. You lack clarity, focus and direction when you’re trying to make career decisions – tiny or big. You overthink career decisions you’ve made or opportunities you’ve said “no” to.


  • The timing never seems to be right – you really want this to work

  • You lack the courage to take a leap into a new role or field because it could mean losing what you’ve worked so hard to achieve already

  • You can’t get excited about applying for jobs and find yourself unsure of what to search for

  • You’re tired of mindlessly scrolling through job ads

The truth is, you deserve to make a career change that feels natural to you.

This workshop is designed to help you gain clarity on your career change – tiny or big. Give yourself the time and space to truly reflect. Learn how to focus your energy on work that is aligned with your values and what energizes you.
