Your Own Reunion – Career Resilience and Coming Home to Yourself: The most deeply gratified people are those who like Shakespeare suggested, are authentic with themselves. “To thine own self be true and it must follow as the night the day, thou can’ts not then be false to any man.” The word vocation has at its root vocare, which means to have a voice, allowing who you are to come forth, in essence coming home to ourselves. The best resume then becomes a projective job description for your best future, matching what you really enjoy.
Is Who I used to be, Who I am now?: Differentiating ourselves in the competitive job market calls for an understanding of how we show up fully – what parts of us need to show up more, what parts are better left in background? Think about when you were most gratified and satisfied, as opposed to just accomplished (however so measured and regardless of by whom), and solicit ideas from others to craft your “set of specials” that no one else has, a personal value proposition, your brand, that portrays both your public and private values.
Costumes and Masks – Their Uses and Abuses: How much of you shows up at work, and how much is “masked?” Sadly, we learn to wear masks quite often to fit in, unknowingly adding hidden stress and anxiety by hiding from who we really are. Taking steps to become more “reunited” with yourself, able to diffuse distinctions between the you at work and the you outside of work, includes internal mood and temperature checks, as well as external checks to gage how others are responding to you.
