CPDV:702 Changing Career Directions: Find the Passion in Your Career Path09/14-10/05  

Rudolph Nureyev said, "Work is sacred." But do you consider your work a sacred and exciting opportunity to express your true self? We spend a good part of our lives expressing ourselves through work and career, therefore it is important that we experience joy and value in what we do. How you invest your time and energy is up to you. It is not so much what happens to you but how you respond to what happens that makes the difference. Join Jean Walters, Transformational Life Coach and author as she aids you in clarifying a career direction and/or establishing a change in career path to enhance your quality of life and increase your fulfillment. You CAN condition yourself for success and reach your full potential. Cost for adults 60 and over $39.50.
