This is the amount of time that the average person will spend at work in their lifetime according to Jessica Pryce-Jones in her book Happiness At Work.
If you are currently in your 30s or even 40s, you probably have more than 50% of this time still to come. This course will help you make these hours at work count.
It will help you to...
A. Understand how you can best align your job with your personal and professional goals.
B. Identify which skills and strengths you want to use and develop in order to feel fulfilled.
C. Be in the driving seat when it comes to finding job opportunities that will help you to fulfill your broader life goals.
Who is it for?
This course is for you if you are a professional who is:
... feeling unfulfilled with your job
... looking for guidance in making a decision about making a career pivot
... searching for a new job and want to make sure that you make the right decision
... trying to make a career change but you are unsure how or where to begin or what else you can do
... going back to work after a career break and want help thinking through what you want in the next phase of your career.
What to expect from the course:
This course consists of five video lectures and a workbook containing five self-coaching exercises that are aimed at raising your self-awareness. The exercises will help you to identify what matters to you most and what your motivations are for working. They will also enable you to prioritise the skills that you want to use and develop going forward. Finally, you will learn how you can use the information that you have gathered about yourself to plan the next steps that you need to take in order to achieve your life and career goals.
This course can be completed in three hours but it is highly recommended that you take as much time as you feel is needed to really get the most out of it.

Hi there! I’m Nerice Gietel.
I am a Certified Executive Coach, workshop facilitator and the Founder and CEO of The Career Lounge and of this school. The purpose of this school is to help experienced professionals to better navigate their careers through personal development courses.
I am currently more than 15 years into my professional career. Throughout this time I have continued to develop myself by completing multiple postgraduate qualifications; but I have also made upwards, sideways and even downward moves in my career constantly looking for something ‘different and better'. My personal definition of what 'better' means has and continues to change.
One constant in my career has been the enormous satisfaction I get from helping others find their 'different and better'. I have set up this online school to help you find your 'different and better’ in your career and life.
