REWRITE YOUR STORY

Friday, October 7, 2016 and Friday October 14, 2016
9:00 – 11:00 a.m.
at The Greenhouse in St. Petersburg.

Rewrite your life workshop Tampa St PeteJust when the caterpillar thought its life was over, it became a butterfly - proverb

We all have stories (conscious and unconscious), personal “truths” by which we see our lives. Then, we encounter one of life’s inevitable “crossroads,” (job change, divorce, retirement, relocation …) and our truths are challenged, often leaving us afraid or confused or, like the caterpillar, that life is over. This is when we need a rewrite.

Skilled life coaches Pegotty Cooper, FASAE, IOM, MBA and Cyd Charrow, DSW, LCSW, CPC have collaborated on a two-part mini-workshop in which you will first create and then practice your new story. Day one will include understanding the power of a story; identifying your own current story and learning how to generate your new version.

On day two you will solidify your new truth and share it with the group. Both days will be experiential and interactive.

 In your new story, like the butterfly, you not only survive, but Thrive!

Registration fee: $15.00 (includes both sessions)

Last month we covered the topic of Ageism and how society’s view of getting older can create obstacles for those of us who are re-imagining a new stage of life. This month I would like to challenge all of us to stop looking at the perceptions and attitudes of those around us, but rather to look at aging from the inside out. How can we turn those negative stereotypes and predictions into an … [Read More...]

AGE & EXPERIENCE: ADDRESSING THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM

It is time to name the elephants in the room - age and experience!! There is not a week that goes by that I don’t hear from job seekers about how frustrated, angry or simply dumbfounded they are by their inability to land a job that suits their experience! Hiring managers are saying over and over again they are overqualified for the job which is code word for they are too old. The next time you … [Read More...]

FIGURING OUT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT… (in the second half)

It seems like everywhere you turn today – everyone is talking about finding true happiness or finding your true purpose or calling.  An important key theme we hear in all of these areas is that it is an “INSIDE JOB”.  It is not something that someone else can provide for you or a workshop that tells you the ten steps! Why is it so easy for us to quickly identify what we DON'T want but when it … [Read More...]
