“Seek the wisdom that will untie your knot. Seek the path that demands your whole being.” - Rumi
DOROTHY DALTON // IKIGAI COACH
REGION: BRUSSELS, BELGIUM
The global pandemic has left an indelible mark on us all. For many it offered a time for introspection, as millions decided that they wanted something different and more meaningful. But they weren’t sure what exactly. High numbers left their jobs in search of that elusive “something” only to find it didn’t work out.
Could that be you?
They knew they wanted a change that would bring a sense of fulfilment, purpose, and wellbeing. For the longest time they bought into the widely held belief that this would come from finding a “dream” job. They are now seeking workplaces where they feel a sense of belonging and psychological security. They want to feel valued and have their contribution recognised.
The workplace is changing and to quote Lewis Carroll “If you don’t know where you’re going, every road will get you there.”
Organisations are also struggling to respond. The result is confusion.
I am a certified Cognitive Behaviour Coach specialising in career transition, job search and career management programme. I have coached thousands of people around the world and feel Ikigai is a perfect additional element in these changing times to my solution based coaching programme.
At its centre, the programme is about aligning and finding harmony around who we are, what we stand for and gaining clarity around our choices.
Ikigai is unique to every single one of us. It’s rooted in our backgrounds, personalities, experiences, goals, vision, values, beliefs, hobbies, special relationships, and our personalities. It’s not only about the big things (although it can be) but small seemingly insignificant rituals that make up the fabric our daily lives and bring us contentment.
If you are looking to make sense of today’s confusing world and want to explore what will bring meaning and purpose to your daily life both personally and professionally and help you find direction … get in touch.
