How to Identify Your Career Potential

What is ‘How to Identify Your Career Potential’?

How to Identify Your Career Potential is a 3 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our classroom at our London HQ. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture. The aim of this class is to help you to develop a core emotional skill.

Why should I attend?

Many of us would ideally like to find a job that is satisfying, meaningful and allows us to use our full potential. Yet often it’s hard to pinpoint what exactly this may be and how to match this job with our true talents and interests.

There is hope for finding a job we can love and this begins with knowing ourselves, identifying our true goals and grasping what to do next. The move towards identifying your career potential can be explored through unfolding our aspirations and developing a clear-headed, realistic plan as to what our next professional steps should be.

What will I learn?

In this class you will

  • Receive an introduction to a rigorous set of concepts and exercises to help us understand our career potential.
  • Discover how to align our potential with the opportunities of the professional world.
  • Explore our personalities and sift through our authentic interests.
  • Consider a variety of blocks and inhibitions which prevent us from pushing forward with our instincts and desires.
  • Pay particular attention paid to parental and societal expectations.

This class costs £55 and is run by an experienced, compassionate member of our faculty. You can read more about our faculty here.
