Doors 11:30, Program 11:45-12:45pm
CMJT and AARP Minnesota Present:
Connecting with Life’s Purpose at Work:
Workplace Transition and Career Change
What’s your reason for getting up in the morning?????
We know that having purpose in life leads to effectiveness at work, better health and overall happiness. Another name for it is having a “calling” and at work the opposite is “punching the clock.” In reality, our talents, passions and values are not always in alignment. Even when the power to make a change is within our control it can be hard to let go. Sometimes we know it’s time for a change but don’t know what’s next. Other times that change is forced upon us.
Jay Haapala is associate state director of AARP Minnesota, working with communities across the state of Minnesota to address issues facing older adults. He has led hundreds of workshops that help people navigate work-life transitions, whether job-searching, purposeful career changes, retirement or anything in-between. He has learned from experts and professional coaches, but also from the experience of program participants who share the insights of their own journeys.
