What is
Core Themes?

We believe there are three key principles to achieving happiness and success in your career. You should:

  2. Respect and enjoy the people in your workplace
  3. Believe in the mission, values, and products of your workplace

We’ve designed our comprehensive, in-depth methodology to help you find clarity and understanding so you can make informed and intentional decisions about your career direction. Our professional counselors take you deep below the surface and guide you past clutter to your true potential!

Four Phases of Core Themes

"You owe it to yourself to be relentless in finding the kind of work that is fulfilling and meaningful to you. Anything less and you are compromising your happiness." - Ray Inglesi

Our career development program, Core Themes, is not a career guidance seminar or career assessment test; it is a proven system that utilizes a unique four-phase methodology to help people of all ages and types find their true passion and purpose in their career and life. If you currently view work as a “means to an end” just to pay the bills, and you long for your work to have deeper meaning and purpose beyond “making a living,” then Core Themes is for you!
