Core Themes

What is Core Themes?

A proven career development program that utilizes a unique four-phase methodology to help people discover their true passion and purpose.

A Unique 4-Phase Program

Core Themes is a comprehensive four-phase methodology designed to bring meaning and purpose to the lives of people who feel stuck in their careers, are dissatisfied with their jobs, just starting out, or who want to create change and make a broader impact in the world.

At Core Themes, there are three key elements to achieving happiness and success:

  • You should love the very functions and activities you perform during your workday
  • You should get along with and respect the people you work with
  • You should believe in the company’s vision mission, values, products and services

The Core Themes methodology will help you assess where you are, and inspire you to action.

Phase 1: Assess

The key objective of Phase 1 is to help you know and understand yourself at a deeper level than you now do (career exploration). Phase 1 consists of two critical building blocks that provide the foundation for identifying your Core Themes so that you can experience career happiness.

Why is Career Assessment Important?

Building Block 1: We believe that each person is unique, and therefore, their personal history is unique. Each client’s personal history is recorded in great detail. This career counseling starts with a discussion of where you were born, your early childhood years, family make-up…

Phase 4: Seek
