Core Themes

Phase 2: Your Relationship to the World Around You

Going Deeper: This phase invites you to contemplate your place in the world and what you value most in life. During Phase Two, your career counselor will ask you to put aside the practical concerns of life – bills, family obligations, what you perceive others expect of you, and other rationalizations that cause you to remain “stuck” or unclear about your career direction (we call this mental noise “clutter”) and let your mind run free to contemplate two of life’s most important questions. 

The responses to these questions along with the data from Phase 2 form the basis for discovering and defining your Core Themes. In addition to the self-reflection questions, you will be assigned additional “homework” including several selected readings (The Alchemist & Man’s Search For Meaning, as examples) and a movie or two.
