Teachers and school administrators want to facilitate student engagement. Supervisors and managers focus on employee engagement and how it contributes to productivity and retention. Individuals, across the globe, want lives that are meaningful, interesting, and manageable.
The Career Engagement model bridges these silos, providing a conceptual framework for understanding how the right mix of challenge and capacity can result in optimal (and sustainable) engagement, across the lifespan. Without such alignment, individuals can begin to feel overwhelmed or underutilized. Spending too long in either or both of those states can result in disengagement.
Join co-developer of the career engagement model, Dr. Roberta Neault, for an introduction to this model and tips on how to use it with students, parents, community members, employers, and government policy makers to maximize engagement across diverse life roles and settings.
