    Remote Career Coaching: A Facilitated Discussion

    Rich Feller, PhD
    Thu Feb 9/Fri Feb 10, 2023

    A few years ago, we worried about the ethics of meeting with clients using online technology like Zoom.  During the pandemic most of us were forced into remote coaching/counseling, and we discovered that online meetings allow us to use our time more efficiently. Now is a good time to assess the strengths and weaknesses of this type of technology in career coaching/counseling.  Rich Feller, one of the developers of Conversations Matter - a highly effective use of this type of technology, will lead this discussion. 

    Note: This is not a lecture.  This is a discussion and will make extensive use of breakout rooms.  You are not required to turn on your camera, but we do expect you to share your thoughts.  We ask that each attendee be prepared to share your thoughts and ideas with other attendees.

    The HEROIC Mindset: Navigating a Lifetime of Transitions

    Recorded on December 12, 2017

    Without a HEROIC mindset, the Smart Machine Age leaves workers nervously employed and worried about becoming invisible. HEROIC is an acronym for six behaviors which can help you and your clients to stay focused on what really matters.  Using this acronym with clients can help them to live more fulfilling lives.  Two highly effective interventions (www.youscience.com and the Who You Are Matters! personal discovery game) will also be explained.

    Peer Supervision for the Helping Professional

    By Dr. Timothy Hsi
    Recorded on January 27, 2021

    Traditionally, practitioners from the helping professions are required to receive clinical supervision form a senior practitioner/supervisor as part of their professional development.  However, as career practice in much of the Asia Pacific region is still in its early stages of development, there are currently very few qualified career supervisors within the community.  Until this changes, a highly effective alternative is for career practitioners to engage in peer supervision as part of their professional development.  This approach harnesses the power of social learning (Bandura, 1971) which proposes that new behaviors can be acquired by observing and emulating others.  Dr. Timothy Hsi will explain the process of peer supervision and the benefit for organizations.

    Dr. Timothy Hsi is the Founding President of the Career Development Association of Singapore (CDAS) and founder of Abundanz Consulting Pte Ltd.  He was instrumental in the development of a whole new generation of career practitioners in Singapore from 2015.  Dr. Tim currently teaches career counseling and psychotherapy at the Australian College of Applied Psychology and travels regularly across Asia, educating and training individuals to be career practitioners.

    Reimagining the Future of Career Services

    By Dr. Rich Feller
    Recorded on February 23, 2021

    Farouk Dey suggested that career practitioners must limit focusing on talking 1-1 with individuals about their own interests, values, needs and goals, and instead focus on enabling clients to make audacious moves through immersive experiences and consequential connections.  Can services be scalable to reach the majority of clients/students being confronted by technological and social changes.  Can we help clients/students challenge the social access and hierarchical pyramid where only a few can reach their goal and serve each client/student equally.  Join APCDA’s US Representative Dr. Rich Feller to dive deeper into these ideas and envision a new future for career practitioners.

    The Use of Metaphors in Career Development

    by Norm Amundson
    Recorded on February 12, 2018

    Story telling is an integral part of career development. A key component within stories are the metaphors being used by clients, counsellors and coaches. Metaphors encourage imagination, add clarity, and help to build understanding. In this presentation, he will be expanding on many of the themes (and metaphors) included in his book “Metaphor Making” and will be exploring the dynamics of metaphors and analogical reasoning. He also will be sharing some practical career development exercises that build upon metaphors and lead to greater self-awareness, clarity, and action. This session will be of interest to a broad range of career educators and practitioners.

    The Journey of Becoming a Self-Sustained Career Center by Employer Partnership

    By Francesca Saracino
    Recorded June 9, 2020

    The Career Service of Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading public universities for Engineering, Architecture and Design, has been active for about 15 years and it has grown from a team of 5 to a team 19 and from serving 1,000 to over 10,000 students every year, thanks to a business model based on fee-based partnerships with employers. In my webinar I will share the journey that has led the Career Service to become free from the uncertainty of central budget, bringing insights that will surely help you see how this can apply to your context as well.

    Francesca Saracino is Head of the Career Service office at Politecnico di Milano, one of Europe’s top leading universities for technical studies. Being a native American-Italian bilingual and having obtained a Master degree in Languages and Cultural Mediation, she sees how students and employers need help in understanding each other because they speak different languages. The Career Service she manages is entirely self-financed and serves 45,000 students with 19 people in staff. Since 2018, she also manages the first Diversity & Inclusion Program of the University, called POP (Pari Opportunità Politecniche). Previously, she worked as an English language teacher and translator.  Francesca is also a lindy-hop dancer, yoga learner, occasional singer and concert addict.
