Can Your Career Improve After a Divorce?
Can Your Career Improve After a Divorce?

 

A while back I wrote about career coaching within the context of a separation or divorce (click here to see that post).

 

It’s a challenging time when most people re-evaluate many aspects of their lives. This reevaluation sometimes leads to additional changes. More recently,  I wrote a second article on this topic with a focus on the workplace implications of divorce.

 

Here’s an encouraging article from the November 6, 2015,  Globe Careers section, Report on Business, Globe and Mail on the question: Can getting a divorce help your career? I was pleased to share my ideas on this question with columnist Leah Eichler. The full text of the article can be read here.

 

If you or someone you know is concerned about their career following a divorce, please share this story with them. Contact me by email, phone, or via direct message on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook.

 

More than career coaching, it’s career psychology®.

Job dissatisfaction is at an all-time high. Despite fears of a recession, the Big Quit is still underway, with more and more people quitting their jobs in search of something better. I’ve written previously about the Big Quit phenomenon, and how the uncertainty of the pandemic has impacted our work-related choices. Certainly, wages are a major factor in this decision-making process. With the cost of living rising and wages not keeping pace, it’s no wonder that people are looking for greener pastures. But there’s one key factor that’s driving a lot of churn in organizations …

Black Psychology – What is it and why is it important?

Black Psychology – What is it and why is it important?

While largely unknown, Black Psychology as a discipline has an established history. As a graduate student, Dr. Helen stumbled upon a book called Black Psychology (Third Edition) which was published in 1991. The book addressed the need to develop a Black perspective on the conceptualization, research, and practice of Psychology. So many years later, with so few Black psychologists in Canada and the United States, there still is a significant gap in the field. This Q&A blog provides a quick overview.
