HEART-Based Career Planning: What It Is + What It Isn’t



Today we are defining your core + lifestyle values, which is the foundation for HEART-Based career planning. 

Prioritizing your values makes it easier to say hell YES or NO when making career decisions. HEART-based career planning is about aligning YOU and your work. When you have meaning in your work, it is the core of your energy. It compels you to take action and sustains your energy to move forward with purpose.

Taking a heart-based approach to career planning is different — it’s not about polishing up your resume, networking with strangers, or applying to hundreds of jobs that…well, don’t exactly get you excited anyway.

It’s about pausing — taking the time to reflect on what’s next, learning how to match your unique skills and experiences with desired positions, and executing a thoughtful search. 

So join me as we figure out how to land your next best job in a way that aligns with your heart and is comfortable for you.

Action Steps to Apply to YOUR journey

Here are THREE inquiries for you:

  1. What are your core values?  
  2. What are your lifestyle values? 
  3. What are the things you DO NOT value in your career.

Once you have your list, you will want to prioritize them and develop a list of 5 to 7 top values/priorities. 

From there, it’s time to PROACTIVELY find organizations that connect to your core and lifestyle values! Because you deserve a long, radiantly happy + healthy career.
