Summary

Career Flowhighlights the importance of "hope" as a foundation for all aspects of career development - self reflection, self-clarity, visioning, goal setting and planning, implementing and adapting. This book presents creative, innovative, and useful strategies for addressing career challenges in the 21st century. Learning these competencies will serve students throughout their lifetime. Practical activities are provided to help students address a wide range of challenges. The "career flow" metaphor lends itself to a comprehensive and realistic assessment of the career experience. Flow is understood with respect to both whitewater (high demand times) and still water experiences (low demand times). There are many differences in how people understand and appreciate optimal flow conditions; the challenge is to develop strategies for creating the conditions for these experiences. It is also important to learn strategies for coping effectively with less than optimal flow work experiences. In this book, the authors teach students these strategies as each requires specific skills to manage the respective challenges effectively. Each chapter offers objectives, a case example, tips, activities, questions for reflection, and additional resources so that students can master the various aspects of their career flow.
