All of my education, work experience and life experience has lead me to this – empowering others to work towards the career they wand and/or to manage the one they have.

I had been teaching on and off for the past 40 years, and I really didn’t want to end my working life as a teacher. I needed to do something else. I had always had a burning passion to make art and wanted to branch into that. To be honest, I didn’t know how.

After Several sessions with Jo, I was able to define where I wanted to take my art. I wanted to draw images of rural Australia and have them printed on linen tea towels- this was to give rural Australia a visual voice.

It was those sessions with Jo that enabled me to identify my strengths and weaknesses (and work on both). As well as this, she helped me plot out a business plan, and define my goals.

Most of all she gave me the confidence to take my work and creative life into another direction – one that was more in sync with me now.

Her sessions with me helped develop clarity of thought that gave me the confidence to pursue another path and my dreams.

The quality of life within the context of work is making retaining good employees more challenging. In an era where it is reported that Gen Z sees purpose as the core to work, Gen Y seek meaningful work and Gen X seeks to leave a legacy, it is prudent that organisations equip their employees with tools to align themselves purposefully with their work.

Jo Pilon of Expand Careers delivered a very engaging and meaningful workshop at Thurgoona Community Centre.

Jo provided tools for participants to step out of the day-to-day mechanics of work and take a bird’s eye view at the “why” behind their efforts. The tools she provides allow the attendees to identify important personal values and aspirations to be translated into plans for future progress and development.

These are also helpful for the preparation to inform workplace appraisal processes and help employees to align themselves within the work environment and their aspirations for development.
