Hello there. Since 1987 I have been developing, delivering and training others to deliver, a career decision making and development program, The Implicit Career Search.
ICS is designed to help individuals clarify who they intend to be and how their work will make a positive difference in our world. It is rewarding, and somewhat bemusing, for me to realize that the program is now being delivered throughout North America and Europe, guiding thousands of individuals toward joyous and impactful careers.
As I finally come close to considering ICS to be a 'finished product' I notice my passion is turning toward helping people get 'unstuck' in other areas of their life. I am determined to bring you the most no-nonsense, effective and safe techniques available to help you become as real as you would like to. Which, I suspect, is the wisest thing you can do.
"The Implicit Career Search will not tell you what you should be. Instead it will teach you how to plan for your future with an approach that will keep you one step ahead of any upcoming shifts in the world of work. You will complete your ICS experience with the vision and clarity of a leader and build a plan that will see you become an expert and creator in your chosen field."
