I heard a fascinating interview on the radio yesterday with Prof. Mark Savickas, a psychologist specialising in the field of career counselling and a pioneer of the narrative career counselling technique. Prof. Savickas explains how the nature of work and careers has changed and how to identify where one belongs. He also demonstrates the narrative counselling technique on the interviewer and some callers. It's very simple and yet very powerful stuff and well worth a listen.
It ties in nicely with Peter F. Drucker's ideas on Managing Oneself in the modern knowledge society.
