The Wayfinder Chronicles
Welcome to the beginning of our shared chronicles of stories, musings, reviews, lessons, and inspirations for designing the life and career you want.
It is hard to get and keep one’s bearings in a rapidly changing economic and career landscape. Responding in a VUCA world, one that is volatile, uncertain, chaotic, and ambiguous, challenges our sense of what we know or can predict. These conditions require intel on the constantly changing conditions and a team of fellow wayfinders to help us along the way.
Your journey may be a sprint or a marathon, no one knows how long it will take.
“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.”
Given the inherent uncertainty, it is best to plan for the long haul while implementing processes with the greatest probability for success.
No matter where you are in your trek, every perspective, helps us to learn together, and keep the momentum to move forward. The new ground we are breaking together requires a shift in our thinking from fear of the unknown to one of vision, understanding, courage and agility. A new framing of VUCA.
We hope you will share your discoveries in the Wayfinder Chronicles (and in the Wayfinder Collaborative coming soon) as we navigate this new job search reality together.
