Lunch & Learn: The Messy Art of ReInventing yourself in Work and Life

Lunch & Learn is our new series that aims to educate and train our community about new trends, technological tools that shape how you think, and learn new professional skills! 

Are you coming up to “middlescence” (midlife + adolescence)? Or are you there already? Are you feeling lost or stuck with your career? Are you asking yourself ‘was that it?’ or ‘what’s next?’

If you answered “yes” to any of the previous questions, then this talk is for you.

According to the book The 100-Year Life, the traditional three-stage life (education, career, retirement) is being replaced by a multi-stage life with new stages and new ages, where age is not a limiting factor! For each of us, this brings potential for greater individual sequencing in our lives.

But how do we do this? By challenging existing social narratives, we can become our own role models. We can redefine our lives by reinventing ourselves and the way we think, live and work.

Intrigued? Then join us at this Lunch & Learn session to learn more about how you can reinvent yourself!

3 Key Takeaways:

  • Learn about the multi-stage life and how that impacts you moving forward.

  • Discover life assets that will help you navigate work and life.

  • Explore unconventional strategies to reinvent your career.
