Peter Cappelli

The Future Success of the American Worker

The employer/employee relationship has undergone profound transition in recent years. Organizations that once provided job security and professional development opportunities no longer do so. Short-term contract relationships are becoming more common. Professional development funds and career development programs are left to the devices of employees. The recent economic downturn affected older workers, as well as those entering the workforce in unprecedented numbers. Add to that the paradox of the skills gap, where employers can’t find the talent to fill jobs while millions are unemployed during the worst job market in modern times. And, how does education fit into this whole picture?

Professor Cappelli has chronicled much of this transition as it has happened and was named one of the 20 most influential thinkers by HR Magazine in 2011. He will discuss the new realities of work, how individuals can and should take more responsibility for career management and training, and how we as career professionals can help them.

The Job-Loss Recovery Program

As professionals who work with individuals who have lost their job, we know that a client who does not project positive emotional energy is a less effective job seeker, despite the best resume or job search skills. This program is an answer to that missing piece – a proven process of guided visualization that inspires the client to see, to believe and then take the action to quickly move them toward their chosen career. The training prepares career counselors, mental health counselors, coaches, EAP and HR professionals to facilitate a scientifically proven process with clients so that they can regain mental toughness and emotional resilience. The training is based on Dr. Lynn Joseph’s innovative research and award-winning book, The Job Loss Recovery Program Guide: The Ultimate Visualization System for Landing a Great Job Now, which was named the best emotional recovery book by the Washington Post. Workshop content includes a discussion of guided visualization and supporting research, high profile athletes and how they use visualization to develop mental toughness, the process that comprises JLRP, along with supporting research and results published in Consulting Psychology Journal, and role play with colleagues in the workshop and actual facilitation of the JLRP with a selected client or friend after the workshop

PDI Cost includes a two-hour webinar and an online certification exam within a few weeks after the PDI (earn NBCC  credit hours), as well as the latest editions of The Job-Loss Recovery Program Guide ebook and The Job-Loss Recovery Program guided visualizations (audio mp3).
