Can being optimistic and visualizing "success", whether attaining a new job or a "stretch" of a goal, actually play an important role in achieving that goal? Many notable individuals from Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus to Shaquille O'Neal and Olympic Gold Medal winner Janet Evans would heartily concur.
What do these sports greats know about achieving goals and success that could be put to use in a career transition? Well, that question is what prompted Dr. Lynn Joseph to research guided mental imagery and advanced visualization techniques. Her ground-breaking Job-Loss Recovery study (published in the prestigious Consulting Psychology Journal) demonstrated that guided mental imagery CAN shorten job-loss periods for out-of-work professionals by as much as 50% (from 4 months to 2 months).
In fact, her Job-Loss Recovery Program garnered a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Award from the US Department of Health and Human Services.
Join Dr. Lynn Joseph as she is interviewed by William Arruda of the Reach Branding Club (RBC) on Thursday May 22, 2008 (12 noon EST) on "Self Leadership: Achieve Career Transitions and Goals More Quickly and Powerfully with Advanced Visualization Techniques". She will cover:
- What is guided imagery?
- How have world-class athletes used this tool to reach their goals?
- How could this apply to job search and career transition?
- How important is our expectation of success or failure to the outcome?
- What are some suggested uses of guided mental imagery?
Dr. Joseph has been an executive search consultant and has worked with Fortune 100 companies in the management of sales, training, and human resources. Her broad background in the careers arena combined with her Ph.D. in Psychology, has made her a thought leader in visualization techniques and their practical application to real-world goals.
