New Self-discovery Book 'Finding Passion' Answers Career Questions
"Finding Passion: A Self-Discovery Approach To Navigate Career Crossroads," blends autobiography, social science and professional coaching into a powerful new book for success-driven individuals asking, "What do I really want?" An excerpt of Finding Passion is available for preview.
The workbook, authored by Jessica Manca, Vancouver Executive Coach and Founder of Managing Mindspaces, helps readers define the future and challenge limiting thinking through coaching questions, written exercises and self-management strategies.
In 2010, Manca underwent a major transformation. She returned to work after starting a family expecting to continue as planned with her successful career within management consulting. She instead experienced burnout and struggled with the decision of staying in a job which left her unfulfilled. She overcame self-perceived limitations about her long-term career path by working with a coach. She's most proud of the personal process she went through to trust herself again and realign to living the life she wanted.
"Finding my Passion brought my life back to center. I'm grounded in knowing who I am and what's important in my life," according to Manca. "This process helped me see that just because I'm good at my job, my job may not be good for me."
The workbook contains ten chapters and exercises along with her personal story to inspire readers to see they're not alone. Now a professional coach, Manca works with clients who feel stuck in their careers. Through personal coaching and using the self-awareness exercises within the book, she helps clients make better decisions and live the life they want.
Unlike other self-help resources, self-discovery encourages understanding oneself and gaining knowledge through self-awareness. The book is not a how-to but a coaching and personal change framework to find answers in an individual's quest to have a fulfilling career.
