Unique Addition to Career Pathfinding
on May 27, 2005
"Shifting Into Higher Gear" will help my counseling of young men and women who are pondering their career options. It not only includes "how to get a job," but starts the journey by breaking ground in the much harder "based on my values, passions, and calling, which job(s) should [I] seek?"
Many people I counsel use relatively few parameters to evaluate work options. Money, prestige, and expediency direct most people. But if you're trying to add the critical dimensions of self-actualization and/or expressing God's work through your gifts, this is the book for you.
Included are a recap of what Spiritual Gifts are and how to combine them with deep interests to find your sweet spot. I'd also recommend Marcus Buckingham's "Now, Discover Your Strengths," because it complements these efforts. But Siciliano and Caliguire reach further. Their appropriately named book is a valuable addition to the space because it will help many people in their quest for "Shifting Into Higher Gear."
