Week 5: Sources of support
This week you will consider physical health, emotional well-being and finances – the personal resources you can draw on. These may feel unrelated to your career, yet finding clarity and addressing issues in these areas can make a big difference to how you feel. You will consider how the ‘I am’ part of the career resilience model from Week 4 helps you to develop and thrive, and start to look at the ‘I can’ part – what you believe you can do.
As before, continue to use a notebook or the online toolkit to write down your thoughts and to complete the activities.
Lynne Johnson introduces Week 5 in the video below.
