In these tough economic times there are two women who are making a difference by helping people through the challenge of a career change. On Tuesdays, Paska Nayden and Lena Gjonaj conduct a free group-coaching workshop for transitioning professionals at the Easton Public Library. The weekly workshops cover topics relevant to job seekers and those in transition, networking and accountability coaching.
Recently they hosted Ruth Gerath, the author of From Hired to Happy: The Secrets of a Vibrant Career and a Fulfilling Life. Nayden said the presentation was "lively and interactive and, most importantly, gave the group members new techniques they could use immediately to increase their professional skills and personal resilience."
Gerath has experience working with a variety of businesses, from Fortune 10 corporations to small entrepreneurial companies. "It was an inspiring and engaging learning experience," Nayden said. Gerath's enthusiasm was infectious, she added, as she pulled from her research in personal well-being and the lessons she gleaned from the many interviews she conducted for her book.
Nayden noted that the book is a unique blend of business savvy and human warmth. "Ruth believes that we are not two people -- one at work and one outside of it. She is passionate about helping people develop the skills and characteristics that will enable them to thrive in challenging situations and beyond," she said.
