Program Description

Each one of your participants has their own story. Before enrolling in your program, they may have only imagined their life experiences as barriers to success. Although these experiences may be the basis for resistance, the same experiences also have the potential to propel them into job placement and self-sufficiency. This training will address strategies to help you transform resistance into economic self-sufficiency for your job seekers.

In this workshop you will:

  • Identify the unique potential and opportunities in job seekers’ past and present experiences;
  • Develop specific strategies to manage resistance and shift a job seeker’s mindset to one that is focused on strengths and opportunities;
  • Practice strategies to effectively engage job seekers in work readiness;
  • Share best practices and new ideas from field practitioners; and
  • Access useful resources to help reinforce a strengths-based approach and shift from resistance to active and positive engagement.

Intended Audience

Career Coaches, Case Managers, Facilitators, Job Developers, Program Directors, Retention Specialists, Work Readiness Instructors
