HOW TO JOB SEARCH WITH CONFIDENCE | E.74 Career Therapy Podcast w/ Cathy Wasserman, Lauren Weinstein

On this week's Career Therapy Podcast (e.74), we welcome both Cathy Wasserman and Lauren Weinstein to the podcast.

Cathy and Lauren are the co-authors of ‘The Empowered Job Search’ book. They draw on more than 30 years as career and leadership coaches with significant influences from positive psychology, Buddhist principles, and Nonviolent Communication, to help you know yourself in today’s modern working world.

In today’s episode, we talk about the differences between performative and personal identity, the importance of narrative in building career confidence, and how to tap into cleaner forms of motivation in your search, beyond fear, anxiety, and failure.
