Hope-Action Theory: in Action
Hope is much more than a good feeling, it is connected to active strategies including implementation and adaptation. In this webinar, we will be focusing on this active component and the need for adaptation and pivoting when circumstances change. We live in an age of paradox that calls for increased flexibility and a shift towards positive uncertainty, planned happenstance, and chaos. Life and career do not move in straight lines and there is often a need for re-assessment, pulling back, and movement in new directions. In making these changes we respond to challenges but the outcomes still can be uncertain.

The hope-action pinwheel can spin through implementation and adaptation and on occasion draw us back to other components of the hope-action model. There can be a need for further self-reflection, perhaps renewed self clarification, altered visioning and a need to reset goals/planning strategies, and implement new actions.

In this session, we will be addressing both theory and practice and will be providing case examples and strategies for adaptation and dealing with change.
