Going Deeper, Thinking Further Ahead

Many parents see the value in helping young people prepare for their futures, but are not sure where to find the help they need.

SparkPath programs delve deeper into your child’s aspirations, strengths and values and look further into the future to align those skills with tomorrow’s workplace. 

SparkPath programs offer specialized support to help young people discover their true potential and choose the education program that leads to an extraordinary career.  Our approach draws on many disciplines and resources: guided self-discovery and self-awareness (strengths, values, personality, aspirations); a scientific, psychometric approach; a thorough, needs-based analysis of the 21st century job market; and an exploration of the education path that will best support your child’s ultimate career goals.

SparkPath isn’t a cookie-cutter solution. Instead of passively reading guidebooks, or filling out generic assessment tests, your child helps set the agenda, participating in coaching sessions, guided exercises, brainstorming, psychometrics, journaling, and more. Each program is personalized to reflect the unique needs, interests, and preferences of the participant, so no two programs are ever the same.

Most importantly, SparkPath offers practical, actionable advice that maps a path to career success. Your child will walk away from the experience with a clear set of steps to transition smoothly from high school to postsecondary to career.

You can learn more about my approach in this video and hear about a client’s story.

There are two options to engage in a SparkPath program: the Career Incubator or an individualized career coaching program.   

SparkPath Career Incubator 

Date: September 30th, 2018 10am-5pm

Location: Ottawa, ON

Please note that this event is limited to 5 participants. 

The Career Incubator is a highly-interactive workshop that sparks student's career discovery process. Students learn to 1) create who they want to become; 2) discover the world of work and 3) explore education options that interest them. This event is an incredible way to boost confidence and options with a focused investment of time. 

Activities and results of the Career Incubator include: 

  1. Self-awareness exercises that identify unique interests and strengths.
  2. Psychometric assessment and interpretation on the results.
  3. Career research tools and tactics geared to a fast-evolving workplace.
  4. Education program research and a shortlist of preferred options.

 Before attending the Career Incubator, students complete self-awareness and psychometric exercises. Then, during the event, they explore their results and create their story.

Next, students find work problems they would like to work on. Finally, they explore education options  to prepare them to work on the problems they are interested in. 

Following the Incubator, each student has a 1on1 call with JP to build their action plan. 

The cost of participating in the Career Incubator is $500 plus tax.
