My co-host, Bobbie LaPorte, and I are delighted to announce that our speaker will be Joan Jackson, life coach and founder of JPJ Coaching LLC.  Joan will present “The Four Stages of Happiness: Helping Clients Discover More Purpose in Their Life and Careers.”

I’ve worked with many clients who have had financially successful careers but have been burned out and were floundering trying to create a life and career that provided purpose and meaning. Others have been on the right track but have been derailed by layoffs, health issues, divorce, and other setbacks.  A few months ago Joan Jackson and I were presenting at the same Coach Month event and I was inspired by her presentation on the Four Stages of Happiness which provided a valuable perspective on how we, and our clients, can find more meaning and purpose particularly in the face of negative or unplanned changes. As coaches we are well-equipped to help our clients achieve their goals.  This presentation and dialogue goes beyond the “how to” aspects of goal achievement to address the question “What is the purpose of my life?”  

Joan will present a spiritual perspective on:

  • How can I help my clients go through the natural or unexpected changes of life?
  • How do the Four Stages of Happiness related to client maturity and satisfaction?
  • How can we help our clients discover their life purpose?
