What's Your Personal Definition of Success?

An essential part of personal branding is knowing what it is that you want to put out there, beyond a title with skills and experience.  Employers and clients want to know why you are who you are.

· What motivates and drives you to be good at what you do?

· What makes you productive? 

· What do you value in your work? 

Do you really know?  Most people don’t.  That’s why over half of the working population is dissatisfied with their job.


We will discuss:

§  The definition of success

§  The difference between incentives and motivators

§  The emotional trauma of career transition

§  How to define and find work that is meaningful

§  How to sell your motivators


About The Speaker

Tommy Chiodo spent the first half of his career chasing success.  Although successful by all cultural standards used to define success, Tommy found that living “the dream” didn’t lead to happiness, but to clinical depression.  That dark experience was the catalyst to a soul-searching re-evaluation of his role in life and the resulting transition into a full time practice of helping others through their own personal vocational discernment.  Via his private practice, Tommy has been on a 17 year crusade to help people get beyond thinking of themselves merely in terms of what they do, but instead understanding and appreciating the value of who they really are in defining their career.  Understanding and appreciation of your true self is the gateway to career satisfaction.


Tommy received his training as a vocational counselor from the University of Texas and soon began working in the outplacement industry with then industry leader Drake Beam Morin.  He was the Senior Consultant for DBM for two years before he launched his private practice. Over the last 17 years, Tommy has helped over a thousand people discover their personal definition of meaningful work and then coached them in how to sell that valuable insight in the job market.

Connecting who you are with what you do.”
