Career Counseling ISIS’s Caliph

As someone who has spent his life helping people change, I can’t quite accept that it’s impossible to change someone, even ISIS’s self-proclaimed caliph: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

At the risk of unmatched naïveté, my article today consists of a thought experiment: What might a successful few-minute first career counseling session with ISIS’s caliph look like. 

Of course, I’m not hubristic enough to think this would work but perhaps the thought experiment embeds useful principles for all of us, as I argue at the end of the article.

Career Dialogues Between High School Students and Me

I was asked to come to a high school class to do what I do on the radio: Workovers: a few-minute exchange to help a person decide what career s/he might want to explore.

While simple and terse, I believe the exchanges embed career lessons useful whether you’re a teen, much older, or you want to provide career guidance for someone you care about.  The transcript of those Workovers is my article today. HERE is the link.
