Marion Haythorne from Capilano University delivers this amazing workshop! 

Do you sometimes feel as if there is a disconnect between the way you think career decision making for your child is supposed to occur and the way it typically unfolds?  Although well intentioned, do you sometimes feel you put pressure on your child to make career-related decisions that are sometimes counterproductive?

Parents as Career Coaches is a program that helps parents become more effective career development allies for their children. They are introduced to the concept of coaching, an appropriate role they can assume when guiding and supporting their children's career journeys. And finally, they are given practical tools and strategies to help them become better career coaches for their youth.

"Parents as Career Coaches" was developed by the Nova Scotia Department of Education, Skills and Learning Branch. It was such a success that Capilano University has brought the program to British Columbia.  The program was piloted at the University and is now being offered to the wider community.
