It is well known that in today’s world, careers are not linear nor predictable. We should expect and be prepared for change in today’s world of work. However, what we are doing to prepare for this change and protect against the stress and upheaval that it brings? How do we cope when things don’t go to plan?

A relatively new concept, Career Adaptability, is something that can be learnt and practiced. It can help you make changes in your career, cope with unexpected changes and thrive in the face of new demands. Research attests to its link with wellbeing, job satisfaction and performance.

Our Thriving from the Start (TftS) Network event ‘Career Adaptability – Thriving in the Face of Uncertainty,’ was hosted by a member of CMHAA’s Early in Career Committee and provided a solid understanding of career adaptability and its importance, especially for those early in their career, as well as unpack strategies to strengthen career adaptability. Leveraging psychological expertise and lived experience the livestreamed discussion featured two outstanding speakers:

Eleanor De Ath – Miller, Consultant Psychologist, Transitioning Well
Kelly Lemke, Senior Manager Claims Innovation, Allianz Australia
