Beginner’s Mind for Wellness Pros
We are living in a VUCA world: volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Wellness pros sometimes think that doesn’t apply to what they do, but it does. Navigating a VUCA industry requires shoshin – beginner’s mind and adikara – studentship. In this episode, Cate and Grace discuss how an open mind and an online community course can help you design a wellness career that aligns with your vision and values.
What you’ll get out of tuning in:

- How an open mind and an online community course can help you design a wellness career that aligns with your vision and values.
- Why having a conversation with someone else can help you identify what’s working and what’s not working in your wellness career.
