Is the magic gone from your career? Free teleclasses that can help
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Seattle career coach Curt Rosengren is offering three free, one-hour teleclasses (conducted over the phone) designed to help you:
- Rekindle your passion for the way you make a living,
- Replenish your lagging energy reserves, and
- Fall back in love with Monday mornings.

The first class of this series -- How to Get Wild About Work -- will be held today, January 31, at noon.
Having sat in Rosengren's classes before and interviewed him for NWjobs, I can tell you that he's incredibly motivating. If you're not sure how on earth you might ever derive enjoyment from your job again or what sort of work you could be doing that you wouldn't find so onerous, Rosengren can help you get to the bottom of it. Same goes for those who aren't even sure which aspects of their job have them so danged miserable and lethargic in the first place.
All this might sound like quasi-new-agey stuff, but Rosengren's coaching and teaching style are anything but. As he explains it, "It's not magical thinking, and it's not a happy-sappy, pie-in-the-sky approach. The ideas I will share are nuts-and-bolts concepts you can start applying right away."
Since these classes cost you nothing and can be taken during your lunch hour, you don't have anything to lose. Here are the particulars of each:
How to Get Wild About Work
Monday, January 31, 12-1 p.m. Pacific time
How to Energize Your Life
Monday, February 7, 12-1 p.m. Pacific time
How to Fall in Love with Monday Morning
Monday, February 14, 12-1 p.m. Pacific time
All three classes are free of charge, save for the tolls your phone carrier hits you with. (You'll be calling a Seattle number to "attend" the class.) To register for any of them, email Rosengren or click the above class links.
