The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Jan 18, 2022

We were brought up at a different time. The world has changed - and as a result, many parents struggle to help guide their child through the myriad of decisions they are expected to make in order to find their way onto the “correct career path.”


These decisions are expected to be made earlier and earlier - which causes so much heartache. 

What if I told you that there are no wrong decisions?!


In this episode Oie and I discuss her 4 stage model where she addresses :

a ) Values
b ) Natural Talents
c ) Interests
d ) Work Preferences


Her model will facilitate this journey and ease the burden from such young shoulders whilst having to make these big choices.


Want to know more? Then grab a cuppa - and keep listening!


More about Oie Dobier :

Oie based her education and career on all the wrong things. She chose a path that others expected of her which led to changing her major, jumping from job to job, and finding herself always looking for the next big challenge. Then in her early 40’s, she was passed over for a promotion which caused her to do some self-reflection. Although the pay was good, she realized she was tired, bored and unfulfilled. She had chosen a career that didn't align with her values, passions or natural talents and felt it was time to be more purposeful with her life. What if there was a way to teach young people how to figure this out earlier? A way to help them start their career in something fulfilling, interesting and enjoyable? What if she could save them from the years of struggle and unfulfillment that she and so many others have experienced? As a result, Project Who Am I was born and she’s been helping young people learn about themselves and apply this knowledge to their educational and career pursuits.

How to contact Oie :

Understanding one’s own natural talents and using them to explore possible professions is an excellent first step in finding a fulfilling, successful career.
