Fostering Career Self-Efficacy via Mindfulness and Life Coaching: A Positive Psychology Sustainable Career Framework
Source of Publication
Handbook of Research on Sustainable Career Ecosystems for University Students and Graduates
This chapter aims to develop a positive psychology sustainable career (PPSC) framework to foster career self-efficacy by providing an overview of how one’s career may play out across their lifespan. The psychology and vocational behavior literature have tended to develop in parallel via various theories, including conservation of resources, job demand-resources, and sustainable careers. Moreover, life coaching and mindfulness have emerged within positive psychology. Yet, efforts to integrate these different theories and approaches remain in a fragmented and embryonic state. Theoretical implications come from integrating psychology and vocational behavior literature in response to uncertain and competitive labor markets. Practical implications come from highlighting the need for early intervention and continued support across the lifespan. The PPSC framework can act as part of a broader toolkit to support individuals in preparing for and navigating chance events and career shocks by giving meaning to their careers and living their best life.
