[Part I] Your Career Health Check for 2022 – S02. E23.

About Lisa Stransky

As a Certified Career Development Professional, Lise Stransky believes work should be meaningful. She also believes being proactive and managing your career health is as important as going to the dentist! This is the philosophy that has guided her work for the past 17 years. 

Before she became self-employed and a ‘portfolio careerist’, Lise worked for the Canadian Automobile Association, University of Calgary Career Services, the Certified General Accountants (now CPA Alberta), Calgary Board of Education and the University of Guelph. A graduate of the Career Development Practitioner Post Graduate Certificate program from Conestoga College, Lise also holds a BA in English from the University of Guelph and certificates in Personality Dimensions facilitation and Mental Health First Aid.


In this episode, Lise Stransky and I discuss the value of career health and making choices that will best suit us and our goals in life. Lise Stransky works at Calgary Career Counseling and as a Certified Career Development Professional, she has keen insights into how to navigate change, both chosen and that which is foisted upon us, with resilience. 

Lise shares advice on how to not only build a network but maintain your existing network. We talk about how people often have blindspots when it comes to the intrinsic value in who you know and who you continue to meet. Lise details the key skills everyone should have heading into the future, whether employed or looking for new work opportunities, and how learning is something we should never stop doing. 

What is the health of your career heading into 2022? Now is a good time to assess where you are and where you want to be, and this episode will give you very thoughtful advice on how to go about that assessment.
