The Structuring Creativity Foundation is a non-profit organisation which offers Career Counselling and Life Coaching for college students and recent college graduates looking for clarity and direction for a rewarding life and a fulfilling career.
For most, education is a means to get a good job. But, just learning what is taught in colleges is not enough to succeed at a career or life. There is a need to learn additional skills, attitudes and behavior which aren’t taught in schools or colleges.
Data says that the number of students entering the job market is fairly enormous, but the bottom line is, most are not employable.
In countries like India, creativity is killed in favor of acquiring skills which would enable an individual to become employable. Being productive is valued more than being creative - the lines of code the employee writes or the number of test scripts he runs is valued more than any other insight he provides.
Creativity is not like a tap which can be opened at will to let the 'creative juices' out. Creativity requires the right attitude, mindset and intent. Creativity in different areas, like many other skills can be learnt, practiced and improved.
The desired outcome of the counselling and coaching sessions is to empower and motivate recent college graduates with knowledge and methods to think originally and creatively thereby prepare them for a fulfilling career and a rewarding life.
Enable youth to plan and live a better version of their lives by finding meaning in their life and fulfilment at work.
“The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be.” -Neale Donald Walsh
