Career Consciousness

Over 20 Years Experience in Human Resource Development

After many years as an HR manager and career and workforce development consultant, Dr. Helen Richardson established Career Consciousness. It was a conscious idea to help individuals and organizations see work differently. She recognized the need for a new level of self awareness for both survival and thriving in this new world of work that never stops. Thus, Career Consciousness is both a philosophy and a consulting firm.

Dr. Richardson has served a wide range of populations, from youth in search of their first job, to welfare-to-work populations, emerging leaders, seasoned executives, and senior citizens seeking new opportunities for work. She helps them take charge of their work experiences and transform them into personal and professional successes.

Dr. Richardson’s inspiration for her company came from an observation she made as a child: happiness in the home has a lot to do with how happy parents are with their work. Over the course of her formal education and professional career, she developed a cutting-edge coaching and training model called A New Way to Think About Work. This model supports the personal transformations of how participants see themselves and their work, and serves as the basis for the individual and group coaching and workshops the company offers.

“Career Consciousness is the employer’s awareness of the interdependence of human motivation and organizational goals,” Dr. Richardson explains. “When employees and managers become fully engaged and empowered in the work, they become more productive and invested in their employer’s success.”
