Discover your Ikigai with Points of You® – Taster Session

What makes you leap out of bed in the morning? Or perhaps you hit snooze more times than you’d like to admit?

In this highly interactive workshop, you will explore the 4 main questions of Ikigai using the “unexpected but precise” images and metaphors in the Points of You®️ Faces tool.

“Ikigai” is the Japanese concept for living a life of purpose and the concept has gained prominence globally over the past 5 years. Purpose is one of the drivers of employee engagement and in this taster session, you’ll begin the journey of discovering your Ikigai.

You will gain insight in the connections between the following areas:

  1. What do you love?
  2. What are you good at?
  3. What can you be paid for?
  4. What does the world need?

It is a chance for some deep introspection and inner research. You’ll spend time thinking about your perfect morning and leave with a bite-sized action plan to start integrating elements of your Ikigai immediately. I look forward to what we will discover together!

This session is usually 3 hours and I’m trying a taster session 90 minute format to give people a chance to see what is involved.

VIPs can also sign up for a 60 minute online coaching session to start to find ways to integrate your ikigai through job crafting.

A little bit about me : Jennifer Shinkai, MA (Oxon), Points of You® Master Trainer

Back in 2015, I was miserable at work, had a slipped disc and was feeling incredibly stuck in my life.
I was definitely not leaping out of bed each day! I wish that I had known about the Ikigai concept as a way to structure my “navel gazing” as I tried to work out what I wanted to do with my life.

I’m now an English/Japanese facilitator and coach, supporting my clients to create engaged teams in global business. I’m passionate about the infinite possibilities for innovation that an inclusive workenvironment can create. As a Points of You® Master Trainer, I’m fortunate enough to have the tools to able to create that environment in my workshops.

Originally from England, I have been living in Tokyo, Japan since 1999, after graduating from St.Hugh’s College, Oxford University (English Language and Literature). When I’m not talking about Ikigai, I’m running, training for Spartan Races, and enjoying life in the Shitamachi (downtown) part of Tokyo with my husband and two kids.
