Changing Lives, Building Careers: Motivational Intterviewing in Workforce Development-Webinar

​Presented in partnership with the Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences(opens in a new tab) and the Rideau-Ottawa Valley Learning Network(opens in a new tab), this webinar aims to teach the basics of motivational interviewing and equip you with practical guides and resources that will help elicit and guide lasting change. This webinar will teach how to use motivational interviewing to foster self-efficacy and seed self-driven positive change in people you work with in the workforce development sector across Canada.

Why motivational interviewing?

​Motivational interviewing is a way of having conversations with people that helps them to feel more motivated and confident about making positive changes in their lives. Career professionals can use MI to help clients strengthen their motivation and commitment to behavioral change. The idea behind MI is to help people find their own reasons for wanting to change, rather than trying to convince them to change based on someone else’s reasons.

​MI can play a vital role in workforce development by helping individuals to identify their goals and build the confidence and motivation they need to achieve them. By using this approach, workforce development professionals can build stronger relationships with their clients, increase their effectiveness in supporting individuals’ career development, and enhance their own job satisfaction and professional growth. MI may benefit a wide range of individuals, including job seekers, workers facing career transitions, individuals with barriers to employment, employers, and workforce development professionals themselves.

​ After attending the webinar, you will walk away with:

  • ​Better awareness on MI and its importance in delivering a client-centered service within the workforce development sector
  • ​New ideas and strategies on encouraging individuals to initiate and maintain positive changes in their lives through their own intrinsic motivation
  • ​Resources to support you implementing MI in your practice

Career Development Professional Centre

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone
