Description

The Happenstance Learning Theory (HLT) (1999, 2004) has become one of the most popular career theories. However, while many career practitioners find this theory very interesting, they are of a love-or-hate attitude. They agree to its notion that the career we achieve today was not planned when we were young, but yet, when we learn more about its notions, we are puzzled and confused.


In his book “Luck is No Accident”, John Krumboltz says,

“We should always keep our options open but never make a career decision.”

“No one can predict the future as everyone’s career is a result of many unplanned events.”

“Undecidedness and indecision is absolutely okay.”


One may simply question the theory that if people don’t make career decision and planning but leave their career future to luck and chance, why do they still need to see a career counsellor or coach? If what the notions are true, we, career practitioners, will be like those with difficulties in career transitions… because we will be out of jobs too!


This training session aims to unlock the puzzles and to explain what actually Krumboltz’s Theory of Learning Happenstance is about and how it helps clients with difficulties in career transitions.
