Hello, I’m Carmel O’ Reilly. I’m a WorkLife Practitioner, Writer and Founder of WorkLife Incorporated. My inspiration to found WorkLife Incorporated came from a lifelong passion for learning. My work has taught me that the one thing in life that can never be taken away from you is your learning.
As a WorkLife practitioner and writer, I create learning programmes and resources to help people manage, develop and transition their WorkLives in good, challenging and bad times. The focus of my work begins by helping people identify a WorkLife path that’s true to their core values, purpose and motivation. Then to follow this through by creating meaningful short and long term WorkLife plans, while enabling Self-Coaching, Self-Directing and Self-Leadership to drive these plans.
By WorkLife I mean our life at work, where we spend one third of our lives. I also mean the impact our work has on our life outside of work, and the impact our life outside of work has on our work. All areas of our life in and out of work are so intrinsically linked, they cannot be separated, nor should they. I believe WorkLife needs to be considered holistically. This is a more definite description of what WorkLife means to me.
I love being a WorkLife Practitioner. I love that my profession allows me to immerse myself in the world of people’s learning, and that I get to participate in their WorkLife journeys.
I love that our WorkLives are journeys.
I love my own WorkLife journey. It’s taken me from Investment Banker to WorkLife Practitioner by way of stopping off at university along the way to gain my degree in Coaching Coaching and Management. I now help people navigate their WorkLife journeys, through good times and times of change and uncertainty.
I love that I can do this from a place of having changed direction myself – a place of understanding that comes from challenges, obstacles and successes I’ve encountered along the way. Together with experiences, knowledge and skills gained throughout my journey. All of which come from a place of exploration and discovery. I continue to learn through the amazing people I work with, from whom I draw inspiration everyday.
My Mission is: To help people pursue their WorkLives with greater clarity, passion, purpose and pride, by creating continuous WorkLife learning programmes and resources that are accessible to everyone.
