The Compass to Navigating Your Career and Finding Purpose


Dr. Jane Horan, Author & Founder of the Horan Group



In today’s rapidly changing work environment, concerns about AI, robots and the future of work, and the varying needs of a multigenerational workforce, conversations continue to focus on finding meaning and working for an organization or leader that is purpose driven. Using a mix of insights from business, psychology, philosophy, and leadership research, the session explores how to better understand yourself and your purpose. This interactive presentation provides research based questions and practical tools to reveal the what, why and how of meaningful work, dispelling the myths and connecting the dots to finding a purpose driven career. In this 2 hour session, students learn how to uncover strengths, interests and what matters most by looking backward to plan forward.


Dr. Jane Horan is the founder of the Horan Group, a Singapore based strategic consultancy that shapes savvy cross-cultural work environments. She has lived in Asia for over two decades and previously worked for Kraft, Disney and GE in Organizational Leadership and Talent Development roles. Jane works with Fortune 500 companies, NGOs, and academic institutions in Asia, North America and Europe as an executive coach and facilitator in leadership, political savvy and bias awareness. Her book, “I Wish I’d Known That Earlier in My Career: the power of positive workplace politics” combines 20 years of work experience and research in political savvy and leadership.
