What would you like to do?

In your past experiences of career advisory services you may have been asked the question, "What would you like to do?" at some point. I don't think I am alone in being asked this question previously or in wishing that some of my answers had been a little more careful. The reason for bringing it up is that answering the "What would you like to do?" question can be relatively easy but ensuring that the answer is a useful one requires a little more thought.

For that reason, a key component in measuring the success of the work/life fusion approach to career direction finding is changing an individual's perspective from "Where is my career going?" to "Where my career is going". Arguably, only confidence in the latter can change fortunes going forward.

It would be good to hear examples of questions you have been asked or those that you use yourself in similar situations. As always, the conversation is an open one!
