Word of the Day – Pages of a Career Journal


I came across this calendar page and was amused that I once upon a time had a 365 day word of the day vocabulary calendar. Clearly I was trying to build my vocabulary for those multitudes of academic papers I had to write. I am glad I saved this page, as it is a great word. I also find the questions thought provoking.

Evocateur- one who evokes out of people and their circumstances the skills, gifts and potential they did not know they had. The word evocateur comes from the Latin ex, which means outside of and voices, to call. An e(x) 0vocateur is someone, then who calls to the outside, who calls forth that which is within.

  • Who has been an evocateur in your life?
  • What dimensions of you did they call forth?
  • How did they do it? What methods did they use and what teachable moments did they create or seize?
  • How are you being asked to be an evocatur in your life now?
  • How have you been one in the past and what are your hopes for your future of calling forth potential
