How many of us have a career management plan?  What is one? 
Having a career management plan helps you manage the direction you want your career to take; the job skills, knowledge and experiences you will need, and how to get them. Don't leave your career path to chance…get prepared now!  I have developed a detailed 9-stage plan to help you have a competitive advantage and feel more confident.  Leaving it to the last moment results in unnecessary anxiety, unpreparedness and not putting your best self forward; often resulting in you not getting your dream job or desired position.
This is a practical, hands-on workshop giving you a structured approach to your desired career pathway.  Completion of this Career Management Planning workshop will follow a 9 stage plan.  Each stage will address specific career related questions:
  1. What skills do you already possess? (Where are you now?)
  2. What is holding you back? (How do you address self-limiting beliefs or obstacles?)
  3. What do you want for your career?  (Where do you want to go?)
  4. How might you get there? (What steps do you need to take to get there?)
  5. Who can help? (What resources might I use?  How do I effectively network?)
  6. What are some “do’s and don’ts’’ of resume writing? (Using your existing résumé how can you improve it?)
  7. How do I give a compelling interview? (What are some “do’s and don’ts’’?)
  8. How do I request, receive and action feedback? (How do I develop stronger resiliency skills?)
  9. What next?  What else will you do? (Putting it altogether: Creating my personalised career management plan).
Using Everything DiSC ® Workplace assessment plus other self-assessments, we will examine the skills and experiences you currently possess. Information unpacked from stages 1-5 provides the foundation for the workshop where we will work on creating a career management plan based on your needs, skills, knowledge and desires. During your breaks, you will also get a chance to put into practice some networking advice. From here, we will then discover cutting edge tips on resume writing, how to deliver a compelling interview, and how to request feedback and then action it in our plans. You will walk away with a Career Management Plan for your own unique leadership fingerprint.
All personalised assessments and workbook are a part of the cost of the workshop.

Ignite your career path now!
