It’s Your Career – eLearning

career-coaching-14368889

Employees are drifting, not driven. Without a clear employee career development plan, they don’t know what their organizations want them to do next. They themselves aren’t really sure what they want. They need help in clarifying their engagement drivers and career aspirations so they can successfully redefine and navigate today’s uncharted career landscape. Our message: It’s Your Career – and we will help you take ownership.

The foundation for employees’ future career success is an understanding of their engagement drivers and the capabilities they have to move the organization’s strategy forward. It continues with an employee career development plan to explore and take action on both the obvious – and not so obvious – opportunities for development or challenging work. In today’s world of work, sometimes the best career move is a subtle change in the current job. This online career development eLearning module is a valuable alternative for career development guidance for an employee population organizations cannot reach via live delivery.

It’s Your Career — online career development eLearning module enables participants to:

  • Take ownership of their careers by honing their personal definition of “career success” and working through the three components of successful career management (Know Yourself, Explore Your Growth Options, Take Action)
  • Understand the dynamics of engagement and its role in each individual’s career success
  • Identify action items to help them achieve more “great days at work” for greater job satisfaction
  • Self-assess their personal values, career drivers, strengths/weaknesses (Full Spectrum Leadership Competencies), and preferred job conditions
  • Enlist support from their manager and others to create an employee career development plan and to learn about growth paths and opportunities within the organization that align with their preliminary growth goals, capabilities and drivers
  • Navigate their network and conduct informational interviews to identify action items needed to get where they want to go
  • Continue to actively manage their career long after the module concludes
