Career Optimiser Coaching Programs
Managing Your Career
Your career is really about what you have to offer as a professional now will be able to offer in the future. Any opportunity to reflect on your experience allows you to explore this proposition.
Writing a resume to access a new opportunity, writing an end of year performance self-review or self-appraisal or setting performance goals for the new year or cycle, all of these activities present perfect opportunities to reflect on what you have to offer, realise how capable you are and communicate that capability to anyone seeking people with such capabilities. If approached in the right way, these activities can help you discover, develop and leverage your core value proposition for success in current and future roles.
Sadly, the practice of performing these activities tends to focus less on the true substance of the experiences and more on whatever image and appearance need to be communicated to get whatever outcomes are desired.
In reality, your capabilities start with your humanity, what you can achieve given any set of circumstances. This capability is not developed merely from your school and academic qualifications or just from the fact that you have work experience. These capabilities are developed from the intentionality with which you approach and embrace the entirety of your life experiences, of which school and work are simply aspects.
This core program focuses on establishing the capability framework on which performance readiness for current and future roles will be based.
The program has three parts. Each part requires you to demonstrate understanding of the principles by applying them to assignments that are submitted. These assignments serve as a context for the 1-on-1 coaching sessions included in the program.
Part I: Professional Activities - understanding roles as a set of common activities that can be mastered and what developing mastery means
Part II: Domains of Expertise - understanding different types of domain expertise as the key requirement for solving problems and demonstrating value in any role
Part III: Competencies - understanding what competencies mean in relation to the ability to respond to the demands and expectations of any role, deliver results and solve problems, master activities and develop required domain expertise
