Career and professional development for employees and teams:

As an employer, you will know, workforce development is critical now to retain and develop your employees, however, change invariably impacts on roles and team experience.

Your employees are likely to be reasonably satisfied with their chosen career path however may struggle to manage workplace conditions, team or interpersonal dynamics, and the productivity pressures that impact their effectiveness and wellbeing. Role ‘fit’ and values alignment are key.

Career and professional development coaching encourages greater levels of self-understanding and as a result, people become clearer about their potential ‘best’ and how to work towards improved career congruence and reputation. With a neutral and effective career coach, strategies are developed and objectives set.

Individual career coaching or professional development coaching offers your employee the opportunity to expand their career horizon and deepen their connection to themselves and their work. Often people simply want ‘a plan’. Supportive ‘sponsorship’ from the coach enables growth and improved self-efficacy.

Employee development coaching offers:

  1. A neutral guide and support that validates and affirms
  2. An opportunity to review career or role alignment in confidence
  3. Improved connection to what matters in the individual’s life and work
  4. A holistic approach to working through the day to day issues and support to lessen the burden
  5. Regular sessions provide a valuable on-going evolution of perspective
  6. A career development Plan offering a record of the process, assessment results, and career development objectives.

MBTI for Teams:

When individuals in a team have a shared language around personality differences, strengths and weaknesses they are more likely to draw on each other’s complimentary skills and ways of working. The Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) is an ideal tool to assist teams to build improved understanding of themselves individually, and how best to interact, communicate and appreciate differences with other team members and customers. Half day and full day training offer robust interactive experiences to maximise learning outcomes. Assessments are completed online and feedback given prior to the training or are given manually as part of the training. Our training is designed to suit the needs of the team and their organisation.

Career Planning for Teams in Change:

There is no longer a clear game-plan for the future of careers. Technology is changing so rapidly that it is difficult for people to navigate an uncertain work landscape. This training offers employees an opportunity to evaluate their careers, identify what motivates them and provides tools for developing personal competencies which in turn ensure career sustainability and psychological flexibility.

This training can be a quick 1.5hr overview or a longer and deeper process to really help employees develop the resilience and career clarity required. Training is based on current career development theories which place the emphasis on personal responsibility and personal development with the aim to improving work engagement and performance.

Career Planning for Older Workers:

These days, since there is no mandatory retirement age we are working longer, and managing our late career transitions are more complex. This means that older workers need to plan and build greater collaboration with their managers so that they continue to learn new skills, continue to make a contribution and create lifestyles that support well-being. Two workshops are offered;

A half day training that emphasises taking personal responsibility for managing a late-career transition and provides simple tools to evaluate and plan towards greater lifestyle balance.

A full day training that offers a comprehensive process from which participants can evaluate the status of their career and assess what motivates them now. They will create some clear objectives for their late-career transition towards improved contribution and a satisfying lifestyle.

Career Conversations for Managers:

Career conversations for managers who are busy, is challenging and difficult to get right. Using the Career Intelligence model for Career Conversations developed around the CareerEQ Career Intelligence Assessment, managers can bring a holistic approach to their career conversations with employees. This training is a 3-hour activity.

Feedback

Thank you, I loved your session and would have loved to have you here for longer (Sarah)

A very interesting presentation. Great to see the different personalities in the group – the group task was more interesting than I thought.

Great to do group activities. Would have liked to have talked more about specific situations at work that we might come up against and how different Types can contribute to that. It will definitely allow us to continue working on our team.

Sarah, College of Chiropractic Medicine

Great, I initially was only going to attend one session but my consultant identified many aspects of my transition from my role that I had not thought about. I also did not realise that my current frame of mind was still in denial rather than accepting and being excited with the prospects beyond here.

John (Regional Manager)

The follow up sessions [with each Manager] went really well, I certainly noticed a different mindset in all of them and they seemed genuinely energized about the possibilities in front of them.

This is great and exactly what we were hoping for as timing-wise it fits in perfectly with our plans for the second half of the year where we get them to learn about the different roles in head office.

They thought the Career Intelligence assessment was particularly good and the results in the report really resonated with them and gave them clarity, so it looks like the digital version you have created is on the money!

A note to say thank you for the workshop on Saturday as part of Arts Regional Trust | Te Taumata Toi-a-iwi; ART Venture programme. It was fabulous to work with you again. I particularly enjoyed and appreciated how you interlaced the MBTI information with personal anecdotes in an open and empathetic way to our situation and the group.
