Proactive career management is talent management through the “eyes of the individual”. Organisations can no longer promise “cradle to grave” style career development. But progressive organisations do recognise the importance of imaginative career management in the attraction, development and retention of talent. Well implemented, career management also plays a critical role in shaping and reinforcing the kind of organisational culture that supports long-term decision making.
We build on line career profiling systems to encourage individuals to take ownership of their own careers. The process provides a structure for individuals to: look back and reflect on their experience base and accomplishments; think now about current priorities; and look ahead to prepare for the challenges of the future. Used as a key element in high potential programmes, career profiling drives personal development planning. In trend analysis, it provides key organisational intelligence about the experience, capability and motivation of emerging leadership.
We deliver high impact workshops that address career realities. Long-term career planning is unrealistic, but formulating a career game plan and identifying the tactics that will accelerate development are critical. Our workshops deal with career life “as is” not as text book theory.
Our Career Tactics assessment provides a developmentally focused evaluation of the stratagems and tactics that have or haven’t helped individuals in their career progression. The results provide a detailed analysis of the opportunities and risks of twelve different tactics, with a personalised assessment of the pressure points of career life.
