In our executive coaching practice, we encounter many smart, hard-working professionals, and often they feel stuck in a rut with their career. We've employed research-based and time-proven career planning, development, and coaching techniques to help them re-energize their careers. We've captured the essence of that experience in this course, Jumpstarting Your Career. In less than 45 minutes, we'll share with you the process, guidance, tools, and best practices that we've used successfully to help current and emerging leaders connect with their career aspirations, engage their networks, leverage their strengths, grow their capabilities, and develop a game plan for success.
In addition to the course itself, enrolled students will be able to download the following interactive PDF resource guides:
- Career Development Playbook: Your handy guide and workbook through the process.
- Leadership Competency Guide: Helps you understand what knowledge, skills, and abilities are needed to reach your goals.
- Leadership Traits Guide: Helps you understand what leadership traits are sought-after by decision-makers, and what potential derailers you need to look for in your blind spots.
- Stakeholder Management Guide: Helps you appreciate what your various stakeholders need/want from you in your day-to-day behaviors and interactions.
Using these resource guides and the guidance provided in the course, you can work to reflect on your aspirations, engage your network, assess your capabilities, develop a plan for success, and then execute that plan. There will be a Q&A page available to students, where you can post questions or challenges you're running into, and we'll respond within 24 hours to make sure that you are able to keep the momentum going.
