Career discovery for employees

Individuals should be in charge of their career. Jobs are owned by organisations, while careers are owned by the individual. Where jobs and career fall together there is risk for unemployment in the long run. With that it becomes increasingly important that individuals have a clear career vision, know what they want, and develop the self-management skills to get that; individuals must take the lead in their careers and create a sustainable career that fits in with their goals.

The CareerDiscovery workshop is based on the latest scientific reference frameworks around contemporary career models. These models focus on self-management and subjective career success, thereby promoting that participants develop their own career identity and become self steering in their careers. The workshop wants to ask the “deeper system questions” and make participants aware of the tensions that exist within themselves and in the wider system. The workshop can be seen as an initiative that contributes to raising awareness and cultural change.

Content

We give your employees in this 3.5-hour workshop:

  • Insight into what this new working reality demands of them personally
  • Focus on their personal work motivators and energy providers
  • Knowledge of their own career management competences
  • Tools to proactively work work on their competences 

We measure their career attitudes through the CareerCoach® attitude report so that they gain validated insight in their current skills and leave with actionable and personalized tips and tricks.

Content

The workshop allows participants to investigate:

  • How the career landscape has changed in the last 50 years, how they relate to changing career models, and where they feel tension between themselves and the organisation
  • The role of the organization and the individual in the current VUCA work world
  • How they see their own career and what drives and motivates them
  • What their personal self-directed career attitudes are and what they can do themselves to further develop these skills. (Each participant will receive the CareerCoach® attitude report with their personal attitudes and a workbook with exercises that support the development of career attitudes)
  • Insight into what the organisation offers employees with regard to career development and sustainable employability

  • Participants have investigated and shared the various options for developing self-directed career skills
