Career in transition?
We help you figure out what it is you really want to be doing, and help you make it happen. For whatever reason, you’ve decided you are going to leave your current organization, or maybe you’ve already left. Perhaps you’ve been out of the workforce for a while and want to transition back into formal employment. You are “in transition” and you are looking for support in navigating these challenging waters and land a great-fitting role that really inspires you.
Are you ready to take action today?
This workshop has been designed specifically for you by two Ottawa-based entrepreneurs of innovative career development services.
This workshop will help you understand the various sources of your career frustrations, what you need to do to succeed in today's marketplace, and how to take meaningful action towards landing your perfect job. We'll spend the day working through:
Setting the Stage: Exploding the many myths around work & careers
Building Block #1: The Inside Job -- building your strong foundation
Building Block #2: Personal Branding -- Your Compelling Value Story
Building Block #3: The Outside Job -- disciplined 21st century networking
The "Career in Transition?" workshop moves you a giant step forward towards your own personalized version of career success. At the end of this workshop you will leave with a clear road map of the specific activities you will be focusing on, including:
A work styles personality profile assessment designed for the business world, giving you an understanding of what drives you as well as the work environments and teams that are the best fit for you. With the unique characterization of your work personality you can more easily move forward, understanding your optimum role and the complementary team environment in which you will thrive;
A clear understanding of and ability to articulate what you want, also known as the ask. Many of us think we understand what we want but when pressed, fail to deliver a strong and powerful message. During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to further detail and justify what you seek;
The first step in developing a persuasive LinkedIn profile. Linkedin is a powerful business tool but so much depends on the words you choose and the story you tell. The workshop lays the groundwork for creating a standout Linkedin profile that tells your story in a powerful and convincing manner. Leveraging the earlier work from your personality profile and detailed understanding of what you seek, you create the foundation of your high impact LinkedIn profile;
More comfort in face-to-face networking – including talking about yourself as well as practicing active listening. Relationships are built on conversations. You will have ample opportunity to learn and practice networking techniques, drawing upon your earlier profiling work to create conversations and engagements. Note: many attendees find this one of the most valuable parts of the workshop - and we make sure to take the 'scare factor' out of the process and provide a friendly environment to connect and get valuable feedback;
Six weeks of follow up e-mails and exercises. The learning does not stop at the end of the day. We follow up with one new additional exercise e-mail each week for six weeks to allow you to expand upon the work from the workshop.
Event pricing includes snacks and refreshments, lunch, a comprehensive workbook, and follow-on emails to support your continuing focus on personal career development.
