Career Management System
The Career Management System (CMS) is like Google Maps for your Career… only better.
Why is it better?
Google Maps is a Global Positioning System (GPS) that shows you where you are on a map in real time. When you have a destination and know where you want to end up, it gives you the best and some alternative routes to get there…so you have options. It does this by reading signals from satellites and uses software on your device (Smart Phone) to interpret those signals from a location to a destination. But the one thing Google Maps can’t do is tell where that destination is. It has no idea of where you want to go. You have to tell it. Once told, it takes over from there
The Career Management Systems not only gives to alternative routes to get to a location, but here is what makes it better. It helps ‘you’ figure out where your destination… your end point could be. In other words, it helps you determine what you next career or job may be. There could be one, or two, perhaps even three. Yes, you ‘may’ have options. Once you prioritize your career options, the CMS can help you figure out a path to get there. Like a GPS, It too uses signals, seven in fact which are listed below. Once you receive the signal, you use both your mind and instinct to determine what the preferred career would be. Using those same signals, you then head out on your career shift journey but following the predetermined route.
In a Nutshell, the following is covered:
- Behaviours that point to your Core Need
- Internal Functions that are always at play behind the scenes, the core that points to your behaviours
- Interests that really determine your career satisfaction
- Anchors that hold your World of Work in Place
- Skills that you know and what to use, the ones you want to learn and the ones you know but don’t enjoy
- Values, deep inner convictions that factor into the private aspect of your career, and
- Career Assets, those things that make you different from others and put you in demand
In terms of actually doing the above, each of the seven components isn’t hard. What can be a challenge is the introspection; the looking deep inside which is required to be true enough to oneself. This allows you to embrace those great aspects of your character that can be very rewarding. This also means you have to accept the weaker traits of your character that are a challenge. All of us…every single person, has both great and weak attributes.
Note that in today’s World of Work, people will probably have between 5 and 7 careers during their active years of employment. Some of those changes will be a clue that for you, change could be blowing in the wind. Some of those changes will be a direct result of someone making that decision for you, such as companies closing up shop, downsizing, etc.. Sometimes a change will be totally self driven.
A huge benefit of this training, is giving you what you need to be proactive approaches in terms of your career’s future. Do you have what it takes to always be ready for the next career shift/transition. Having a Career Management System gives you an edge and substantially reduces the amount of stress related to a change in career.
