Managing Your Career for Short and Long Term

Training Summary
As an employee, doing work that is suited to your aptitudes and interests is a fundamental contributor to job satisfaction and effectiveness. Many employers have realized that when employees are in positions where the "fit" is right, high retention and good performance are the natural outcomes. Unfortunately, many employees have responsibilities that they are not suited to, or where external circumstances have guided their career choices rather than carefully considered decision-making. In this fast-changing knowledge economy it is equally important for both employers and employees that workers learn how to manage and develop their careers in a way which maximizes personal success and fulfillment while delivering performance to employers, clients or stakeholders. This course will give you the critical skills, insights and self-awareness to more effectively guide your career decision-making. Just prior to the course, you will complete an online DiSC personality assessment, a multi-purpose learning instrument to help you discover behavioral strengths and areas for augmentation.
There are no prerequisites required for this course.
