Career Change Management
This webinar is a systematic run-through of a career change process and gives insight into and discusses all the key factors, the dos and don’ts and themes related to a career change and how they impact. It provides a new perspective, ideas, different viewpoints, out of the box thinking.
The webinar is based on discussions with over 10 000 business executives where we talked about their career change motives, goals and experiences, about what is good practice, actions supporting reaching a desired career change, and bad practice, actions potentially leading to an undesired career step.
The goal is to improve your ability to define what a career path for a person with “your” background might look like. To give methods by which you can identify and search for jobs that correspond to your desires, personality, values, and professional experience. Also advising how to advance on the practical level in the career change process and avoid taking wrong actions.
When in a career change
Most people know what recruiting is about. Yet, in a career change situation, most also have question marks. The issues arising and discussed are much alike regardless of professional expertise or background. But the starting point and the reasons behind a wish to land a new job are always individual. So are the answers.
Therefore, even if one knows all the right questions, few rarely feel they have all the answers. This webinar offers an excellent opportunity to confidentially spar one’s question marks and career thoughts. Many already have ideas of what they might like to do but would like to get a second opinion. In my experience, most people feel sparing helps clarify their career thoughts and increase their odds for a successful career move.
