Had enough?

Feel like you’ve had enough of your work and want to do something else? Take action and come and join us for a one day workshop to find new pathways for you to start enjoying what you do.

Being happy at work is important. We spend so much of our waking life at work and yet most people spend little time in planning and thinking about their career. When we are matched to careers that suit us we tend to be happier. Using our abilities and skills to their full potential means that we can often earn more, whilst not using them means we are wasting our strengths and talents.

In order to understand the career path that is suitable for us, we first need to understand ourselves and what we are looking for in our work life. We then need to discover how we are going to get there and what steps we need to take to achieve this.

In this one day, interactive workshop, we will look at: who we are, what we want and how we are going to get there. We explore the areas that influence career happiness and job satisfaction. This includes abilities, skills, interests, personal style, values and goals.

How Does It Work?

Initial Discussion – this can be face to face or by telephone
Please contact us if you would like to discuss the workshop and whether it is for you.

Pre workshop work
You will be asked to complete a couple of exercises including the Highlands Ability Battery – this takes three hours on line and is an in depth analysis of your strengths.

The Workshop

We will look at “Who am I and What do I Want?”

1/ Natural Abilities. Everyone is born with a range of abilities unique to him or her. These are essentially hardwired from the age of fourteen and can be measured. A person is happiest and performs best when natural abilities are employed to the fullest. You will learn your strengths and abilities and how this relates to different jobs.
2/ Interests. Over the years, a person develops unique interests. When these are identified and recognised, the individual can be helped to combine these with her abilities to achieve a fuller and more integrated use of both. Using an exercise, we will explore your interests and the type of careers that are suitable for your interests.
3/ Skills. These are those function-driven tasks an individual has learned to do well. They develop over time through study, education, application and practice. We explore the skills you wish to use in your future career.
4/ Values. An individual’s values define reaction to people and events. When a sense of values is combined with knowledge of the other factors in the whole person wheel, the individual is helped to bring plans and choices into sharper focus. You will learn your work values are why they are important to your future career.

We will then go onto look at “How do I get there?”

Integration, Goals and Action Plans. We now integrate the information that we have generated and we examine the themes and ideas that have appeared. Once we decide which careers are best suited to you, we build action plans around what the next stage is. This may include researching jobs or courses. You will leave the workshop with some clear action points as to how to take your career to the next stage.
