To help you clarify your career direction or to prepare you for your next career move by creating more self-awareness regarding your values, skills and experience, and about what it means to put them at best use in the reality of the market today.
Birkman is a valuable self-assessment tool to capitalize on your preferences that lead to job satisfaction.From the Birkman perspective, everyone is equipped with a unique set of strengths, acknowledging that there is a variable degree of success in applying these strengths in different environments.
Know or acknowledge your strengths, and compare them with general occupational data to understand what career attracts you most and how you would perform in specific professional roles.
Through Birkman, you will be able to confirm or review your career choices and decisions by being more aware of your strengths and inner motivations, and by understanding what work environments would most probably foster your abilities and interests, leading to higher job satisfaction.
We will access and enlist your personal and professional values, and look together at your personal work style, leadership style and possible challenges at work.
We will paint an image of your authentic vocation from the inside out, and will complete our work with identifying your unique selling points and with rehearsing them in role-play interviews.
Birkman International offers an array of supporting materials as, for example, the Birkman Signature Report, career exploration, coaching and leadership style reports.
We would have a brief conversation to clarify your objectives and expectations from the career-coaching program. What would you like to see different? How would you know the program was successful for you?
