to Career.

While your studies have been a top priority, we recognize that grades and diplomas alone are not guarantees of employment, high wages, or management positions. It's crucial to learn how to effectively showcase your strengths, skills, and experiences to benefit your career and the companies you aspire to work for. The Workplace Preparation Program will assist you in understanding yourself better, leveraging your natural strengths, and defining the impact you crave in your professional life.

Exploring New Possibilities

Sometimes, despite having a predefined career path, you may find yourself unsure if it's truly what you want.

Making the decision to change can be challenging, especially when you have invested time and effort into a particular field.

Our program will help you navigate this transition by helping you recognize how your experiences, studies, and strengths can create new opportunities. We will guide you in exploring different possibilities and empower you to make informed decisions about your future.

Choosing the Right Program

We understand that each individual has different needs and preferences when it comes to career guidance. That's why we offer different options within the Workplace Preparation Program:

How do you know which position is right for you?

The position you are looking for is one that allows you to feel like you fit, can shine and have opportunities to advance.  Achieving this means that you know your strengths and what is important to you.  Understanding yourself, what you want and what impact are the building blocks for creating a career plan.

The Workplace Preparation Program was designed to help you know yourself, your strengths and your expectations so that you create your own pathway to success.

The Guidance You Are Looking For.

We built the Workplace Preparation Program in stages.  This was done so that you can decide how much assistance you want and/ or need.

1.    One Day Program: A quick introduction to the program, providing you with a snapshot of the key information and a concrete way forward.

2.    Ten-Day Intensive Program: A deep dive into the realities of strengths in the workplace and how to apply them effectively. This comprehensive program covers 20 modules and equips you with the knowledge required to find the right position and launch a successful career.

3.    10-Session Coaching: A personalized program that allows you to access expert guidance and recommendations. This coaching program complements the Ten-Day Intensive, providing additional support tailored to your specific needs.
