The Components

The program will set a solid base on which to build a successful career in the workplace



Setting the foundation for success means to set the right expectations, integrate strengths-based development approaches, develop core competencies and shift the mindset to a new workplace.



The more individual knows themselves, the more they are able to be a top performer and an active contributor to the team, and the organization.



Understanding what you are searching for as a new position, what are the elements of the workplace that will allow you not only to complete the work but to excel as well as how to find and confirm you have identified and are applying for the right opportunities.



Establishing your pathway/plan is key to ensuring that the development, the effort, the energy and the decisions you are making are supporting the success you envision in the end. Although there are unknowns, having a way forward helps make the journey concrete.



Not only will the program include all of this great content and the supporting workbooks, it will also offer additional assessments and supporting books.
