When did you last take some quality time to think about you and your future?

Need space and time out to:

  • reflect on your career – is it going in the right direction?

  • re-focus on what is important to you in work and think about how to achieve this?

  • create a strategic career plan for the next 1-3 years?

Aims

  • Highlight key themes from contemporary career theory to inspire proactivity and creativity in you for your personal career agility

  • Opportunity to reflect on and collate a foundation of information about yourself that will help you make career choices in the future (relating to both work and life)

  • Give you some breathing space in an environment where no judgments will be made about you – the chance to be honest with yourself about what you really want

  • Time to create a strategic plan for how you will make the most of the next 1-3 years so that you are going in the right direction for you

  • Network with your colleagues to discuss ideas, reflect on experience and support one another

Learning Outcomes

  • Explore contemporary career thinking and consider how this fits with your current approach to your career

  • Assess your career agility – your strengths and areas to focus on relating to your employability and career readiness

  • Identify your motivated skills – the skills you love using and are good at

  • Explore the work values that drive you – what will make you content in work?

  • Set personal and professional goals for the next 3 years

  • Create a plan of action for you to maximise your potential both in and outside of work

This thought provoking and interactive session will enable you to explore how career ready and employable you are, identify the work values that drive you and set personal and professional goals for the next 3 years. Along with creating a plan of action for you to maximise your potential both in and outside of work class; it will give you some breathing space in a non-judgemental environment, providing tools to be honest with yourself about what you really want. We will explore what it means to be ‘career agile’ in a constantly changing world of work.
