Managing Your Career for the Short and Long Term (P865)

A Proactive Approach to Maximize Your Job Satisfaction and Performance

As an employee, doing work that is suited to your aptitudes and interests is a fundamental contributor to job satisfaction and effectiveness. Many employers have realized that when employees are in positions where the “fit” is right, high retention and good performance are the natural outcomes.

Unfortunately, many employees have responsibilities that they are not suited to, or where external circumstances have guided their career choices rather than carefully considered decision-making.

In this fast-changing knowledge economy it is equally important for both employers and employees that workers learn how to manage and develop their careers in a way which maximizes personal success and fulfillment while delivering performance to employers, clients or stakeholders.

This workshop will give you the critical skills, insights and self-awareness to more effectively guide your career decision-making. Just prior to the course, you will complete an online DiSC personality assessment, a multi-purpose learning instrument to help you discover behavioural strengths and areas for augmentation.

This is a two-day workshop in Ottawa.

Space is still available for all course dates listed, unless otherwise noted.

Please note: because an online assessment is to be completed prior to the workshop, participant substitutions cannot be accepted if submitted less than 10 business days prior to the course date.
