A New Career for 2015?

If you are thinking about the possibility of a new career then read on...

Before you take the plunge it helps to undertake some analysis.

What form could this analysis take such that you are confident with your decision?

The approach that I would recommend, with or without our help is to consider 3 key areas as follows

1. Your personality preferences

2. Your drivers or motivators principally what is important to you about the work that you do

3. Skills that you have or are committed to developing, that you enjoy/know that you would enjoy using

For 1. we use a number of personality instruments. You can start the process off yourself through sites such as Authentic Happiness. These tools help to determine how you like to live and work.

For 2. we use a number of tools including Dilts Logical Levels. You can examine what is important to you at work starting with a brainstorm and then prioritising your list.

For 3. we conduct a diagnostic to understand where you are now and where you want to be in terms of skills used in your career. You can consider which skills you have that you enjoy and tailor your CV accordingly. You can consider those skills that you want to develop and then assess the ways to develop these such as through self development or a course.

I hope that this blog has given you some food for thought and that you will take action.
