Developing Your Abilities and Taking Control of Your Career
In study after study, employers from across the continent have revealed their vision of an “ideal” worker to labor force experts. Technical and academic skills are important to employability, they say, but as essential are personal, interpersonal, and self-management abilities. They want strong communicators who are adaptable, accountable, and eager to learn. Critical thinkers who are team players and customer-oriented. Keen observers with positive attitudes who are honest and ethical.
When hearing expectations like these, employees often become overwhelmed, concerned that they will never be able to meet them, or threatened because they don’t know how to begin developing such abilities.
Instead of motivating workers to learn and grow, these fairly stringent demands frequently only add to their confusion. Confused employees too easily become half-hearted workers.
In a friendly, non-threatening way, the Survivability Pro™ career self-management program demystifies and drives home the concept of employability, but from the individual’s perspective.
It helps employees take control of their own career advancement. It provides them with a concrete plan of action for skill development to enhance their own careers and increase their value to existing employers.
Based on the book, Survivability: Career Strategies for the New World of Work, by Janis Foord Kirk, and supported by workshops and training programs developed over 8 years, Survivability Pro™ is a tried and proven model that has already helped thousands of employees improve their career self-management skills.
