  • Make Decisions (prioritize face
    tradeoffs)
  • Write a Plan (theme-based plan)
  • Get Support (cant do it alone)_

15
But I know the job I want!
  • Before you get too attached to a solution to your
    career woes (ie, getting promoted starting your
    own business).
  • - tell me what you want more or/less of
  • - tell me how you want to serve others
  • - tell me the tradeoffs you will make
  • - write it down (using themes!)
  • - research a range of options that could work
  • - organize your sponsors and support

16
Self-Assessment Categories
  • History
  • Skills
  • Interests
  • Values
  • Style
  • Beliefs

17
Some 21st century truths
  • Careers immediate and long term quests for
    meaning, service, fit NOT a series of job titles
    or promotions
  • Much of what the marketplace needs hasnt been
    identified yet
  • We will be as happy at work as we agree to be

18
Sample Themes
  • Expertise.at innovation cost savings
    leadership JIT information for market analyses
  • Creativity.graphic depictions of ideas org
    structure
  • Deal makingfor start-ups for broad org change

19
OPTIONS
  • Change the JOB structure
  • Change YOUR impact

20
Now about YOU?
  • How many of YOU see yourselves at a professional
    or personal turning point?

21
Adults care about
  • Making a difference
  • Learning
  • Right balance
  • Right reward
  • Right recognition and visibility
  • Fun

22
NO MATTER WHAT
  • Decide WHAT you want to get an Ain during your
    career
  • Stress/unhappiness comes from NOT excelling at
    our priorities

23
A Helpful Career Plan is..
  • Written
  • Reviewed by others
  • Based on data
  • Theme based (not targeting a job title)
  • Identifies WIFMs for employer and candidate
  • Sponsored by advocates

24
Assessement Thinking
  • More of / Less of
  • Job Breakdown (content role context approach)
  • Think themes

25
Sample Plan
  • What (essential job elements)
  • Why (indiv/org rationale)
  • How (sample titles roles)
  • Where (possible areas types of org)
  • When (tentative timing)
  • Who (key sponsors and roles)
  • Next steps (actions milestones)

26
Why write it down???
  • The most fundamental choice we have to make in
    our lives is to create a future of our own
    choosingand the initial step toward real
    autonomy we must take is to put into words a
    future we wish to create.
  • Peter Block

Career Plan Formats

  • More of/Less of

Common Mistakes

    of our
  • identity
