Take ownership for your career development and prepare effectively for a career conversation
I loved the way this workshop was interactive, practical, and helped me to think about my career and development.

Feeling fulfilled is important to motivation, productivity, and job satisfaction. And yet, many of us spend more time planning our next vacation than we do thinking about our future at work. The idea that employees should take ownership of their own professional development has been around for some time. But they can’t do it alone. Employees need the tools to own their own careers. And they need support from their manager and the organisation. The Career Compass Workshop helps people take ownership of their career development. It gives them tools to prepare for a career conversation, so they can get the support they need.
Helping employees develop their careers within your organisation
