A "Career" is more than just work, it is the way you blend your strengths, passions, values, and interests into your days and years. It's how you balance all the things that are important in your life. Ideally, your work will be personally satisfying, pay you a decent wage, engage you, and provide time flexibility for your life outside of the job. As a result of a Career Wellness Checkup, you will clarify professional goals and confirm or discover the next steps to take.

Do I REally need career COUNSELING / help?

Most people think they can muscle through and figure things out on their own. And most of us are so busy navigating the rhythms of daily life and making a living that we lose sight of how to live. You can gain balance in your life by connecting with an experienced career counselor who will help you identify and examine professional options that will facilitate you reaching short and long term goals. There are many factors that go into career satisfaction, including understanding industries, employment trends, and how *you,* with your unique set of skills, values, interests, and abilities will find a satisfying work "fit;" that is why it is important for an experienced professional to assist you in clarifying your goals and plans.

To arrive at clarity

METHOD


To arrive at clarity

an objective, standardized measure of your natural abilities

For a "Career Checkup" I use a standardized, objective assessment called the Highlands Ability Battery (HAB). The HAB is a gold-standard assessment tool designed to identify and unify individual and collective strengths, abilities and preferences. It measures natural abilities, providing understanding of the environments and contexts that help us to be most productive. In addition to this understanding, it offers the language to communicate these parameters to others.

The HAB is useful for individuals at all career stages. Upon completing the assessment (17 different work samples) you will receive a 28-page customized report that reflect what you do well under pressure and what environments are most satisfying for you.

The whole process takes about 6 hours total. Invest in yourself and your future.

Have a one on one session to:

1) Articulate what you intuit about yourself.

2) Identify which contexts will bring out your productivity.

3) Describe how you best problem solve and communicate your competencies clearly.

4) Set goals to build on your strengths.

5) Identify ways to develop your talent.
