Career Management

In the early days of corporations, the management of one’s career was simple: you did as the manager told you. But as companies have evolved and the freedom and rights of employees have proliferated, the task of career management has rightfully fallen to the employee. Be free, they were told, and follow your passion.

Unfortunately, no one told them how.

Today, many organizations struggle with a lack of employee engagement, low productivity, and high turn-over. A motivated employee is the solution, but uncovering that motivation has, in the past, felt challenging and convoluted.


Building A Career Culture

Managers of today’s organizations are busy with “work” and often don’t feel they have time to dedicate to their team. But the conversations, encouragement, and direction provided in the management of people is incredibly beneficial.

Building a career culture within your organization not only bolsters achievement and heightens productivity, it also elevates your brand as an employer and increases the desirability of your workplace.

At Optimum Talent, we help organizations in two ways: we teach managers how to have career conversations with their staff and we teach employees how to take accountability for their careers. When managers are open and honest and employees are equipped and accountable, more energy can be directed to fruitful activities. Everyone is performing.


Our Approach


Organizational Assessment

As part of our Organizational Assessment, we partner with you in designing and implementing your career management strategy, incorporating the programs and tools that are already in place at the organization, and addressing any existing gaps


Workshops

Optimum Talent runs two workshops, one for employees and one for managers: Successfully Navigating and Managing your Career and The Art of Career Coaching Conversations.

 

  • Successfully Navigating and Managing your Career
    This workshop for employees discusses career accountability, training employees to become the advocates and drivers of their own careers. It teaches them to define their career aspirations, develop a personal brand, and network within their organization.
  • The Art of Career Coaching Conversations
    This workshop, designed for managers, explains the ROI of a strong career culture and the value of one-to-one conversations with staff. It provides a process for positioning and managing career conversations rather than performance management conversations.

 

SuccessFinder Self-Assessment Tool

The SuccessFinder Assessment produces a complete behavioural profile, void of human bias, that gives individuals increased self-awareness and helps them to authentically communicate their strengths and weaknesses.

 


Coaching

Coaching is an optional component available to both managers and employees. Sessions can be 1-2 hours, or can be offered as a bucket, from which the entire organization draws.
