Lead your employees, clients, or students on a career path to success with Career Anchors, the training package that’s been an industry standard for more than 40 years. Developed by Edgar Schein, a well-known author and professor at MIT’s Sloan School of Management, the learning starts with a 40-item self assessment that pinpoints one’s perceived areas of competence, motives, and values related to work choices. Schein cites eight different “career anchors:”
General Managerial Competence
Service/Dedication to a Cause
Following the diagnostic assessment, the Participant Workbook walks individuals through the next steps in analyzing and understanding their career values. Together, it’s a comprehensive tool that helps people to:
Understand what career development is all about.
Analyze and create a personal career history.
Relate career anchors to both current and future jobs.
Develop actionable “role maps”.
The Facilitator's Guide Package explains how to administer and debrief both the Self-Assessment and Participant Workbook. It also includes a section on job/role analysis and how to use it in career coaching and several workshop designs that range from a 30-45 minute job/role analysis to a half-day workshop.
