PD Career Building Toolkit 3rd Edition (USB)
Effective career management involves several key components. These include personal reflection, identifying career possibilities, researching changes in the workplace, making career decisions and implementing action plans, finding and securing appropriate work, and ultimately, achieving career success and job satisfaction. This customizable Toolkit helps individuals take a fresh look at themselves and their careers. By focusing on their unique strengths, challenges, values, and preferences, workshop participants can discover their best fit in today’s world of work.
The 3rd edition includes an all-new PowerPoint presentation with an updated design and graphics. Also included are companion activities for delivering a career building workshop virtually, and additional handouts.
Each toolkit provides:
- a workshop outline relevant to the workshop theme
- a quick overview of a basic Personality Dimensions® workshop
- basic Personality Dimensions® handouts
- handouts specific to the workshop theme
- a customized PowerPoint® presentation
- several exercises, tailored to the workshop theme, for:
– getting started (icebreakers)
– intensifying the temperaments (brightening)
– working together and embracing differences (blending)
– developing the least-preferred style (stretching)
Recognizing that we all like to individualize our workshops, this package also includes PowerPoint® presentation and masters of workshop handouts that you can customize to meet the objectives of your clients. Each Toolkit provides facilitator’s notes for each activity, complete with learning objectives and detailed instructions. Many exercises include tips for customizing and suggested variations; all exercises include instructions for debriefing.
One of the best features of the Toolkits is the time that they save you in producing your own workshops. This is time that you could be using to promote your services or conduct programs, and time is money. Workshop preparation can often take up as much as a week of your time, but the Toolkits have it all, from complete activity outlines to a beautifully designed, professional Power Point® presentation.
The real bonus to you is that you can go back to your existing clients with totally new focuses and sets of outcomes. You can generate repeat business with relative ease: an introductory day workshop, followed by a day of team building, followed by a day of leadership development or sales/marketing/customer service focus, followed up with a day on work-life balance. Four sessions with one client, with whom you have an established rapport, is easier to book than four separate introductory sessions with four new clients!
