Motivational Career Seminar - Full Description

 
Motivational Career Seminar – Saturday 29th June 2013
Map your motivation as a tool to navigate career success today
Map your future career path with Ignite
Two experts. One day. One map. Your future career.
Purpose
Each week we encounter many professionals across a number of business sectors who ask us for advice about their career trajectory, keen for ideas and tactics yet short of time. The most commonly asked questions we receive are “Where next for me in my current role? How can I get there?

Our solution is therefore to compress all our ideas and experience of resolving these questions into one day of coaching with 10 highly motivated individuals who want to crack the code to career success. We are very much focused on delivering a seminar which is focused on you achieving  “what next “ and “when “ in your career.

Our plan for the day is to provide a variety of tools and frameworks which give clarity and insight on how to get on the right career track and build the motivation to achieve those goals. We take time to listen and understand exactly the context in which each participant operates best to focus the coaching on options and goals and how to achieve them.  The afternoon is dedicated to developing an action plan tailored to each individual and his / her own particular professional discipline, career path and business sector.

We also offer follow up after our session to ensure that you are on track to reaching your goals as swift execution of your plan is a critical success factor in achieving your plan.

We look forward to seeing you on the 29th June.

Background and goals
We run Motivational Career Seminars to provide a unique and stimulating environment for ambitious professionals to explore the dimensions through which to drive their career success.

The Seminar addresses all the elements of an effective and motivating career strategy in just one day. It provides time for creativity, practice, reflection, and action planning with accountability and also a flexible and interactive environment that adapts to the specific needs of each group of participants.

It is suitable for all those who want to challenge themselves to achieve more, those who have ambitions beyond their current role, those looking to accelerate their career trajectory within their current organisation, looking for a new challenge altogether or find themselves involuntarily looking for alternative employment.

Our approach
Motivational Career Seminars are structured around our belief that exceptional career success and performance is critically dependent on how motivated we are.  Motivation drives engagement and commitment:
·      
    Performance = Skills * Motivation

Our seminars will cover all the key elements necessary to ensure you achieve your goals and potential in your career.
       Core of career success:
       We will identify what motivates you at work?
       We will describe what motivates you?
       We will measure and monitor what motivates you?
       We will help you design the appropriate career strategy to maximise your motivations?

Once we have established your core motivations we are able to apply coaching techniques to ensure you generate your personal career vision and commitment to your action plan. 
       
    Goal
       What do you want to specifically achieve?
       What is your goal/desired outcome?

       Options
       What are your options?
       Create and list as many alternative courses as possible.  Quantity of ideas more important at this stage than quality/feasibility
       Reality:
       Where are you now?
       Objective assessment of current situation.  Get clear on obstacles to overcome/challenges to meet
       
Will/Commitment:
       What are the actions you are going to take?  By when?
       Create an action list/timetable with deadlines etc.
       What could interfere with the achievement of your goals

We will also endeavour to combine the skills and experience of seminar participants to add richness and depth to our outcomes in addition to Sarah and Simon’s facilitation.

"Unlike most profiling tools that simply scratch the surface of user psychology, Motivational Maps provides deep and actionable understanding that can lead to breakthrough improvements."

Dr Dave Richards
“I have used quite a lot of psychometric type tests and found Motivational Maps to be a real eye opener. They helped to validate the decision I made a couple of years ago to change careers and seek a new path in a way that no other test could compete with. I would definitely recommend Motivational Maps as a tool to get feedback on your own and others motivations. Thank you James.”
