In the last few years, I have dedicated my time to writing career development books and creating an innovative and highly successful course based on my Five Step Approach to Career Change Success that would help people with their own career vision in today’s employment landscape.

Prior to owning and operating a successful media company for over 20 years in Los Angeles, I was an executive with 20th Century Fox; Vice President at the Los Angeles Olympic Games Organizing Committee; Consultant to multi-national financial Deloittes & Touche and a full time University lecturer at the University of Miami, School of Business. In addition, I have worked with many Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, business owners and individuals helping them achieve their full potential.

I personally have gone through two major seismic events in own career. My latest, which happened a few years ago, prompted me to develop and create The Five Step Approach to Career Change Success to help others in achieving their own  career vision. I also saw first hand, students at the University I was lecturing at, grapple with career development plus my father was in the Royal Airforce (United Kingdom) for twenty seven years.He decided to leave the military when I was eleven because all the travelling was negatively affecting my schooling.At such an early age, I saw the difficulties my father had in the transition from military to civilian life.

When my world changed so dramatically I had to re-invent my career. I thought about what my father had gone through, I vowed to help veterans with career change.

The Five Step Approach will help you… I know… it did for me.

My experiences having gone through major career changes myself, has allowed me to develop this step by step career change approach to help everyone contemplating career change

Step One: What Do You Want ? What is your dream career ?
6 Lectures 29:54

What do you want? To be able to identify what you really want in your career is very critical. If you feel a disconnect between what you are doing now and what you feel you really want to do - then it’s time to re-evaluate and ask that one important question!  

Such a simple question; however, this question has huge ramifications. The answer to this question will provide the cornerstone for everything that matters to you. What you want, your dreams and desires, has to be tempered by realism.

Ask yourself these question

  • Do you know exactly what you want from your career?
  • Can you truly identify your goals, desires and ambitions?
  • Are you happy and satisfied with your career?
  • Are you as financially strong as you need and want to be?
  • Are you living the life you really want and having the career you really want?

Each person is unique; therefore your needs, desires and ambitions are different. It is up to you to make decisions and find for yourself what you really want.   

Preview 04:56

What are your goals in your career? What do you really want and what kind of career do you want? Everyone is different. Goals over time will change; but, it is important to begin this process of what’s important to you and what you want in a career.

  • What are your goals?
  • Your dream career?
  • What are your skills/talents?
  • What are your values?
  • What is ideal for you?

The first stage in setting goals is to consider what you want to achieve in your career, your life, in the long-term. Long-term may mean five or ten years – your decision. Setting these major goals provides the overall template that shapes all other aspects of your decision making.

Goal setting approach in summary:

  • What do you really want to do? 
  • Career goals must be identified
  • Set your career goals and tasks

Identify and clarify your career goals in detail.

Set meaningful and attainable goals.

Every task has a clearly defined outcome and time frame.

Each task is a building block in achieving your larger goal.

Let this course help you in your goal setting.


What are your Goals? Identify your goals/tasks
05:35

The average person can expect to change careers several times in their lifetime.  What circumstances would cause an individual to potentially change careers? Are you thinking of a career change? 

Are you contemplating or in the process of a Career Change?

Are you looking for help and guidance in your future career path?

Are you looking for a proven and effective Career Change Approach?

This course will answer many of your questions and provide that service. 

Why? How? When ? etc., are all questions we shall discuss


Why & When Career Change : Understand the rationale.
06:33

Identifying what you want in a career and the potential for changing career paths requires a great deal of determination and perseverance. Focus on " anything is possible and if others can do it why not me". Once you grasp that meaning suddenly your goals become achievable and the 'why not me" becomes attainable.  

Why Not You ? Motivation, Attitude.....
08:48

It is interesting to discuss whether you feel you are a left side of the brain person or a right side of the brain person?  Are you the creative type or the numbers type?  Business, finance or creative, marketing… Or both?

People tend to view themselves one dimensionally - artist or accountant. People who are left-brain thinkers are often better at and enjoy math and science over art and literature, making them perfect candidates for a career in engineering.

Socially-oriented people are usually right-brain thinkers. Right-brain thinkers love visual explanations over text explanations and are more interested in the initial creative process.

Those who are left-brain thinkers are more into processing information and analyzing the details than focusing on the creative.

So which are you and does it affect your thoughts on a career path?

Evaluate your present situation. The ability to focus and analyze where you are presently in your career is an important step in your evaluation of where you might wish to go. Is it time for a serious re-evaluation of your career status? Is it potentially time to make changes? How do you know when you need to change your career path?              Ask yourself theses questions?

  •  Are you happy?
  • Are you challenged?
  • Are you compensated adequately?
  • Do you have job satisfaction?
  • Do you feel your career is going in the right direction?
  • What are your priorities in life and your career?

5 Lectures 09:12

Do you have the right tools, strategies, skills and techniques to succeed in your venture? Do you have the right skills and experience for your forward career development. They need to be identified, quantified and evaluated. This lecture provides the questions and asnwers to assist you in understanding what it takes to  move forward in your own career development.

Do You Have What It Takes? Do you have the right business skills ?
03:16

Transferable skills are the skills acquired during your working career.  These skills are an integral part of the baby boomers pool of assets. The concept of transferable skills is a vital career component.

Which skills are best suited to achieving your goals?  Without being specific to certain career paths we can identify certain skills that are required to be successful in any career. What are these fundamental requirements for career success?

Unlike job-related skills, which tend to be used only in one type of employment, transferable skills are skills that can be used in every occupation, regardless of the type of work. They are universal skills — you can transfer them from one type of work to another without much effort on your part or training from the employer.

We shall examine the five categories and evaluate your particular skill set against those categories and find areas to improve and enhance your own asset portfolio. 

Transferable skills - what are they and how do you get them?
03:05

In today's career environment it is important to focus on providing true value to who ever your work for or with. Therefore it is important to understand and very very aware of the difference between activity verses accomplishment. This lecture discusses this area and why so important.

 

Activity V's Accomplishment - help you succeed
00:40

Both Career management and Time management are skills that are required for career success.

Career management means taking an active involvement in where your career is going. This demands thought and contemplation. The outcome of successful career management should ensure professional fulfillment, a balanced life and career, effective goal achievement and financial security. Taking your career into your own hands, molding it to what you wish and finding the career plan that works for you. That is career management. 

Time management is planning and exercising control over the amount of time spent on specific activities in order to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity.Time management is a skill. You need practice and you need discipline. Organization allows you to plan

Career Management - focus on what's important

We have progressed through Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Five Step Approach. These steps have created the platform to focus on Step 4… Career Roadmap.  By this stage, a pathway has been created to provide a vehicle, a template to achieve success.

WHAT IS A CAREER ROADMAP

To be successful you need a plan – a career roadmap to help guide you and keep you on the right path. A career roadmap will help you create a clear set of tasks and goals that are uniquely your career DNA. The roadmap will assist you in creating a well-defined action plan to provide you the focus and confidence necessary to attain those goals.

You will create your own Roadmap from all the work you have done in the previous steps of the course.

What Is a Career Roadmap? This is your template to success

Every individual will have their own way of developing and creating their career roadmap. We all are unique in our career skills, experiences and education.
