This course provides employees the advanced skills and principles necessary to expedite their career advancement in the consulting industry. There are many personal benefits plus millions of dollars in career earnings available to those who can earn promotions just a few years earlier than the average employee. I have observed this happen time-and-time again throughout my 30-year career in the consulting industry. In fact I was one of those people. What I have realized is there are certain ways and characteristics by which high-performance individuals leverage basic skills to achieve higher career trajectory. In this course I reveal 11 of the most impactful of these "secrets."
I use real examples of how employees have used these secrets to their advantage. I have compiled these examples into a simple story of one individual who successfully navigated through their company and industry to expedite their career advancement. After each of the five lectures I provide examples and practices that can be implemented immediately to achieve real results.
The course wraps up with the basic approach for creating a career development plan to organize the process and assist throughout the employee development. I provide an example from the story of how our high-performance employee created her plan and I list tips and suggestions to get started.
While many of the examples focus around the architecture and engineering industry, the skills and principles are fundamental to just about all professional services communities.
