Most employees believe their managers have their best interests at heart. Many managers want to help, but don’t know how. Employees are typically thrown into the water and expected to sink or swim, and few are given a manual on how to swim.
Career advice is typically reactive, tactical, and not tied to a company’s culture or a strategic road map for career success. Those who receive daily work instructions are seldom given the road map for how to proactively compete for jobs and promotions.
This course begins with a short review of the Strategic Formula #1 and how well you are currently competing. Then we explain a new paradigm for becoming the Value Worker that companies want to hire and promote. Next, we disclose a strategic paradigm definition that may surprise most of you. I call this strategic paradigm the “Laws of Business”. This is the same definition that businesses use for success and you can too. Finally, we show you the Strategic Career Road Map for how to compete in your career marketplace. You can use this Road Map immediately to get started on optimizing your personally defined path toward future career success.
