While employer-provided professional development and training opportunities are on the upswing, personal goal setting and long-term career planning often falls into the hands of individual employees. Using the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment, participants will analyze their personal strengths to consider their career development, work on goal setting and analyze the resources needed to meet their ultimate goals. Exercises will cover: professional purpose; discovering strengths and putting them to work; setting effective goals; and planning for professional development.
Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of their professional track, their personal strengths and how they translate to the workplace, and how to set effective goals for a current or future position. This session is ideal for individuals seeking guidance and discussion on effectively setting goals and planning for their own career progression, whether in their current field or another.
