Career Development

Having a career development dialogue needs preparation and skills, especially on the side of the supervisor. COE’s career development solutions support supervisors and staff to hold a quality career development coaching.

Knowing someone’s Career Anchor or Personality Profile will help guiding him in the right direction. Furthermore, supporting this person with adequate development options such as mentoring, project work, job rotation, etc., ensures that his career vision becomes a reality over time.

Step 1: Explore Career Aspirations and Career Development Options

In order to develop a career roadmap, exploring career aspirations is an important step. And, questions about personal gifts, talents and passion would be useful to guide someone through career visioning. Additionally, it might be of benefit to analyse personal career motivators (Career Anchors by Edgar Henry Schein) and personality profiles such as DiSC because certain personality characteristics match some roles better than others.

Step 2: Identify Capability Gaps

An honest self-assessment of own competencies (knowledge, skills, attitudes) against the required competencies is essential for building an effective career plan. In addition, supervisors give their perspective.

Step 3: Perform Role Readiness Analysis and Career Planning

Together with the supervisor and based on available information about gaps and career targets, a personal career development plan will be developed.

Step 4: Navigate Personal Career Road-map

Finally, implementing this career plan involves frequent milestone checks and updates of the plan. Because personal aspirations may change, personal capabilities will be enriched and the environment will undergo continuous changes as well,  career plans should, if they should be taken seriously, reflect all these changes.
