Free Career Consultation
So what’s the benefit to you?
You’ll get a much broader insight into how you behave as well as an understanding of what drives you. The SHL product we are trialling provides measurements across 32 different personality dimensions ranging from relationships with people (persuasiveness, outspoken, control etc) to thinking styles (evaluative, conventional , conceptual etc) to feelings and emotions, (relaxed, worrying, tough minded etc). We’ll also provide an occupational interests assessment. This is a great opportunity for you to identify a variety of areas that suit you from a work perspective. Experience tells us that those who enjoy their work are more productive, happier and have a better life balance.
Some examples of how we have helped people are given below:
One client could not understand why her safe, family friendly, not too pressurised, well paid job was so stressful for her. We helped her to identify the reasons and supported her to take action without necessarily moving job.
Another client didn’t understand how he might be seen as dominating any groups or teams he took part in. We helped him to recognise this and how this would impact his future management success as well as relationships with family and friends. We suggested ways he could change his approach.
A third example is of a client with very high caring tendencies. She was considering making a change to work as a Counsellor. However, very high caring tendencies can sometimes mean too much involvement in other people’s problems, so we suggested ways of managing this issue. As she also really liked working in teams, the idea of working on her own a lot of the time may have been a problem. So we also identified some other suitable options. She also found particularly helpful, identifying how much of a worrier she was and the strategies we put in place to help her manage these (See direct client testimonials by clicking here)
You hopefully can see there is no right or wrong or measurement of ability in the assessments we normally use. The assessments are a starting point for discussion rather than an end in themselves. We don't judge, label or tell people what to do, instead we ask useful questions in a very supportive and safe environment.
So what’s involved in this free career consultation?
Attendance at our office in Mount Merrion(near Stillorgan) on two separate occasions, (each session between one to two hours) and completion of an on line questionnaire. (maximum 50 minutes required) as well as a pen and pencil exercise. In the first session, we discuss your work experience, values, motivations, review your CV and discuss any issues you want to raise in addition to the questionnaires mentioned above. In the second session we feed back the results of the assessments and discuss options on how you can get more from your working life.
