Career Exploration & Career Change
Unhappy in your current career and considering a change? Career change can be challenging on many fronts. Landing a job in a new career generally takes more time than landing one in a linear career path. Career Solvers can help you uncover whether a career change is right for you and help you search strategically and eliminate the most common career change mistakes. We combine introspective conversation and exercises with behavioral assessment tools to help guide you through the career change process and create an actionable plan.

Career Assessment
Behavioral research suggests that the most effective people are those who understand their strengths and weaknesses and use this information to develop strategies to meet the demands of their environment.

Gain a better understanding of your behavioral style through the online DISC assessment tool and receive your results within the same day. DISC is the most validated, reliable, personal assessment used by over 50 million people to improve lives, relationships, work productivity, teamwork, and communication.

The profile measures four dimensions of normal behavior:

  • How you respond to problems and challenges
  • How you influence others to your point of view
  • How you respond to the pace of the environment
  • How you respond to rules and procedures set by others

The report provides you with information and insights regarding:

  • Your preferred work environment
  • Adapted and natural behavior
  • Key strengths and tendencies
  • Recommendations for improving effectiveness
  • Preferred communication styles

Insights into a person’s behavioral style can help identify appropriate career paths. The results highlight specific talents you bring to a job. Success and job satisfaction come easier when there is a close match between the job criteria and the natural behavior style. Report information can be used to properly prepare you for future interviews and determine your fit within a certain organization.

Contact us directly to discuss how this strategy can work for you.
