What is Group career training?
Reasons to begin a Group career training course vary from person to person. There may be a need to satisfy personal curiosity or ambition, or a vague notion that your work situation is not quite what it should be but you are at a loss what to do about it. And, of course, a reorganization and unavoidable career change may make you want to find out what would best fit your individual needs. In a Group career training course you will learn how to gain more insight into your talents and possibilities and how to harness your energy and power to make the necessary steps in your career. This is done in a group context, with your colleagues, aiming to learn from each other and to keep each other keen in the realization of your desired development.
It takes courage to work on yourself and to find out who you are and where and how you would function best. Making these steps will lead to increased satisfaction and more joy in your work.
Objectives of Group career training
Group career training aims to give participants increased self-insight in what concrete steps they can take to develop their talents and further their career. The training concentrates on the use of positive energy, drive and self-confidence to make your talents flourish.
Gaining insight and learning how to function optimally within your own limits and possibilities is an important factor in reinforcing professional self-confidence and job satisfaction. Your personal learning process will be stimulated by the group as it provides a mirror for reflection. Additionally, working on personal learning objectives as a group will boost its effectiveness.
A Group career training will be held in 3 morning meetings of 4 hours. A group will consist of a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 participants. Exercises and tools will be given for home and work situations. Meetings are short and intense. Personal processing and implementing the material will take 2 hours per meeting. Meetings take place every 2 weeks. Participants should put subject matter in practice at home.
