  4. 4. Retooling yourself can be a daunting task…
  5. 5. You might have the feeling that you’re starting over from scratch
  6. 6. But that’s not true.
  7. 7. You do have experience that will be valuable in your new or different job. Things like… – Knowing how businesses work – Getting along with co-workers – Important work habits, etc. They’ll give you an advantage over workers with no experience.
  8. 8. Economic fluctuations coupled by public panic have affected the corporate world, the workplace, and your own otherwise promising career progression. These changes have been swift and severe, with recent jobless claims rising to their highest since the early 1980’s. But there is good news; for you, the prospect of better times ahead can be the momentum for a new approach to managing your career and your fresh personal development initiative to increasing your CAREER POTENTIAL.
  9. 9. Your potential is highly personal. To some it may mean a promotion to senior management or impressive compensation, while to others it might mean gaining marketable leadership skills or even pursuing an entrepreneurial dream. Each of us brings a unique skill to the job market. How you present yourself to employers, customers, etc can contribute to your success and increase your career potential. Regardless of your interpretation, you can’t change the economy on your own. With this in mind, your value can be enhanced with a focused new and positive mindset. As you re-tool your career for a future recovery, you can capitalize on your strengths and get beyond fear of the unknown.
  10. 10. If You are Working… Build On-the-Job Value Now
  11. 11. • Become indispensable. • Expand your skill set so that you can offer more to the company - an immediate way to increase career potential. • Align your objectives and activities with business objectives. • Your value to the company… rises equally to your contributions to the bottom line. • Explore moonlighting or freelancing if you feel your job may be threatened or believe it's a good defensive move. This will give you an inside look into the outside world before you exit. • Extra projects. Be sure what you take on doesn't interfere in any way with the dedication or energy you put forth for your current position. • Be a promoter. When you sing the praises of your company, some of the glory is inevitably reflected back on you. • Consider writing; for the company's e-newsletters or Intranet, professional blogs, journals, and trade publications, or speaking at local business functions. • Being a proactive problem solver and office diplomat is a lifelong, transferable skill. • Learning hard lessons from tough times is helpful, but don't dwell on the negative. • Build positive energy and determination with the possibilities, you will increase your career potential as the recovery gradually takes hold.
  12. 12. Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” Muhammad Ali
  13. 13. This image is a mosaic of employees within a company. Although we can’t see exactly what they’re doing in each individual frame, their change in outcomes or image can transform the entire landscape of the overall company picture.
  14. 14. Transforming Yourself
  15. 15. So, how do you transform yourself? The most obvious is to go back to school or get more training. But before you spend the time and money, however, do a self-assessment to be sure you need it. Start by yourself… you might want to work with a career advisor if you get stuck. Advisors have tools that can help identify your skill strengths. Here's a suggestion to get started.
  16. 16. First, design your career objectives based on what would bring you the greatest long-term satisfaction. Your career journey could take you into un-chartered territory as you gradually achieve greater marketable value. Today's economy necessitates taking practical actions that will move your career forward… toward your big- picture goals.
  17. 17. Start with the big picture of what you do and enjoy
  18. 18. Make a list of all the things you know how to do well. Don’t limit yourself to work-related skills. – Think of the things you do as hobbies, as a volunteer, etc. Your new job may be in a totally new field for you and use some of these skills. Make a list of what you know. This could include a specialized program or languages, designing an organic herb garden, how to apply theatrical make-up or talent of some sort. This list might be hard to make since we rarely think about what we know when we’re working on a task—whether at home or on the job.
  19. 19. Group Breakout Session  Brainstorm about what jobs use the skills you’ve put on your two lists. Be wild and crazy when you’re making this list. You can always go back later and get rid of the totally “off the wall” ideas.  Objective - Next, find possible leadership characteristics through personal experience in each selection. Split into groups.  Activity - Share a story about the best or most influential careers you have encountered. Ask each other the question “What was it that makes this career or business concept important to me?” Then as a group, identify the traits that all business leaders seemed to share.  Discussion - List common characteristics of a great job? What about the worst jobs you have encountered?
  20. 20. It wasn't as though I really made a commitment to it; there wasn't anything else around. So I wasn't driven to become an actor… it just seemed to be the thing that I managed to do best. Paul Newman
  21. 21. Which Direction to Go? Organize your List of Brainstormed Ideas • Can you categorize them? Either by type or specific task of an organization that would use them and group them together. • Next, put them in order of preference—the one(s) you like best first, etc. • Do any of your top three categories require more training? If so, then find a program that gives you the skills you need (check out their job placement statistics as well as their courses).
  22. 22. Which Direction to Go? Potential Businesses or Employers? • Start looking for companies that use these skills categories. They might not be companies with job postings at the moment, but they are companies you should investigate. • The more companies you can put on your list, the more likely you are to find an opening for this career path. Use online and off ads to identify, area Yellow Pages, etc. Check business directories at the library. Visit one-stop career centers to check out their resources. • Your next job may be totally unrelated to your last. Or it may be a variation on it. Just be willing to change focus. Keep a positive attitude. And get help if you need it.
  23. 23. Focus On You
  24. 24. Tactical Steps • Don't update your resume, rewrite it… If you take a completely fresh look at the career objectives that best reflect your talents and passions, your background will naturally flow from them. • In addition, when you express your most valued accomplishments at each job, you'll also attract the most suitable position for who you are and what you can contribute, boosting your career potential. • Keep an updated list of recommendations from colleagues and professional contacts handy so you'll be ready if and when you need them.
  25. 25. Tactical Steps • Network relentlessly. One constant in business is that people prefer doing business with those they know and trust. When you're face to face with others, they get to know you as a person first, and a career professional second. Who you know is an important complement to what you know. • If you tend to be shy in social situations, commit to memory a few lighthearted icebreakers, or brief introductions and have business cards handy, but always ask how you can help the other person.
