This valuable 90-minute session is my first touchpoint with all new clients and will give us an opportunity to dig into your career history as well as your plans. At the conclusion of the session, I will personally walk you through written summary of What’s Working, What Needs Attention, and What Next Steps need to be considered in your career.
What’s Working: We want to cover this because, often when a person is considering a change, they are more focused on what is NOT working rather than what IS working. It’s important, if you’re going to go a new direction, to have an initial sense of what works about you, and perhaps even an inkling of that unique essence that you bring to everything you touch.
What Needs Attention: Next, we want to see what elements of your career and progress may be in your blind spot such that you can’t see the forest for the trees in your own situation. It’s natural, because we’re all to close to ourselves to see our own blind spots. I give you insight on what you can’t see for yourself.
Next Steps: Then I give you a detailed plan of actions to take to begin to move from where you are to where you want to be.
This session alone generates enormous insights for clients and is an incredible stand-alone value at the regular price, without the 3 free books!
“I just went through the Career Review Session with Darrell and I am very impressed. He is very professional and has an extraordinary analysis and synthesis capacity. In only 90 minutes he came up with an extremely accurate description. Most of the things he brought up I honestly would not have been capable of realizing myself. His approach gave me a fresh perspective of my professional career and the opportunity to redirect my job search into a campaign which highlights my natural talents that ultimately will differentiate me from the rest and will land a job that inspires and fulfills my vision.”
—Eugenio L., CFO and International Finance Manager
“I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about how someone can gather information about you in 70 minutes and then provide you w/a written summary in 20 minutes. Darrell quickly cleared my skepticism after I began to read his summary from my Career Review session. His analysis/assessment was mind blowing for me because he was able to ‘very eloquently’ articulate my strengths, which confirmed what I had been sharing with others about myself. After the session, I felt empowered and confident. The light revealed by Darrell and the next steps he provided will be my motivators and driving forces to fulfill my passions and vocation. What an AWESOME experience!”
—Monica M., HR Professional
“Insightful, positive, and motivating Darrell was able to extract with razor sharp precision, the core essence of my unique value to employers. These revealing observations about my successful personal characteristics gave me tremendous confidence during a recent interview. It awakened critical awareness about my marketability, my deepest desires and goals, and how I can go about attaining them. From this, I feel very enthusiastic about 2010 and what it will bring for me. Darrell is a fabulous coach and motivator!”
—Jeanne C., Senior VP Marketing
“It was good to talk to you today. I really like your approach of doing your own research. You also worked my strengths out. I am thinking right now of how I can initiate a backdoor campaign. Thanks!”
—Martin M., General Manager/Mining Engineer
“I appreciate the time you took to do a Career Review with me. You helped clarify and summarize those qualities and skills that have supported my professional success, as well as outlined a process I can use to direct those skills to more closely reflect my own priorities and values, so I can have a larger impact going forward. Nice work!”
