This is YOUR journey!
If you’re here today, maybe it’s because you need to find a job, change your career path, or “scale up” your career. You have taken a critical step in investing in one of life’s greatest personal and financial growth vehicles— your career! You’re also here because you realize that no one will hand you your dreams. Instead, you have to make them happen. It will take some work, effort, and focus– but what Career5 has created is a guided system to make it easier for you to organize your strategy and actions.
How It Works
You can go through each of the steps throughout the roadmap or just pick and choose the ones you want to work on. If you are working with a coach, your coach will guide you through the steps specific to your needs. Take a tour of the Career5 Roadmap Platform.
Key Areas that You Work through Show Up in My Career Strategic Plan
As you work through your roadmap sections and type in areas like your strengths, your brand statement, your salary growth, etc., key areas will show in My Career Strategic Plan.
By having a career strategic plan, you can concentrate on what’s important to you… which is will help assure that you have a meaningful impactful work-life where you are thriving and growing.
Through our research and experience with our clients, we have discovered the best way to get our clients there is with:
- A meaningful plan
- An empowered mindset
- Career, job search, and salary growth strategies
- An action plan to keep you on track
A Meaningful Plan
By having a meaningful plan– one that threads purpose into your work on a daily basis– you will have the fuel to get out of bed every morning to make change and impact on a positive level. This is key to our clients making true progress. Victor Frankl, a renowned psychologist and concentration camp survivor and author of Man’s Search for Meaning wrote about this core concept: the search for meaning is a central task of existence. We all want to know why we are here and how we can best move forward in our life path.
“If we get up every morning and ask ourselves, ‘How can we best serve this planet today?’, it puts us into an entirely different place of existing in our careers.” -Victor Frankl
An Empowered Mindset
By having an empowered mindset, you will always be able to move forward, even through difficult situations. You are now in a growing clan of people who treat their careers as their own personal business (think YOU, Inc.)! You will now be in the driver’s seat, instead of the passenger’s. This means moving through your career with intention and forethought so you can achieve your desired goals instead of just dreaming about them!
Map out Your Strategy
By mapping out your career and salary growth (your roadmap), using the 5 building blocks below, you have a much great chance of reaching that dream position you have always wanted because the power of forethought and intention have come into play. The runway has been cleared and you are ready to take off. We are here for you the entire way– whether you are completing the roadmap as a self-directed course, or have purchased a coaching package.
Building blocks to mapping out your plan to “scale up” your career:
- Discover: strengths, drives, & meaning (know your value and mission statement
- Align: for your version of success, bringing life goals into work wherever possible
- Grow: Map out your growth to 2 positions above, align skills, and build your network
- Market: Have your brand, differentiator and measurable statements dialed in and memorable
- Maximize: Dial in key areas like building your value, and prioritizing and time management so that you can reach your long-term goals and earn the salary you deserve.
Your Action Plan
By having an action plan that you use to keep you on track (My Action Plan is on the left menu below My Job Search Roadmap), you will be able to take it step-by-step. Making big changes in your career can be daunting, so your Action Plan will keep you on track and allow you to just to focus on one step at a time, and before you know it, you will be at your destination!
Why Is A Plan So Important?
Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, recently studied the art and science of goal setting.
“By having an actionable plan, you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down ona regular basis.” – Dr. Gail Matthews¹
Your Efforts Will Pay Off Exponentially
When you thrive, prosper, and your spark shines through, you can pass your talents and gifts to others in a positive and impactful way. And because you are shining more brightly, the world becomes a better place. It’s the reason why we stop to see people perform in the streets, pay top dollar for a concert, and why some people get hired over others for a job opening.
Neither your boss, parents, or partner can make your dreams happen. They might be able to support you, but it is ultimately up to you, your outlook, and focus that will make it happen. You can always count on our support along the way!.
So let’s start working on your roadmap so you can carve out that work-life that you deserve!
