Today, we are all expected to ‘manage our own careers’. The days of careers being managed for us have virtually disappeared.
Our experience show that people who manage their careers effectively balance their own needs with those of their employer. In practice, this means paying attention to both your own and your employer’s needs, and not getting so buried in your employer’s requirements that you lose sight of your own career and lifestyle wellbeing, or vice versa. Employers will value people who are engaged and ‘think ahead’ – they want to get the very best performance from you.
The CCS Taking Control of your Career Management programme covers:
