Career Coaching

Career CoachingThe reasons why good people quit are limitless. Do you feel undervalued, bored or anxious about your business or employees? Perhaps you’ve lost confidence in management or even your own performance. Maybe you don’t have a good work/life balance.

No career coach can chart you on the perfect career path. Instead, what the executive coaches at QLI International can do is give you the tools for a self-directed journey toward a more fulfilling career.

Finding the Right Career Coach

What does the ideal position look like for you?

Too often a career coach will hastily advise a career transition. You may have a feeling of denial, fear, anger or even depression. Your preferences, attitudes and behaviors toward your employer may be askew. The truth is change is inevitable, even within your organization.

All may not be lost.

What’s really in your way? Your dream job may be staring right back at you. Even if you have tried and failed, perhaps you’ve neglected the right strategy. Your QLI career coach will begin as your personal change agent. We will examine the obstacles you currently face and develop a plan to improve your clarity, confidence and commitment within your current position.

In some cases, however, it might be best to quit your job. Office politics, a toxic environment or a destructive company culture can be devastating to your personal and professional life.

A critical step in your career plan is the completion of psychometric assessments. While there are different methods and approaches, they all have a common goal of helping an individual gain a better understanding of his or her self.

Backed by scientific research, QLI International uses the following:

Attribute Index

The Attribute Index is a personal assessment tool that provides information as to how a person makes decisions: intrinsic, extrinsic or systematic. It also identifies areas of strengths (maximizers) and areas of weakness (minimizers). Our approach is unique in that we measure where an individual is now and what his or her essential elements are – those that can become predictors of future strengths.

The DISC Index

The DISC Index can be used in a wide variety of situations such as selection and hiring, success planning, team development, enhanced communication and improving the relationship between managers and their team members. Each DISC report comes with a personal debrief and summary questions to help individuals understand and specifically apply the knowledge to their personal and professional success.

The Values Index

The Values Index provides insight into your own motivational drivers influencing your behavior and actions. The seven dimensions of value are aesthetic, altruistic, economic, individualistic, political, regulatory and theoretical. It is this understanding that helps to ensure that optimal motivation, passion and drive are always created to achieve the highest levels of personal and professional success.

D.I.AL.O.G.

D.I.AL.O.G. (Data Indicating Alignment of Organizational Goals) is a unique organizational assessment tool that provides information as to how well critical elements are working together to achieve business and strategic goals. It also identifies which of these critical elements are working against you. Our approach is unique in that we measure the interrelationships of the essential elements, which become predictors of future strength.
