Q: What industry does the program target?
A: The program is not industry specific. The skills and insights learned are transferable.
Q: Are these job related tools or tools to build confidence in getting a job?
A: It addresses the needs of both, though will probably help those who are already employed more than those who are unemployed because they’ll be able to practice more of the skills during their current employment and have more opportunity for promotion. (It will also help them in building additional confidence when applying for jobs elsewhere.)
During the coaching sessions we can apply more focus in one or other direction depending upon the needs of the person asking the question or the direction the group wants more emphasis on.
Q: What is the field in which the program will be based?
A: The program isn’t based around any specific field of engineering. In fact, the majority of principles covered apply to fields other than engineering. However, the logic, analytical capabilities and disciplines that engineers have puts them in good stead to effectively apply all of the concepts.
The additional reason the program is great for engineers is that they’re typically very ‘left brain’ logical/analytical, yet they need to interact and influence many ‘right brain’ people to be outstanding in creating results in their business and to most effectively navigate their career path. It’s because of this that the program has been developed and will be run by Dennis (an engineer) and Daniel (a non-engineer, who is expert in the psychological / ‘human factors’).
Q: Sounds interesting, but what if I’m happy with the direction and path that my career is taking at the moment?
A: The program isn’t just about career direction. It’s also about increasing speed in that direction while enhancing the performance of the business you work for.
One of the many by-products is the ability to increase your value to the business and better negotiate pay increases and promotions.
