Supporting Career Development

Project managers and human resources personnel in particular deal with career development frequently. They are the ones who are required to dive into the world of performance and career management for their employees. Helping reports to improve is one of the toughest aspects of being a manager and management in general. That’s where a powerful training program can be valuable. At HRDQ, we provide all of the assessments, activities and workshops you need to support this key business area. You can browse our products below, or contact us for assistance in building a custom program to meet your needs.

Identify Career Anchors

There are a few different career areas, called “anchors” that people can focus on when looking at their own development. These areas can help people see what the best type of career path is for them, and what things are non-negotiable:

  • Technical/Functional Competence. The ability to apply skills to technology in the workplace.
  • General Managerial Competence. Managing and contributing to the organization’s success.
  • Autonomy/Independence. The ability to define one’s own work and work independently.
  • Security/Stability. Desiring steady employment and decreased uncertainty.
  • Entrepreneurial Creativity. Creating an enterprise with innovative thinking and development.
  • Service/Dedication to a Cause. The opportunity to pursue work that has meaning and value.
  • Pure Challenge. A competitive role that allows solving complex problems.
  • Lifestyle. The opportunity to balance work and home life.

These anchors are something that a person does not want to give up in their work life. They tend to evolve and strengthen with adult experience. If a job or career does not allow expression of the anchor, it will show up in hobbies or side jobs instead. It’s an important part of career development.

Build An Effective Training Program

There are specific career development training materials that can help managers and leaders assist their direct reports with their workplace growth and success. These materials range in topics from effective performance reviews, improved work habits, more happiness and satisfaction at work, job challenges, diversity and inclusion, and adaptability. These tools allow managers to evaluate their employees’ strengths and weaknesses with workshops and assessments that contribute to their overall career development and direction.
