Are your employees or clients feeling stuck in their choice of career or dissatisfied with their current job and not sure which direction to go? For almost 50 years, people have turned to Career Anchors to discover their "career anchor," a combination of perceived areas of competence, motives, and values related to occupational work choices. Career Anchors helps participants identify areas of competence, motives, and values related to their work choices, based on the eight "Career Anchors":
- Technical/Functional Competence
- General Managerial Competence
- Entrepreneurial Creativity
- Service/Dedication to a Cause
- Pure Challenge
Every person is concerned to some degree with each of these issues. The label "career anchor" indicates an area of such paramount importance to a person that he or she would not give it up. The person comes to define his or her basic self-image in terms of that concern, and it becomes an overriding issue at every stage of their career.
