Career Protocol Trainings offer timeless wisdom and bright ideas to help professionals be all they can be at work. The subtle disciplines of eastern and western philosophy and the art form of narrative combine with the rigorous disciplines of management consulting and structured thinking to create our experiential learning programs. Designed to give students both transformative epiphanies and “Monday morning action items,” these workshops deliver both short term and long term gains for students as they seek to actively manage their careers, achieve ambitious goals, and have more fun at work.
The Happy at Work Workshop
AKA Identify Your Spikes
Build your career in the right direction fast by homing in on your unique passions.
Top performers do things differently. They identify what they really want from their career at each step and then pursue it with abandon. They don’t go with the flow or try to be all things to all people. They focus on what they love, build capacities fast, and add differential value with their spikes – the parts of their performance reviews that are off the charts. If you want to move up fast, start with what makes you special. In this lively interactive session with Career Coach, Angela Guido, you’ll have the chance to identify what makes you happy at work and pinpoint one or two spikes (strengths, skills, and passions you love) that you want to develop in the next 6 months to advance your career and differentiate yourself as a top contributor.
