Self-directed Career Coaching tools

As well as providing a wealth of video, bite-sized text resources and downloads, the portal provides a suite of interactive career coaching and cpd tools, drawn from the best career coaching practices. These include the unique CareerPulse Healthcheck, an optional Career Map Explorer tailored to your organisation, and a flexible tool for professionals to plan and record their CPD.

  • The CareerPulse™ tool helps people understand the career management skills that build career agility – and take ownership of their career development.

    Organisations increasingly need agile employees who can use their talents in different roles and projects. Employees want to develop their careers but often lack understanding of career management skills.

    Based on 7 evidence-based career habits, CareerPulse™ provides individuals with feedback on their career health, identifying priority actions for development.

    Career Health, 7 Dimensions: Spot the Opportunities / Adapt to Change / Know yourself / Build your network / Build your brand / Reflect and plan / Stretch yourself

    Aggregate (anonymized) results from CareerPulse™ provide valuable data to enhance your organizational career and talent strategies.

  • Career Map Explorer is a career pathing and career mapping software tool. It enables employees to explore your organisational career framework in a new way, learning about the wide range of career paths available

    You want to make the most of the talent within your organisation, providing career progression to retain valuable knowledge and skills. In practice employees leave when they can’t see opportunities for career development, while others are over-reliant on already-stretched managers to provide career direction.

    Career Map Explorer enables employees to understand career options and assess themselves against the requirements of a function at a particular level. Individuals can review suggested actions, and create a practical action plan of next steps to build their experience and skills.

    We can provide consultancy support to help you define your career framework where needed.
