Several organizations have prepared workbooks to guide their employees individually through systematic self-assessment of values, interests, abilities, goals and personal development plans. Employees should be encouraged to assume responsibility for their own careers. Knowing which career you want to pursue is an important first step to tackling your job search and career goals. However, simply identifying an ideal position will not propel you to achieve these goals. A career workshop can help you do just that. It can also help you learn how to make career decisions, set career goals, create career options, seek career planning information, and at the same time build confidence and self-esteem.
Ask peers and acquaintances about their career plans; also ask them how they arrived at their career goals.
Consider the responses, as well as your own career plans and information gleaned from your textbook. In your initial post:
- Discuss at least three issues that Human resources must include in a workshop on career planning.
- In your discussion, state why you feel these issues are critical in developing effective career strategies.
- Provide specific examples.
Identifying and developing global leaders is a key concern for international companies. Compare and contrast the skills and context of the traditional, national manager with that of the international manager. Your original response to this discussion question should be 150-200 words.
