What’s Covered in the Career Planning Workshop?

There are no straight lines in career development these days. What used to be a ladder now looks more like a jungle gym. Should you focus on the management track, or pursue deep technical knowledge? What are the most valuable skills in today’s job market? How do you stay on top of your game, and avoid becoming obsolete? In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to take the lead in your personal professional development.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why the career “ladder” is dead (and how you should be thinking about your career instead).
  • How to assess yourself and your skills to identify your best opportunities.
  • Two models for goal planning (and hands-on activities to create an actionable plan).



The career planning workshop was amazing! I love the tools we used in the course, and having access to the online version as well was great. I can go back anytime an revisit specific modules.
