Career Development is a lifelong psychological and behavioral process which shapes your career over a life span. As such, career development involves the creation of a career pattern, decision-making style, integration of life roles, values expression, and self concepts.
In organizational development (or OD), the study of career development looks at:
1. How individuals manage their careers within and between organizations and,
2. How organizations structure the career progress of their employees.
Career Development in the 21st Century has changed. Technology and Social Networks like LinkedIn have changed they way organizations source Human Resources.
Computers are making work harder.
The easy work is being "automated" out of existence. Humans who do "white-collar" work are paid for their ability to make decisions. Once decision-making is automated, then that work disappears.
Only the "skilled" will survive. Continuous training will be required to stay ahead of the automation process. If you fall-off the learning curve, then you will find yourself un-employed, or worse, un-employable.
Social Networks will make it harder to "hide" and you will be required to "keep track" of your accomplishments. With more recruiters and HR departments using social networks like LinkedIn to identify human resources, it will be critical that you maintain your "presence" on the web. Professionals who choose to ignore "social networking" will become invisible - they will vanish" out of the "job market."
Continuous Career Development is required to "stay in the game." Because Training is a critical component of Career Development, organizations invest large amounts of money getting their staff trained. Unfortunately, EVERYONE is SUPER BUSY and the time spent in training is time away from work. Existing work "backlogs" while the staff is in class.
When the staff returns to work and eliminates the backlog, most of what was learned in class "evaporates.
So what is the Solution?
To help professionals retain what they have learned in class, what is needed is a heavy dose of "Follow Up and Follow Through" Executive Coaching through the use of a Career Coaching Cookbook. This holds professionals accountable to their measurable Career Development Objectives (CDOs).
How does it work?
CDOs, Coaching and Feedback
Once you have established your Career Development Objectives (CDOs), we will coach you toward achieving them by establishing a systematic approach for feedback. This insures that you are continuously working towards completing each milestone.
Our role is to help you "work on" your career versus simply "working in" your job, and we will keep you focused.

Career Coaching Overview:
Milestone 1: Polish Your Profile (ACCOMPLISHMENT) - LinkedIn is your Career Development starting point. It is the largest business-to-business social network with over 120 million professionals like yourself. For most large companies, it has become the primary tool used to identify and source Human Resources. The key to successfully using LinkedIn is the profile. Your profile is your calling card of the future. So our first Milestone is to Polish Your Profile. The objective is to put your best foot forward. To do this you will need to understand which components of your profile are most critical from an analysis perspective.
Milestone 2: Build Your Library (PROFESSIONALISM) - If every project is rehearsal for the next project and professionalism is the paperwork you leave behind, then the next milestone, Build Your Library, will be instrumental to your success. A library is a storage area of re-usable content. The library will be used to organize your documentation for project re-use. The library is the foundation for your career "Body of Work."
Milestone 3: Create Your Business Case (PROOF) - A business case captures the reasoning for initiating a project or task. It is often presented in a well-structured written document, but it may also come in the form of a short verbal argument or presentation. The logic of the business case is that, whenever resources such as money or effort are consumed, they should be in support of a specific business need. An example could be that a software upgrade might improve system performance, but the business case is that better performance would improve customer satisfaction, require less task processing time, or reduce system maintenance costs. A compelling business case adequately captures both the quantifiable and unquantifiable characteristics of a propose project.
Milestone 4: Sell Your Budget (PERSUASION) - Once you have developed your business case, then you need to sell a budget to your senior executives. Learning how to sell is an important and useful skill needed throughout your career. Fortunately, the formula for presenting a sales presentation was established many years ago and has changed very little since. We will help you implement the formula.

About Executive Coaching and Career Development:
Executive coaching provides an ongoing relationship designed to help you produce fulfilling results in your professional life. Coaches are trained to listen, to observe, and to customize their approach to your individual needs.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
In an age when any competitive edge can be a difference-maker, why not try to gain an edge on your peers and do some good for your organization in the process?
Coaching affords you support as you face the problems that management deals with in everyday life. In partnership with you, we troubleshoot and isolate the areas to be targeted, then determine a plan to reach the desired outcome.
It's all about being effective with people!
We believe that change requires more than a one-time encounter. Because habits turn into patterns that are resistant to change, a coach comes alongside to enable you to identify the non-productive behavior and choose a more productive response to your circumstance. Ongoing support allows you to develop the necessary skills, intrapersonally and interpersonally, to maintain and sustain effective relationships.
Though the coaching focus is on your current situation and future objectives, the past is addressed when it obstructs the present or keeps you from moving forward.
The outcome of effective coaching is a new perspective on yourself and your situation with increased clarity and a new sense of direction toward increased performance.
Success is about moving forward in faith rather than reacting out of fear. Good coaching is about the right balance between support and challenge.

Executive Coaching is becoming more and more common today as individuals are looking for ways to develop their careers.
The prevalence of computers today have made Executive Coaching easier than ever before.
There are many advantages to this type of Coaching that benefit not only you, the employee, but also the organization.
One of the primary benefits is the ability to be coached in an environment that is familiar.
Many studies have shown that people who are coached in a familiar environment learn better than those who are in an unfamiliar environment.
When you are able to learn in a familiar environment you will be better able to focus on the new material instead of your surroundings.
In addition, having executive coaching onsite is preferential because of the cost savings.
Instead of paying to send people to receive coaching elsewhere, organizations are choosing to coach onsite because it saves a lot of money.
Even if the organization has to pay for people to come to them or has to pay for a program, this is usually much more affordable than paying for several people to travel wherever coaching is necessary.

P.S. Coaching Pays Off...Particularly When Times Are Tough
Studies show that coaching has a positive impact on performance, for both those being coached and their organizations.
Benefits of coaching include maintaining a competitive position, improving quality and productivity, and increasing employee retention and morale.
Research also shows that coaching is even more important during times of economic stress.
Just like a high performance race car, individual performance must also be finely tuned. You must have the skills to get the most out of your organization's infrastructures.
This is especially true for IT organizations, where technology advances at a gallop and the cost of keeping up is relentlessly weighed against potential productivity gains.
Institutions must maximize their return on IT hardware and software investments.
Performance must be finely tuned.
Employees must have the skills to get the most out of their organizations network, applications, data centers, operating systems, managed services, and other IT infrastructures.
P.P.S Get Reimbursed For Coaching
Its All About Value
You know you need coaching; the trick today is how to pay for it and work it into your demanding schedule.
Staffing and budgets are flat or declining, but the workload is rising. Yet even with todays lean budgets, many professionals are getting the valuable coaching they need by locating coaching funds hidden in the most interesting places.
You can, too.
Many organizations offer reimbursement programs for their employees.
These institutions view continuous coaching as a plus for the bottom line of the organization.
Employees who keep up their knowledge and skills tend to be more productive; employees working in an organization that fosters employee growth tend to be more loyal to that organization.
HOW TO DETERMINE WHETHER YOUR ORGANIZATION OFFERS COACHING REIMBURSEMENT
Considered an employee benefit, coaching reimbursement programs are often managed by the human resources (HR) department. In some cases, they may be tied to the training budget for each department.
Talk with your manager or your HR office to see if your organization has a reimbursement program.
Program requirements vary from organization to organization, so review the requirements carefully.
