A Lifelong Investment in Your Career Goals
Career development in the 21st Century is an ongoing process
that continually evaluates the “fit” or satisfaction
of an individual with their work. The Career Vision model
sequences the key elements necessary for sound career decisions
and then teaches individuals how to cycle confidently through
each career transition.
The Career Vision Model
First, understanding your own natural abilities
is vital if you expect to achieve satisfaction in your work.
So the Ball
Aptitude Battery® is the central part of the initial
assessment. Because aptitude patterns are relatively stable
throughout life, this assessment provides a baseline for current
and future consultations.
Second, our clients create a “career
vision” or detailed picture that integrates personal
information with their current situation and opportunities
in the workplace. Understanding yourself and having a vocabulary
to talk about and define your priorities is essential to making
informed career decisions.
Third, this model reinforces the evolution
of an individual’s career development. With each cycle
of one’s career, individuals learn more quickly, assimilating
the knowledge and skills needed to successfully design their
career and lives.
The Career Vision model recognizes the ongoing need for
career decisions. As a result, our services are designed to
meet your needs at every stage of life.
The Key To Realizing Your Potential
We often speak of someone who has an ear for music, a knack
for languages, or a head for numbers. These are examples of
aptitudes—the potential to acquire a skill or learn
to perform a task. Each person has a unique combination or
pattern of aptitudes that provides important insight into
what types of work tasks and environments offer the greatest
potential for success and satisfaction. Research
and experience show that satisfaction is highest when your
work and your abilities are aligned.
Especially for Young Adults
When parents help a young adult take responsibility
to determine what they want and why, they are making a decision
about how to invest in their most valuable resource—themselves.
Successful career planning is a process of discovery and growth.
The sooner you make an effort to nurture your dreams, the
greater the likelihood they will be achieved.
We invite you to join the thousands of individuals who have
gained the Career Vision advantage in setting and achieving
their career goals.
