1 Day Course for Staff on Career Planning
2-Hour Module on Career Discussions
There is emphasis on ensuring managers understand how to get staff
members to feel there is genuine interest in hearing their ideas about
their career issues.
The positive reinforcement model is introduced and during the two hours,
participants are introduced to the concept of creating a visual
description of career issues by drawing on their own career.
Conclusions generally emerge about the need to distinguish
responsibilities for career by highlighting the need for individuals to
take primary ownership whilst receiving encouragement and mentoring
support from management.
The importance of summarizing discussion outcomes with use of the
positive reinforcement model and an action plan with behaviours to
generate and measure the desired career outcomes concludes the module.

2-Hour Module on Development Discussions
The Dalcross approach is that for effective ongoing dialogue between manager and
staff on development and career
issues to continue, there needs to be ongoing reference points agreed.
The most obvious ones are around areas of strength and
development revealed on the job.
In our courses, we introduce SMART on the job development planning. Our development
planning format shows how to analyse major job objectives and the
skills, knowledge and experience needed to fulfil those objectives.
Participants practise their technique analysing their own job objectives
and doing self assessment on their strengths and areas for development.
