Benefits of attending

Delegates will leave this session with an idea of their own personal motivational drivers and work-based strengths through a combination of discussion, theoretical input and the Strengthscope™ sorting cards exercise. Strategies for capitalising on them to aid efficiency and job satisfaction and how to prevent them going into overdrive will be identified.

Secondly, the applicability of the above to taking charge of an individual’s career will enable delegates to view the process as positively as possible. Delegates will leave the session with a clear idea of how to write a CV that packs a punch, deal with interviews and assessments and start their new role successfully – all delivered by an Occupational Psychologist who has interviewed and assessed candidates in many organisations.

Delegates will get a copy of the book, too!
