why does it matter
Why does it matter?
  • “I want to work on wall street in finance”
  • Meaningful work requires a realistic appraisal of your Interests, Motivations and Skills.

your vision
Your Vision

    • Industry knowledge
    • Organizational culture
    • Skill acquisition
    • Relationships with significant others
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Geographic location

    • Numerous articles in the Harvard Business Review, Fortune, Fast Company, and other popular business press
  • Using a database of more than 400,000 business professionals collected over 13 years
your interests
Your Interests
  • Interests patterns are stable- they don’t change much over life times.
  • Independent of each other
  • Forced to make a choice (no middle point)
your motivators
Your Motivators
  • No good or bad motivators
  • Relatively stable but could change
  • Should be in 9-12 range. If you have no score over 8- retake
  • Don’t base a career choice on motivators alone
self efficacy
Self Efficacy
  • “Even though I can’t do it right now, I can learn what it takes to be successful”
  • Why does it matter?
  • Self Efficacy Influences
  • Not innate for most of us
    • Success breeds success/Small wins
    • Vicarious experience
    • Verbal persuasion
now what
Now what?
  • Successful career cannot be accomplished without detailed self understanding
  • Use this knowledge and language to build your career brand
  • Remember interests and how they match with your current or future career are the most important
  • How your work’s culture fits your personality is important too
    • You’re the pilot, not the passenger here. You CAN build skills through practice and persistence
