Without Understanding & Ownership, Results Will Always Fall Short

The Economy Has Changed. What People Want Has Changed. We are not paid for our time; we are paid for our Value. The greater the value we provide, the more success we have. Hard and soft skill training is important, but without Career Ownership & Advancement Training™ (COAT), results and growth are compromised.

We Know it is About Doing More for More

Serving clients and employers for this economy is challenging. Employers need employees that “get it”, take ownership, and perform, and clients want onramps and pathways that suit them and the lifestyle they seek.

Three Step Process That Yields Lasting Results

Based in research and proven in practice, this is a simple, yet powerful process builds ownership, agency, motivation, action, and outcomes.

1 Understand

We take a scientific approach to shift mindset. We take them through an proprietary process to remind them that they are in charge, not only of their careers, but of their performance and growth. We simply and powerfully reveal that adding value is their vehicle for success and growth, and exactly how to add extradentary levels of value starting now.

2 Align

We help them align the value they have to offer to the value that is required to perform extraordinarily well in their role and make the greatest contribution. They work with their supervisor to validate exactly what extradentary value looks like and they develop scorecards to measure their own value in real time.

3 Act

With understanding, alignment, intention, and powerful tools they can perform better, stay longer, and contribute more. They emerge with the power to turn their current position into an opportunity to show you what they are made of, benefiting them and your organization in enduring ways.

We learn from a young age that if we work hard and keep our heads down, we will earn increasing responsibilities and pay. That used to be true when businesses felt a greater responsibility to nurture and grow their employees. But now that everything is in service to the short-term bottom line for stockholders, the rules have changed.

The world of work has changed. Few people graduate, climb onto the career ladder, then climb off decades later from a higher rung with a golden retirement watch. Most people work for many companies, in many industries, and under many different terms during the course of their careers.

Golden watch pathways have been replaced by lower pay jobs and less opportunities for career growth. Others have been broken down into small chunks of contract work. This puts people at constant risk of stagnating or even sliding backward. The middle class is shrinking, and no one is immune.

All of this means that ordinary people are able - and really, required – to shape their own career pathways.
