Our courses are highly participatory workshops. We explore issues and practice skills during individual and group exercises. There is ample opportunity to ask questions about personal business challenges.
Along with our Business Workbook, we use checklists, questionnaires, guides, worksheets and samples to provide you with tangible guidance in developing new skills. Numerous tips and techniques are contained in the course materials and reinforced during both group and individual exercises.
In summary, our approach is to do it rather than talk about it.
We also provide flexible methods of delivery for our career search and development coaching sessions. You can access our services by email, telephone and conferencing from any location in the world. We are here to provide you with reliable and convenient service.
Our focus is on reality based, practical material that you can apply to your on the job situation. We concentrate our efforts on solutions. The new skills you gain will have practical value in the "real world". We model what we teach at all times. We will survey your interests and concerns before the workshop begins and do our very best to address each and every one. We provide the intensive focus of single-subject workshops rather than brief conference-style sessions.
Studies have shown that if new material is not used within 30 days, over 90% of that material is forgotten. To help you retain the new skills, we provide a Comprehensive Business Workbook you can refer to long after the workshop. We believe that the most beneficial parts of our workshops are your opportunities to perform the new skills and receive feedback.
We follow a quick pace in our workshops. Expect a high-content, high-involvement, high-energy program. Our workshops require effort on your part, but we also make sure that they are lively, entertaining, and fun. We do not complicate the material. You will leave with the feeling "This isn't so hard. I can do it." We won't overwhelm you or try to impress you with our skill: we want you to be impressed with your own skill by the time you leave. The focus and efficiency you gain will reduce your extra workload.
Our materials are drawn from years of experience in the field. We base our workshops on a realistic approach to the business environment. We continuously improve our workshops based on trainee suggestions and feedback. Our goal is to make our workshops as "user-friendly" as possible.
Our coaching sessions rely on support to you from business and career development experts who can provide you with up to date labour market information and realistic and reliable information to suit your needs - whether it is to seek a career in BC or Canada for the first time, to relocate in Canada, or to consider and plan for your next career move.
