The Career Strategy Framework is a playbook of 7 principles with modules that help you to design and travel a unique career path.
It’s the collection and integration of ideas across 7 principles that make this framework unique. It captures what is required to manage your career from an end-to-end perspective.
Practicing these ideas can lead to freedom, higher income, and more fulfillment. You will increase the likelihood that you will gravitate to a career you love and earn achievement that is unique to your talents, experience, and personality.
Your actual life will evolve into the life you wish for.
It requires work and patience applying the framework over a period of time to develop a strategic mindset and see results.
Nobody can do this other than you – there are no silver bullets.
Taking control of how you want to spend each day is one of life’s most important tasks.
The career path we choose is one of the most important decisions in our life.
It will impact our success, wealth, the people we come in contact with, and ultimately our happiness.
But yet, how we should strategically approach and answer this question is not taught in schools.
We are given a slice of time on this earth and how we manage the journey each day will influence the experience of our professional and personal life.
Mastering a career to achieve happiness and success over a lifetime requires more than deep domain expertise.
It demands strategy and the social skills to manage oneself and master interactions with others.
By becoming a master strategist of your career, you will increase the likelihood that you will live the life you wish for and make use of the most valued asset – time.
This can lead to making more money, realizing higher levels of contribution, and mastering your internal state of happiness.
Human capital is generally the most significant expense for an organization. It’s also the engine that translates ideas into products and services that create value for customers and shareholders.
An organization can maximize its return on human capital and competitive position by aligning the needs of the organization with the career aspirations of its employees.
Organizations become a magnet for talent when they institutionalize a “win-win” culture.
Adopting a proven framework that is more than just helping employees find their next job will develop the whole person and deliver business results.
