Most employees believe their managers have their best interests at heart. Many managers want to help, but don’t know how. Employees are typically thrown into the water and expected to sink or swim, and few are given a manual on how to swim.

Career advice is typically reactive, tactical, and not tied to a company’s culture or a strategic road map for career success. Those who receive daily work instructions are seldom given the road map for how to proactively compete for jobs and promotions.

This course begins with a short review of the Strategic Formula #1 and how well you are currently competing. Then we explain a new paradigm for becoming the Value Worker that companies want to hire and promote. Next, we disclose a strategic paradigm definition that may surprise most of you. I call this strategic paradigm the “Laws of Business”. This is the same definition that businesses use for success and you can too. Finally, we show you the Strategic Career Road Map for how to compete in your career marketplace. You can use this Road Map immediately to get started on optimizing your personally defined path toward future career success.

The course was very clear and concise. I found it surprising that this course was relevant to the type of work environment I am currently in and it definitely gives me a new perspective especially as a millennial. Individuals in enterprises or businesses that live off of their revenue would be highly benefited from this course.

Excellent course and learned a lot to start focusing on career roadmap and how results and relationships play equal role as an element of success and how to think like an entrepreneur in respect to product development, marketing and sales. The strategic career road map is very helpful.
