Stage 1: Who am I?
The journey begins with an initial consultation between the interested party and Alastair Hill, the Career Coach, to assess whether the programme will match the individual’s needs. On deciding to join the programme, 'Stage 1: Who Am I?' begins with the candidates being invited to complete a number of exercises to help build a picture of who they are in terms of their skills, aptitudes, talents, values, passions and interests. Two notable exercises are the online Strengthsfinder 2.0 Assessment and the PRISM Career Explorer. The PRISM Career Explorer allows candidates to align their dominant behaviours and their work aptitudes with up to 900 possible career options.
These exercises are conducted as home assignments and the insights and learnings are distilled and clarified during an hour and half long face-to-face session with Alastair. At the end of stage 1 the candidate will be able to put together a summary/profile on who they are and what they have to offer.
