We are excited to launch THRIVE, our new Positive Action Career Development Programme.
The training has been built around the successful framework of EMPOWER, our award-winning Career Development Programme for Women, which has helped over 10,000 women advance their careers.
The THRIVE programme is designed to level the playing field enabling diverse talent to thrive in your organisation. This training programme is available as a three-month or six-month programme and can be delivered in a face to face or webinar format.
The programme has been designed following internal and external focus group sessions, our thanks to the external representatives from: Atkins, Arcadis, Balfour Beatty, the NHS CSO and Wates Group.
The initial module examines the rationale for the programme alongside the overwhelming business case for diversity and inclusion. Delegates will deepen their understanding of unconscious bias, stereotype threat and the dynamics of diverse groups. A range of tools are introduced to support attendees when faced with potentially difficult conversations at work. This module equips delegates with the tools and confidence to move forward, articulate ambitions and achieve more positive outcomes.
This module employs NLP techniques to understand and strengthen our own self-image and goes on to address the importance of image, visibility, and effective networking on career progression. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to showcase the talent, knowledge and achievements they have to offer their organisation, thereby giving their employers access to the widest possible talent pool.
In this module, delegates analyse their current levels of commitment, capability and confidence in achieving their career goals. The workshop enables participants to take stock of their career to date; assess their current strengths and skills; set clear goals and consolidate tools from the first two modules to create a targeted action plan for career success.
Throughout the programme, participants are supported to develop their presentation skills. In this final session, participants will be invited to deliver a short presentation to the rest of their peer group to share lessons and successes from the last six months.
“If you had told me two years ago that I would be here doing what I am doing and done what I have done I wouldn’t have believed you, It is difficult to quantify what the Skills 4 training has done for my career.”
“What really impressed us about Skills 4 was that they had managed to identify and address real issues that employees face in the workplace and provide tools for that; but not only that, they had also addressed the fact that they needed to give guidance to companies about culture.”
